Skeletal Dance Party
Narrative Designer & Writer - Catalope Games AB, No Studio In Particular Ltd.
After becoming acquainted with the developer of 'Skeletal Dance Party', I was soon asked to help bring the project to fruition as the Narrative Designer, Casting and Voice Director and voice of Eek. As the Narrative Designer, I've constructed a full narrative and plot for the project, built a series of unique and likeable characters, produced extensive marketing materials, and written full scripts for cutscenes and incidental dialogue, for in-game inputs and voice recordings - and these responsibilities will continue into a series of planned expansions and potential sequels.
'Skeletal Dance Party' is a physics-based voxel adventure game developed by Catalope Games AB, in collaboration with No Studio In Particular Ltd, as a spiritual sequel to Catalope's viral 2016 freeware game 'Skeletal Dance Simulator' - the game is currently made for PC/Mac/Linux. It tells the story of Reva, a naive young necromancer who sets out on her noble quest: to hold the biggest, bestest Halloween party for all her reanimated skeleton friends! On the way, she'll make friends with a variety of interesting monsters and battle against the adversarial paladin, Bethany.
The game received a full release on Steam and other marketplaces on October 22nd 2018 to rave reviews and award nominations, with a number of expansions and epilogues already in the offing. It resurrects its predecessor's hypnotic dance-like physics with a complete narrative, compelling characters, and full voice acting. Teasers, sneak peeks and trailers are currently being shared daily to build a waiting pool of players to make 'Skeletal Dance Party' one of this Halloween's biggest hits!

"...one of the cool features this game has to offer among many others ... that will stay constant is the quirky humor throughout the dialogue."
"A very addicting cutey spooky dungeon crawler. Floppy Skele dancing is hilarious, Necromancy has never been so fun! Great witty dialogue brilliantly voice acted."
