New Audio Drama Series Announced for Chaos Reborn
Snapshot Games and The Radio Theatre Workshop to develop new multimedia tie-ins
View the Kickstarter page here.
The Radio Theatre Workshop has announced a partnership with
Snapshot Games to create a range of new full-cast audio dramas, based on the fantasy combat game
Chaos Reborn. The first releases are planned for early 2016. The new series of audio adventures
will explore the diverse environments and characters and provide an experience which complements the game.
Former producer of Escape Velocity and director of the acclaimed Elite: Dangerous audiobooks
Christopher Jarvis said, “We're massive fans of Julian Gollop's game and it's amazing to work
alongside the developers, because we get access to all the art and sound effects, which enable us to
create something really faithful. This will mean that fans of the Chaos Reborn game can keep
enjoying the experience even when they're away from their PCs.”
SnapshotGames CEO Julian Gollop said, “The prospect of high quality audio drama based in the
universe of Chaos Reborn is tremendously exciting. Exploring the universe of Chaos Reborn
through drama will greatly enrich players' experience of the game.”
The next step for the series is to secure costs for actors and production and The Radio Theatre
Workshop has a crowdfund project launching on the 26th October on Kickstarter to coincide with the
official release of the videogame.
Christopher Jarvis said, “It isn't just for the gamers. They'll enjoy hearing the game world expanded
with great actors and exciting stories, while audio drama fans will get a wholly untapped fantasy
setting to explore. It has everything: giants, unicorns, magic trees, dragons, goblins, vampires and,
of course, battling wizards. Bringing that all together is an amazing challenge and a privilege.”
It seems that some of you still have not got your T-shirts, for which I apologise profusely. We will be offering some suitable compensation for this, so please contact me via Kickstarter if you have not yet received your t-shirts, and please state how many you ordered.
