About

Hey there everybody, we are Norbert Kristof and Bernadett Horvath. Welcome to our Kickstarter project! 

We are looking to raise 8000 dollars to record a full length album and to create a classic adventure video game for your smart-phone or tablet. 

First things first, who is Norbert Kristof? 

Norbert is one of Hungary’s finest singer-songwriters, he mostly writes melancholic ballads and indie-rock tunes. 

What is our aim? 

Our goal is to create a music album and a video game, in a brand new environment in Los Angeles. 

Why Los Angeles? 

Norbert had chance to explore and visit the city a few times and always wanted to record and produce an album below those palm trees, plus the video game needs a lot of footage taken in Los Angeles. He also never recorded outside Europe, so it’s a first! This city will be the place where we are writing, arranging, and recording material for the new album, and we’ll finalize it in Hungary. Throughout the next months we'll be making videos and pictures to prepare ourselves to have enough footage for a video clip, a documentary about the whole thing and for the game. 

What about the video game and what the heck is a ‘Secret Sun’? 

We cannot really say what a ‘Secret Sun’ is because we would ruin the story but we can tell you that it will be a classic 90’s point and click adventure game with pixel-like graphics and a dark gloomy soundtrack. The lead character Norbert will be wandering around the world from Hungary to Los Angeles, until he reaches the Factory of Souls what’s hidden in the underworld and that’s where Girl Afraid will join in and do the rest until the final battle comes to place between good and evil, you know the same old story in a brand new jacket. 

Who is Girl Afraid? 

Girl Afraid is a fictional character in the video game played by our wonderful lead designer and photographer Bernadett Horvath. In the story she is a famous singer who lives in Los Angeles and we already recorded and finished mixing of her fictional album. It contains 4 tracks and it’s musically inspired by 90’s singers like Natalie Imbruglia. The name Girl Afraid comes from a song title by The Smiths. 

What do we need? 

Your support to help us make this album and video game happen.

What do you get? 

We offer 3 different music albums and a video game download. You can also have a hand-written postcard or for a higher amount of money you can be a part of the video game as a character or you can even have a song written only for you (one song from those will be on the actual album but all songs will be published on social media) All items include shipping in lovely hand-mailed packages all over the world.
