Futhark - Teaser

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This is the intro for our next game called Futhark. I'ts inspired by the rune section of Havamal from the Poetic Edda. English translation of the Poetic Edda used in the intro is done by Henry Adams Bellows.

Voice is in Old Norse/Icelandic since that is the language of the original Poetic Edda.

The sound has gotten a major overhaul and a new voice actor has stepped up and makes the intro truly his own.

So you are familiar with the Poetic Edda I see.... thats cool :D


Please dont summit intros.

Pretty cool

that was pretty cool, only thing i really have to say is that there was too long of a pause in between each sentence, it was a little tiring waiting so long for the next thing to be said, other then that i liked it, i like that you used the different language it sounded cool, can't wait to see what the game is like

fiddi responds:

Thanks Zerik1.
The timing issue you point out is really appreciated. English isn't our native languge so It's a bit hard to gauge how much time is needed for each sentence to stay up for reading purposes. We'll look into shortening the wait and let the text flow better.

for a demo good

this is a demo right because frankly i thought this was boring there wasnt much going on and the voice quality was a bit rubbsh not good is what i think even for a demo

fiddi responds:

Thanks for your input reeceyboyo.
It's an intro to a game we are working on. The reading/voice is in Old Norse/Icelandic since that is the language the original Poetic Edda is written in and is supposed to set the mood.
We'll however look into improving the voice quality.
