The lands of Arafinn are afflicted by a smoldering conflict that outlasts hundreds of generations. When the North fell, Nangrim, home of the Stonebeards, soon got overrun by the invaders. Now - centuries later - it is the player’s quest to discover this forsaken place and reveal the secrets buried in the cold depths of Nangrim.

Return to Nangrim is a first-person fantasy adventure with RPG, survival and puzzle elements. The game involves exploration, research, tool and weapon crafting, epic puzzles and defense strategies in order to unveil the secrets and story of Nangrim.

During his journey, the player will find books written in a runic scripture that provide information, story, and hints. In order to be able to read those books, the player must learn to translate those runes. To do so, he is given hints for example in the form of translated fragments, which over time and with additional research, allow translating the ancient language of the Stonebeards.

Entering the deep mines of Nangrim.

We will record the dwarven song The Mountain Throne in Hilduìr, the dwarven language in Arafinn. To do so, we are putting together a virtual choir of community members. The result will be a video that audibly and visually presents the song with everyone involved in a collage. Your journey to the soundtrack starts here.

The song is divided into solo parts (verses) and parts sung by the whole choir (chorus). Anyone wishing to apply for a solo part can simply submit it (and name it appropriately) along with the rest of their track. There will be a separate upload folder for the solo part tracks. We will listen to all of the solo tracks and decide which will be used in the final song. The choral parts will all be included when complying with the submission rules.

Submission Rules

  • The submitted track must be voice isolated, so use headphones while recording your voice
  • The track should be exactly as long as the provided template
  • As mentioned, we want to put together a collage showing the members of the choir singing. So, if you want to be seen in the video, submit a video of you while recording, along with your track
  • The file format should be: WAV (16bit or 24bit and 48khz). If that’s not possible, MP3 or MP4 works fine as well; the file can be converted afterwards
  • The file should be named as follows:
    • Choir: surname_name_choir.wav
    • Solo: surname_name_solo.wav
    • Video: surname_name_video.mp4

Thanks! There's no exact release date. But it will be somewhen in 2020. Of course, it will be playable without a VR device on flat screens.
