The graphics on this episode are quite dated, but they get the point across. I have no current plans to re-do the earlier Delura episodes; I'd rather spend my time and energy producing better looking new content :)

Created with Lightwave 9.6, Flash CS5, Audacity, Ulead Video Studio 11


Aiden makes his way to the worksite he's assigned to. As usual he's running late, but something doesn't seem quite right today.

Hundreds of miles beneath the Tor planet's surface lies a place where TIMCO (Tanadrine Interplanetary Mining Company) has established large network of interconnected tunnels made to collect and process condensed energy crystals which are used to power everything from the smallest device to the largest of cities.

There are many challenges in regards to harvesting these crystals, however, as the energy they expend can easily disrupt any form of wireless communication. Because of this, no aspect of automation can be employed reliably... much to the delight of highly skilled professional mineship operators.


I love Delura. Originally saw it on Youtube.

I loved it. A little hard to follow visually, a little over-exposure, it would seem. But it still is good. I loved how the movie takes place in first-person, there truely isn't enough of those kind of videos or games. I look forward to Delura, Ep 2.

Tanadrine-Studios responds:

One advantage of 3d is that it allows you to play with the camera more without having to modify the artwork or do any "workaround" tricks. I like using first person to convey strange things or give a sense of unfamiliarity or confusion, though there's other places where i've used it in the series.

In this case, EP 001 is the only episode that takes place almost exclusively in 1st person, the rest of the episodes are mostly in third person view.

I love this series, it has so much charm despite the older episodes lacking in the visuals. The story really grips you as you watch more and more. I just love it.
I can't wait for it to develop further!

Tanadrine-Studios responds:

You're such a fanboi!

Looking forward to putting out EP 005.03 with your musical works in it... it will be the first time an *experienced* sound artist has applied their expertise to the Delura series.

I like this series a lot. It reminds me of ReBoot! :D
