'Neverend' Gets Delayed

by Rainier on Sept. 27, 2005 @ 9:03 a.m. PDT

In the world of brave knights and beautiful virgins there roams a lonely creature Agavaen - an ancient fairy with broken wings. Humans are afraid of her and despise her so she found her place among the thieves. It is not a fairy-like life but however... at least she belongs to someplace. Until a day when it all changes. Most of the thieves are gone as well as all the money and the drunk captain decides to turn his anger on her. It has to be mentioned that just before he died, he realised his mistake, but Agavaen stays alone again to step on her uncertain journey for happinnes in the magic world of Neverend.

The game was already planned to contain some voice dubbing, but D2D is taking extra steps to ensure that all 4,500 lines of in game text are spoken by a variety of voice actors.

"We are currently recording the voices to the 135 characters within the game," said Neil Cotton, Director at D2D. "Even the villagers that fulfil a tiny – and sometimes unhelpful - role will have their very own voice. All together there is just under 4 hours of voice scripting!"

Most RPG games will have some voice dubbing for crucial scenes or as an intro, but this new move by D2D will give gamers a fuller fantasy experience.

"It is a lot of extra work and although it will clearly add an extra dimension to the game, we will NOT be making the gamers pay for it! We won't be raising the retail price of £19.99. We believe that this shows how committed we are as a publisher to deliver great games at great prices!" Concluded Cotton.

The game will be released on PC DVD ROM, February 2006.
