Producing audio dramas like Declaration has been a dream for this team for a long time: bringing our dystopian Sci-Fi universe to life in vivid detail is something we love doing.

This project has also given us the exciting opportunity to work with a larger cast, bringing an ensemble of characters to this story than ever before. The team we have assembled includes a lot of extremely talented people, who are all working hard to bring this project to life. 

Together, we have produced an audio drama with vibrant, realistic group of characters and an epic short story…

And we're offering it to you for just £1!

(Because we don't want anyone to miss out!)



Declaration is a full-cast audio short set in a pivotal moment in the Consortium's history - when the Humans of the Consortium go to war with a bug-like race of aliens.

A disastrous First Contact takes place, killing many of the leaders of the Consortium. This leaves the responsibility for leadership in the hands of Hai-Xang Hayden, a rich girl who has no interest in anything but having a good time.

Want to learn more about the Consortium?

  • It’s a full-cast Audio Drama with four main characters and several cameo roles!
  • It is a standalone story set in a dystopian Sci-Fi universe!
  • The full Audio Drama is slightly over 15 minutes long.
  • It has been voiced by a cast of seven professional voice actors.
  • It will be delivered in .mp3 format.

£1 gets you the Digital Version of Declaration: The Bug War #1

£10 pledged will mean you are sent the Digital Version and the Paperback book of the script!

£40 is a huge amount of support for the project, and we will thank you by giving you a Producer Credit, as well as various Extras (such as the Blooper Reel and the main Theme) and the Paperback Book!

There are also several limited edition rewards, so check the list to the right!

Risks and challenges

Shades of Vengeance has run over 40 Kickstarters over the last 5 years.

We've not always been mistake-free, but we have delivered on every project which funded, and usually beat the delivery timescales we commit to!

We're confident we can deliver this project on time - our recent audio drama, Radio Free Taranis, was delivered 2 months ahead of schedule!

We will keep you informed if there are any delays, as well! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out via messages or comments.
