Logan Cunningham, known as the voice behind Bastion
narrator Rucks, is lending his pipes to an interactive radio drama for iOS, Codename Cygnus
. Developed by Reactive Studios, the project is seeking $11,000 on Kickstarter
by August 11 to fund more episodes in its story arc.
Cunningham's role in the story is that of the "first spy nemesis," and will deliver a "villainous speech" in the first episode, slated to launch this month. Each episode is expected to run between 15 and 20 minutes, "although the total playable content will be a lot more," the project page notes. Sarah Elmaleh (Skulls of the Shogun
, Gone Home
) and Chris Ciulla (Fallout: New Vegas
) are two of the 25+ voice actors that are also involved in the project.
offers a simple UI and voice recognition for listeners to audibly direct how each episode plays out. The project is currently sitting at $7,388 in funding with nine days left in the campaign.
