A World of Her PWN is an episodic internet series featured on Escapist Magazine. Created by Douglas MacKrell and Samantha Mason, the story revolves around the character Samantha Baker, a journalist for the fictional online gaming magazine, Isometric View. While primarily a live-action series, video-game elements are frequently interspersed throughout the storyline from Samantha's point of view using animation and digital effects. Past video games featured in the series include Super Mario Bros, Mortal Kombat, Pac Man, Guitar Hero, and Resident Evil. The first episode officially aired as part of The Escapist Show on December 16, 2008, after winning an Honorable Mention in the Escapist Film Festival.[1]

The title refers to the slang term Pwn, used primarily in the internet gaming culture to taunt an opponent who has just been soundly defeated (e.g."You just got pwned!").
