Computer games are a global phenomenon and a $US25 billion a year industry. Over 800 million people worldwide are regular players. Gamer Revolution looks past the hype, paranoia and hoopla to explore the real stories behind the computer game revolution.

Gamer Revolution explores how computer games are not only changing the world, but giving rise to a new version of life itself. The line between the real world and the virtual world is disappearing. Millions of people feel that they have a life inside these games and that it's better than their real life.

In part one, Gamer Revolution takes viewers around the world from Asia to the heart of the Middle East in search of the most mind-bending stories from the cutting edge of the game revolution. It also features interviews with gamers and game developers including Will Wright, creator of the wildly popular life simulation game, The Sims.

Just how pervasive has gaming become? The US army uses video games to train new recruits and to simulate real-life battle situations in preparation for combat. In Korea, computer nerds are the sex symbols of the 21st century. In Syria, a developer has designed an extremely popular shooter game in which the player gets to kill Israeli soldiers.

Every year, the biggest companies in the industry try to out-do each other in an effort to create buzz for their games. It's a high-stakes business. The development cost of a new game has almost tripled in a decade. Eighty percent of games fail in the first year, but for those who succeed, the payoff is huge.

Second episode focuses on the incredible worldwide growth of the online game revolution. Tens of millions of people are now spending more time in the virtual world of online games than they are in the real world. In Norway, 6000 gamers gather together to play online games - in a celebration of a new world.

And money makes this virtual world go round. Gamers now spend hundreds of millions of dollars on virtual items from clothing, furniture to real estate. In Miami, Florida a hustling entrepreneur spends $US100,000 on a virtual space station that exists only in a game. His goal is to be the first virtual Donald Trump.

As the power of the games grows, they are colonizing more and more of our lives. Now online games are approaching the final frontier: sex. In the world of online sex games, everyone is a sexual super-hero.

From virtual money and virtual power to the search for virtual fame - the world of online games is like no place on earth.

Gamer Revolution takes the pulse of this global phenomenon right now, as it is happening. It is a thought-provoking, powerful progress report from the frontlines of the digital transformation and shows how computer games are changing the world.
