Who and what is the Commander?


Oh, look, it's one of those viral-marketing videos designed to build so much hype about an unknown project that thousands of people will be thrilled by whatever it turns out to be! We'll go ahead and contribute to the hype, because why not. Maybe one of you will figure something out!

IGN claims this video relates to a Wii-exclusive game coming in 2009, but really, it could be anything. It was posted on Vimeo by a user named CommanderVideo with no history at all, and it's also available on a website, commandervideo.com, whose WHOIS information is masked.

As for the video itself, we see a grid sequence made to look sort of like an arcade game startup screen, and what looks like several seconds of an abstract top-down shooter. And a bunch of nonsense. But hey, we like abstract shooters!
