Helldorado (2007) is another Italo Western RTT game developed by Spellbound Entertainment and an unofficial sequel to Desperados 2: Cooper’s Revenge (2006). Initially, it was supposed to become a Desperados 2 add-on, but in the end, it got extended and published as a game on its own.

The story of Helldorado ties in seamlessly with the final cliffhanger of Desperados 2: Cooper’s Revenge in which Doc McCoy gets kidnapped. Now, John Cooper and his friends are extorted. Following the instructions of the kidnappers they uncover the full dimension of the intrigue Lester Lloyd Goodman (aka Angel Face) has been involved in. They realize that this intrigue is not just of local, but of national interest.

My contribution to this project has been:

  • narrative design (together with Jean-Marc Haessig who has been the Creative Director of Spellbound Entertainment),
  • character design,
  • all spoken and non-spoken texts including all cinematics, dialogs and conversations,
  • managing story production,
  • German casting and voice direction (together with Ralf Adam who has been the Executive Producer of the project),
  • booklet texts.

German samples of my work on this project can be found browsing the work samples category.
