Ravensdale, the cooperative "fuel fantasy" run & gun platformer from the creators of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, has revealed some heavy-hitting voice talent in the form of Mark Meer.
Or Commander Shepard, if you prefer. However, this is contingent on Black Forest Games raising $500,000 over the coming 23 days via their Kickstarter campaign. We've got a video interview with Commander Meer and more details below.
“Ravensdale will be an action-packed, run’n’gun-like game that encourages cooperative gameplay and is set in a fuel-powered garage-fantasy world.” Jean-Marc Haessig, BFG’s creative director explains. “Though it is still in early development, it’s a great opportunity for us to offer our community a first-hand experience of the development of a video game – through our Project Ravensdale Dev Blog.”
Adrian Goersch, one of Black Forest Games’ Managing Directors adds: “Last year we overachieved our funding goal on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams and we honored the trust our backers bestowed on us by delivering the game in time and on three gaming platforms. With Ravensdale we will ensure that trust and deliver an exciting game for our fans.”
Ravensdale looks like it could be a ton of fun, but in all honesty, I personally feel that $500,000 might be a worryingly optimistic target. Still, it's an exciting project, and it's time to vote on whether you want it with your wallet. Will you put your money where your mouth is?
