Today’s the day! For last minute preparations, we recommend “Doomsday” by Wynto/astragon, with our music and sound effects… It’s an apocalypse tycoon, making fun of yet another doomsday scare, and one of these rare instances when my job’s and my band’s interests overlap…
Word Wonders by our friends at Chimera / RCP / Dreamfab is now out for iOS devices and PC (with our music and sounds): It’s a combat word puzzle game in an Arabian Nights setting. We worked on a prototype for that one 2 years ago, too, good to see it finally come to fruition – and it’s fun! Check it out:
The biggest industry award in Germany – Deutscher Entwicklerpreis (German Developer Awards) – announced their nominations, 12 of them go to games we were involved with, including indirectly Best Sound for Risen 2, for which Dominik and Daniel were asked by Dynamedion to provide a few songs. The other games are: Wimmelburg, The Dark Eye – Chains of Satinav, Forge of Empires, Skylancer and Happy Hills. We wish all our partners and friends best of luck, see you there on the 12th of December in Düsseldorf.
We were interviewed for “Musikmarkt” for their game music special. “Musikmarkt” is a big and serious German music magazine, among other things home of the official media control charts. Check out the August issue for the 4 pages interview, in which we also battle it out with the collecting society GEMA. 😉
The German interview is also readable online, but sadly not for free.
Origamigore is now available on the app store. We provided sound effects and voices for this crazy Japanese game show style madness by the Skunk Brothers.. Check out the trailer below… 🙂 Big thanks to Rieke Werner and Zeis for their brilliant voice performances…
Once again I participated as a voice actor in a project by Eredalis. After 2 award-winning free campaigns for Starcraft – Broodwar (with a big story, full synchronisation and additional music), I was again asked to voice a role in his (German) campaign for Warcraft III. The first part is up now.
A new game we are working on: Kalypso and Realmforge just announced “DARK”, a stealth-action game in a modern vampire setting, to be released 1st quarter of 2013 for PC and console. What is BEST is that I am working closely with the developer, being in their offices once a week throughout the development process, doing sound design and integrating it! (a bit of a dream come true)
I am a big fan of the vampire setting, and I get along very well with Realmforge (we provided audio for their game “Dungeons”), so I couldn’t be happier.
But that won’t be the last surprise for this year, stay tuned… 😉 – Daniel
