DEEP MADNESS - THE EXPERIENCE
For those backing the basic "Deep Madness" package, you will be embarking on a 2 hour sound journey through the deep sea mining facility. Your senses will be taken on a guided tour of many of the environments in the facility in their normal and "devoured" states while you struggle to maintain your sanity as you are stalked by creatures from another dimension. Enjoy this epic journey of horror and suspense. Here we offer you five awesome samples of this massive 120 minute track to give you a taste of what to expect for your deep sea game evenings!  

FORMAT: All "Deep Madness" audio products will be 320kbps MP3s. Delivery by digital download. 

"Deep Madness" - The Experience - Standard Ed. - Sample 1
Sub docking and investigator arrival in an underwater world where the untold horrors of the deep and possible death lurk around every corner. Sounds of the airlock and water evacuation system can be heard as the clear announcement is made by creatures from another dimension, that they are not welcome here.

"Deep Madness" - The Experience - Standard Ed. - Sample 2
The first room is devoured by the evils of the other world and your investigator's sanity is challenged.

"Deep Madness" - The Experience - Standard Ed. - Sample 3
Madness threatens to consume your investigator's minds as the deep ocean all around you comes to life and threatens to crush their will power to continue. Is it the walls of the station threatening to collapse? Or the walls of your own willpower?

"Deep Madness" - The Experience - Standard Ed. - Sample 4
Can you go on like this? Your party's determination wavers in the face of these terrors of the deep.

"Deep Madness" - The Experience - Standard Ed. - Sample 5

The "Deep Madness Audio" Gold Edition gets you everything that the "Standard Edition" gets you, PLUS: 1) The Superlative Edition of "Deep Madness: The Experience", which is the standard 2 hour sound adventure with amazing music from Joshua Cohen's "Cthulhu 2: Return of the Old Ones" layered in to many areas for extra impact (samples below) AND, 2) you ALSO get 16 BONUS fifteen minute tracks of sound for your table top games. With this you get 8 rooms which are represented in both their regular and "devoured/mad" states. That is four hours of sound for your table top games!

DEEP MADNESS - THE EXPERIENCE: SUPERLATIVE EDITION
This is the standard edition of the 2 hour "Deep Madness" experience track with the occasional addition of stunning music from Joshua Cohen's "Cthulhu 2: Return of the Old Ones" to add additional atmosphere. There won't be orchestration everywhere, but there will be music throughout roughly 40% to 60% of the work. Check out these awesome samples:

With the "King In Yellow" upgrade package, you get two additional awesome Darkraven horror products for a full night of creepy fun with your friends. 1) "Shadows of the Mind" (Redux:Horror by Joshua Cohen which is days from completion) AND, 2) Cthulhu I Soundscape.

Included with the "King In Yellow" upgrade, you get "Shadows of the Mind". This is our 8 piece epic horror work by Joshua Cohen which was launched with the "REDUX" project. It is scheduled for 100% completion and shipping in January of 2017 (Yes! This month!). If you have already ordered our REDUX project with the horror option, please do not upgrade to King In Yellow!, you will be receiving it soon! 

There are 8 compositions here. Each composition also gets an environments track added on (for 16 tracks) and finally, you get the environment track all by itself (for a total of 24 tracks!). Have a listen to some of the samples that you get with this awesome product of horror!

Composition 1: Watcher In the Rain (Music+Sound)
This stunning piece is worthy of any Hollywood movie. Listen to this special 90 second sample to give you a feel for the quality of work that "Shadows of the Mind" delilvers from start to finish. And as mentioned above, with each composition, you get a track with just the music, one with just the sound, and one with both mixed together!

Composition 2: Abandoned Warehouse (Music+Sound)

Composition 3: Being Followed (Music+Sound) 

Composition 4: Stranger In the Crowd (Music Only Sample)

 Composition 5: Condemned Amusement Park (Music+Sound)

 

Also included with your "King In Yellow" upgrade, you get our "Cthulhu 2: Return of the Old Ones." It was part of a Kickstarter which picked up 250+ backers and over $14,000 in funding. It has since become a major seller in our catalogue. You get a total of 8 tracks and 80 minutes of stunning, Hollywood level music to immerse you in your horror adventures.

Return of the Old Ones - Sample 1: The Mystery Unfolds

Return of the Old Ones - Sample 2: The Wrath of Dagon

Return of the Old Ones - Sample 3: Whisperer In the Darkness

And you get 5 more tracks with 80 total minutes of audio. You can hear more at darkravengames.com.

In 2016, Darkraven Games launched a series of sound projects set in and under a possessed castle. They would be great for your fantasy adventures or for many of your horror adventures. The first project was called, "Manor of Madness". The second was called, "Descent Into Hell". And the third was entitled, "Descent Into Hell 2". This delivered a massive 33 tracks with over 8 hours of spine tingling sound for your fantasy table top games. The COMPLETE SET can be yours if you upgrade to the $119 set ($109 for early birds). Here are some samples of this awesome package:

Descent Into Hell - Sample 1: Tower of the Wailing Princess

Descent Into Hell - Sample 2: What Was That?
 

Descent Into Hell - Sample 3: The Zombie Undead

Descent Into Hell - Sample 4: Mummy Awakening

Descent Into Hell Sample - 5: Giant Insect Infestation

Descent Into Hell Upgrade - Sample 6: Catacombs

 

Darkraven's Dimensional Walker backer level (we should note that this has nothing to do with Diemension Games) drops a megaton of table top gaming sound on you to blow your friends away with. There are over 70 HOURS of sound here on 290+ tracks! Unbelievable!  If digital information weighed something, it would displace as much water as a fully loaded 50,000 ton pocket battleship. 

The products you will get for the low price of $279 (less if you act early) are:

1. Deep Madness Gold Edition - You get the gold Deep Madness package with 8 hours of audio and 18 tracks. 

2. Darkraven Fantasy Soundscapes - Colossus Edition. This is what started it all back in 2013. 17+ hours on 70 tracks (samples at our website).

3. Darkraven Science Fiction Soundscapes - Orion Edition. 19+ hours of SciFi sound on 76 tracks (samples at our website). This massive product includes "chapters" from starports, mining facilities, starships, cities, and more. Want to feel like you are living in the 25th century? Just pop on a few of these tracks and let them rip. We do.

And there you have it! The perfect gift for yourself or a friend to turn any adventure into something special. What are you waiting for? It's a click away from your hard drive.

The final two tracks should be out by February 2017 at which time we will package and send as a whole finished product to all backers.
