Game of Thrones actor voices new gameplay trailer

Posted by Perihelion Interactive LLC (Creator)
Hey backers,

We’re finally ready to reveal who will be voicing Lord High Admiral Suvarov!

David Bradley, who you may know from Game of Thrones as Lord Waldor Frey [ the Red Wedding planner.. ;)] has graciously voiced our Admiral. Bradley has also played roles in Dr Who, Harry Potter and Captain America too.

He is also an accomplished stage actor who has won the Lawrence Olivier award. You will get to hear his voice sooner than you think! Also, remember Suvarov is not really a Romanov (on his mother's side for example he is Black Eagle!) This announcement ties in with our next bit of news, too.

Our new trailer for The Mandate is now online both on our Kickstarter page and on our YouTube channel. It is narrated by our actor, and focuses on the crew aboard the HMS Retvizan. It should be interesting if you have been wondering how exactly The Mandate relates to Firefly and Battlestar Galactica. We have updated our Kickstarter video on the front page so go check it out or click on the youtube link above. Remember to spread it to your friends as well!

Also in the press, we did an interview with MMORPG last week and today Rock, Paper, Shotgun published a lengthy and very juicy interview with our devs which covers all things Mandate with particular emphasis on the crew. CLICK HERE to read it!

There was also a fruitful Reddit conversation about the game, which our community manager Michael gate-crashed (but he was luckily well received). We’re planning another AMA on r/games on the 20th of November, so stay tuned for an exact time. The last AMA was successful, but we’d like to host all the new backers and answer many more questions. Please let all your friends, relatives, and pets know.

Finally, don’t forget our Social Stretch Goals. By clicking ‘share’ on our Kickstarter page, you take everyone one step closer to the next Social Tier Reward. We’re at 2080 shares, and the next tier at 2140 will gain you all a release of a new batch of wallpapers as well as 4K versions of both new and existing wallpapers. Click here to download free stuff like wallpapers and the music tracks! What’s more, we’d love to see more Propaganda Machine designs so go have some fun and share with friends on Facebook!

      Backed. This is the Space RPG I've been waiting for. Also sharing on facebook and spreading by word of mouth as unfortunately I don't use much social media. Really, really hope you guys make it and if not I'll gladly fund this or a similar project again!

      I'm happy to see the InExile team put their support behind this project in their latest update.

      @Perihelion Interactive you should see if you are eligible for any backing from (created by InExile and supported by many game devs for new KS projects by successfully funded and has released their games) which could go to help The Mandate out.

      I'm shocked at even with lots of press, dev and fan support that your not funded already. You guys have a lot on the table to show and a game that looks like something that people should be interested in and want to get made.

      Here's hoping an upswing in backers and funds comes up soon, I'll see if I can up my pledge to help out.

      Love the new video! I'm glad the project is picking up some good momentum.

      That what the first action space battle trailer should have been. need MOAR of them, and YOU (or your PR company)need to throw them everywhere !!!

      Fantastic news. David Bradley is one of my favourite memebers of Britain's fine cast of character actors.

      @ Con. Lot of our backers don't want bother with facebook or rarely check on mandate and read all the details.

      @ Alexander Kickstarter should been funded before they start with Paypal but there's enough users that don't have or don't want to use credit cards on amazon. And even if we made goal with paypal funds and kickstarter combined. Without kickstarter funded to 500,000 then they lose all the kickstarter funds.

      @Shafti Here you go. If you just want the Ghost Trailer just tell it to repeat at 2:01 instead of to the start to end. Look under video for blue type font.…

      @ Donn Mannalili OMG you're CREATOR of successful project D:

      @Grant. That is because you sign up for HTML instead of text. Which HTML is like it's own little webpage so it'll increases email's size as they put embedded pictures and video into message.

      Brilliant choice for voice actor! This video gave me goosebumps towards the end *chilling*

      So we are still sitting under 2000 shares? How? This project has over 7000 backers already?

    9. J.L. on

      Really like the Ghosts of the Mandate, shows how you are between a rock and a hard place as a captain, having to balance things and living with the consequences. Chilling and heartbreaking.

      @David: That's why they try to promote the Social strech goals ;)

      Strange how the Mandate has such a slow KS accumulation. I can understand that the game doesn't take off like Tides of Numenera did, but still, the quality and promise of this game really aren't the problem. Maybe Perihelion should step up the marketing and start to advertise more aggresively. Because humbly, I don't think the problem is that not enough people *want* this game, the problem seems that not enough people *know* about it.

      Why are the pictures in my email so freaking huge?

      So, I am curious on how they are going to keep their paypal crowd sourcing side to count towards the kickstarter funding. I don't want to see this fail because of the people who funded to the PayPal side instead of through here. :(

      If there was a way to hear the first 2 minutes of that video over and over I will be very happy :D

      Great video, great update.

      So excited for this game!

      A Caretaker, a Lord, (an actor playing a) Doctor and now a High Admiral. Bradley sure does rake in the titles! :D

      Ok, if this new update (#20) doesn't make people open up their wallets to help support this game, we, as a species, are doomed to oblivion!

    18. Galit

      Wow!!! That is SO awesome!! Yay!!!! =D Great update!!!
