In conjunction with Petersen Games, Darkraven is pleased to share with you the current status of the Cthulhu Wars THEME SONG! Our very best musician has been slaving away at this. Even though the theme song does not fund until we hit $12,000, his enthusiasm for the project has gotten him to give us a glimpse of what the first 90 seconds of the piece might sound like. It's a dark piece. Something that Dracula would cozy up on a couch and listen to, high in the Carpathians on a dark, winter's evening. Does Dracula play Cthulhu Wars? We think he does. Hahahaha...

The Experience is a hand crafted audio experience infused with musical touches to bring your Cthulhu Wars Apocalypse to life. At launch, the Experience is a 60 minute long "seamless superloop", meaning that if your PC or play device can handle it, when it gets to the end, it will start over again and it will sound like it did not end. At Darkraven, we love crafting these experiences to turn your gaming nights up to 11 out of 10. Here are samples of what you can expect.

1) The Awakening of Nyarlathotep sample from "Cthulhu Wars - The Experience". This is an extended sample without stamps! Feel free to share with your friends! They can enjoy it with their games tonight! Send them on over to our Kickstarter. We think they'll like it!

2) The Doom That Came to Sarnath

3) Cthulhu to Tundra sample from "Cthulhu Wars - The Experience"

4) Hastur and Tsathooggua transition from "Cthulhu Wars - The Experience"

5) Black Goat to Nyarlathotep Transition from "Cthulhu Wars - The Experience"

MORE SAMPLES COMING!

As you can tell, the experience is an awesome experience in and of itself! But we have an extra treat in store for High Priest backers! We will be layering selected music tracks from Darkraven's "Shadows of the Mind" and "Return of the Old Ones" to help add an extra layer of amazing feeling to the experience. Creating a whole new Cthulhu Wars album of music is a possibility, but we need to hit a serious stretch goal to do this. Until then, here is one sample of what we plan on doing! We know you'll find it ever so creepy!

1) "Black Goat to Nyarlathotep" Sample from Enhanced Experience with Shadows of the Mind music layered in for extra effect.

2) "Hastur to Tsothoggua" transition. Sample from Enhanced Experience with Darkraven's existing "Shadows of the Mind" music layered in for extra effect.

Risks and challenges

Darkraven has done around 20 audio projects for games. Other than one project which we learned a TON from, and another project was delivered to customers late because the game partner responsible for distribution themselves was slow, we have delivered almost all on time. In case there is a problem in delivery, please contact us at darkravenhelpdesk@gmail.com. One of our fabulous pixies will take care of you as soon as pixily possible.
