Several months ago, Darkraven Games (a subsidiary of Ruby Nile Games) launched the successfulDarkraven Fantasy Soundscapes. Since then, it has sold over 400 copies and been picked up for distribution by a publisher. It was followed by the 260+ backer Cthulhu Soundscape. Now, Darkraven launches the anticipated Science Fiction Soundscapes. Featuring 36+ high quality 256 kbps MP3 soundscapes for your science fiction and cyberpunk needs, Darkraven Science Fiction Soundscapes follows in the tradition of its predecessor. As with the successful Darkraven Fantasy Soundscapes, most SciFi tracks are a solid 15 minutes long to reduce the amount of looping your players have to put up with. All products are delivered via digital download with DropSend.

Here are a few samples from the project. Listen to dozens of additional free samples below.

   

This is what Crits Happen had to say about our Darkraven Fantasy Soundscapes which are now available at www.darkravengames.com. You can also find more info on the original Kickstarter page.

With these tracks, your players will find plenty of sounds here covering everything from apartments three miles in the sky to construction at ground level -- as well as the busy starports, its workshops, and many sounds. Enjoy three hours of audio on twelve tracks.

Samples above include (in order): Sky City, Apartment in the City, Public Transportation, Imperial City (Ground Level), Quiet Intersection, Starport Workshop, Starport Tarmac, Power Station, Starport Diner. 

To boldly go... With Darkraven's Starship sounds, you will have new tools to immerse your players in the future. Whether your ship is 400 meters long or 4 miles, these sounds should do the trick to bringing your space adventures to life.

Samples above include (in order): Bridge During A Massive Starship Battle, Starship Landing Bay, Starship Landing, Starship Elevators, Captain's Cabin, Bridge with Threat, Quiet Bridge, and Battle Station During Battle.

 Off world adventures aren't complete without massive industrial facilities.

Samples above include (in order): Mining, Processing 1, Processing 2, Orbit Transfer Facility, Power Core.

 With our atmospheres give you additional tools in your toolbox to turn your worlds into reality.

Samples above include (in order): Medium Gun Battle, Battle Mech Repair Facility, Rough Neighborhood, Abandoned Factory 1, Abandoned Factory 2, SciFi Interior 1, Science Lab, Fried Control Room

Science Fiction Gold is a special package which is just a way for us to thank those who believe in us enough to back us at the $79 level. People backing at that level get the full standard package and ALSO receive several exterior City Soundscapes with rain, two alternate battle tracks, and several other additional atmospheric tracks - for a total of 10 additional tracks with 2.5 hours of audio. Everyone with a minimum contribution level of $79 gets a copy of these -- as well as any contribution package which is a "GOLD" package. Additionally, anyone with a GOLD package will get any additional tracks "okayed" for the project.

Samples above include: Battle Indoors, The Nova Bar, The Nova Bar (alternate), Harbour, Abandoned Factory with Monster

Atmospheres II is a stretch goal which is unlocked at $12,000. When we reach this level, we will add 5 additional atmospheres. Everyone with a minimum contribution level of $44 gets these.

Atmospheres III is a stretch goal which is unlocked at $18,000. When we reach this level, we will add 5 additional atmospheres. Everyone with a minimum contribution level of $44 gets these.

Atmospheres III is a stretch goal which is unlocked at $24,000. When we reach this level, we will add 4 additional atmospheres with a battle theme. Everyone with a minimum contribution level of $44 gets these.

The Facebook bonus files are unlocked when the total combined Facebook likes (www.facebook.com/darkravengames) and Facebook shares shown here on this Kickstarter exceed a combined total of 150. At that point an extra 4 tracks with 1 hour of audio will be unlocked! Everyone with a minimum contribution level of $44 gets these.

We have absolutely no experience with epic science fiction film franchises, but we are pretty sure $220 million is about what it would cost to knock one out. Indulge us! :) Besides, we really would love to meet Keira Knightly. And if we can't get her, we'll take Candice Swanepoel -- we're sure she would do just fine in a major motion picture role. Oh. We should probably make it completely clear that neither Keira Knightly or Candice Swanepoel have anything to do with this project. Nor do they endorse it in any way, shape, or form. Darn.

ABOUT US

We are a team of musicians, sound designers, and engineer who work in Miami, Florida and are looking forward to bringing you our vision of what sound design for fantasy games can be like. Funds raised on Kickstarter will be used to purchase additional samples and improve the array of sounds and expand the line in future releases -- as well as expand the business. By funding us, you will help us create one or two supplements to this product line in the future.

Risks and challenges

With digital distribution of the product, there are few large risks or challenges associated with the project. Darkraven Fantasy Soundscapes and Darkraven Cthulhu Soundscapes were delivered by digital download on time and successfully. We expect the same to happen here. We also think that by committing to delivery by February of 2014, we can guarantee our backers and customers a quality product.
