Press Kit

In Dark Storm,you play as Amber, a security officer working in a classified laboratory facility near the Alaskan border. It's your first week on the job when suddenly your lab comes under attack by an unknown assailant. Your main objective now becomes survival. Using elements from your environment, escape is crucial, and the odds are against you. However, Amber's story is only a small part of Dark Storm. Through episodic content releases, you can explore the whole Dark Storm universe, find out what secrets the government doesn't want to let out, and what your part in all of it is.

Sound Design

Next, we are planning on giving the VR Missions a cosmetic makeover. We are hoping the new look will create a more "designed-for-training" feel to it. Check out some of the new designs below:


The team is currently working on revising the transitions between executions and from 1P to 3P.
the current transitions are a bit choppy so this will help smooth things out.

In addition, enemies will have a chance to block or dodge your attacks.

Free Demo Coming

We've heard from some of you that you would like a demo. So next week we will have the first 3 levels of the VR Missions available to download for free. So be sure to check back!
If you can't wait or would like to support our team, please feel free to purchase the full VR Missions on Indiegamestand or Desura

Well, I guess I could just ask you what type of voices you need. So, what type of voices do you need? Any special characters you need voiced?

I can do a good Russian accent, but speak no Russian. American voice is natural, I can do both souther, and norther. I can also do a good Canadian accent, and a Sean Connery. Not sure what a scientist sounds like, though I am actually majoring in Chemistry and Biology.
