Remember FMV (Full Motion Video) games from the 90's? Well, that's what The Dark Side of the Moon will be, but brought up to date with today's technology.

It will combine the mechanics of a quality FMV game along with the point and click aspects of a great adventure game. Add to that a handful of quick-decision moments which will affect the path the character takes, meaning the game will have multiple outcomes.

The game is being solely produced by myself, of Tayanna Studios. I'm a one-man band trying to make a pretty good game.

The script is in place, the main characters are ready, and the cameras are already rolling, as you'll see from the campaign video above. I'm hoping to have this all done by June/July 2019, and it will be released on Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iOS. Hopefully, depending on its success, it will be released on the PS4 and Xbox One.

However, to produce a full quality product, I will need funding to invest in more professional and suitable hardware such as film cameras, sound and lighting equipment. I'll also be able to hire out more locations and if the stretchgoals below are met, I'll even be able to hire other actors, including Larry Kenney, Lion-O from TV's Thundercats, who's already in talks with me and is ready to go, to perform a voice-over cameo within the game.

Well, without giving too much away, The Dark Side of the Moon will be an interactive thriller/mystery.

After waking up one morning, Dean, the single father of his two children, discovers that they've both vanished throughout the night. The race is on to find his children but he's in for some out of this world surprises when he delves too deep into the mystery.

Are there secret bases on dark side of the moon? Do aliens actually exist? If so, have they taken Dean's children? If so, why? 

As mentioned above, to be able to commercially release The Dark Side of the Moon, it will need to be shot with professional broadcast-quality cameras, studio-quality sound equipment and decent lighting, all of which can cost a pretty penny unfortunately.

In regards to risks, the only one, apart from if I actually got abducted and taken to a secret base on the moon, would be the deadline. However, I'm confident that I can meet the June 2019 deadline.

This is my second campaign and my first campaign was released on time, as promised.

Your pal, Darren.
