Sundered – The concept

It all started in the fall of 2015. This Sundered world is a prog-metal album, a novel, and now I got it in my mind to write this Interactive fiction game with it. Oh, I almost forgot. What say ye of a graphic novel? Huh? Actually, graphic novel might be a maybe. i love the idea but shit, there are only so many hours in a day so that is a loose thread as of yet. the game is related to the novel and takes place in the same universe, but is unrelated in every way from the novel so playing the game will produce no spoilers.

So that is why i set up this page from the start. This game in progress will be playable at every step of the way but there will be little to do to start with. We meet Gabriel. We meet Bird. And we get to know the world in a typical Interactive Fiction condensed fiction fashion. So, if you are interested in following the building of this game, come back every now and then to see what Gabriel is up to and what he is capable of.

Before you click on the link above to play the game, you may want to start this player. “This Sundered World” is as you may guess the title track for the music album under production right now by the brand new band “Icarus Machine”. More information on that is upcoming. Enjoy, as more stuff will come along and fill this game and this page with interesting stuff.

Excerpts from the actual game play. Including work in progress fuckups coming up as there is more gameplay to draw from.

JennyK and this sundered world – What’s happening?

It’s a new year. Now, let’s do it all again.

And so much more. This is my first post on Studio Chaotic since July of last year and I have no good excuse for that. But it has been busy and many things have come my way that I will tell you all about. But it will be in bits here and bits there. I am working currently on an album on
Kompoz.com
It is a blast, I get to write lyrics, and sing my heart out. Along with various other collaborations on Kompoz it fills my days. I will post new music right here, right shortly.

Instead of talking myself blue about what I’m doing, let’s see what’s immediate and current while getting a sneak view on what we are doing and where it’s at. So listen to Bill. And, if that drummer is you? Come talk to us on Kompoz.

Be awesome, happy, and always supplied with coffee.

Jenny, Bill, and Jordi

Lyrics

This death of mine leaves me unsatisfied
But the darkness inside me is moving
and the thing that is me, the thing that was me
You burned my ass but don’t you worry
Don’t you worry
I won’t hurry

You burned my ass but don’t you worry

My body makes no sound down there in the ground
Where you laid me down
But you pray
You pray that I’ll stay
Dead, dead, dead, dead
Don’t you worry, i won’t hurry
I just bide my time
I bide my time
Cause my body makes no sound

This cold cold heart leaves me
Hungering, craving
There comes a day
There comes a day
Your flesh and your blood will satisfy me
This thing that was me
This thing that is me
Dead
You burned my ass
Dead
But don’t you worry, don’t you worry

My body made no sound as you lay me down
Into the ground and now you’re praying
My body made no sound as you lay me down
Into the ground
And now you’re praying I’ll be staying

There was a time
A life I can’t recall
But there must have been
I must have been

Reaching out from a flaming pire
A life tainted by lies
Chastised by fire
Screaming from out of endless punishment
A life broken by faith
Twisted by your beliefs

Then I left that pain
I left that life behind
But I’ll never forget
Dying

Your body makes no sound as I lay you down, Into the ground,
And you’re praying
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down, into the ground
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down, into the ground
There’s no time in hell
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down
I’ll see you around
Into the ground
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down
Hush now
Into the ground
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down
I bide my time
Into the ground
Your body makes no sound

Thanks for listening.
JennyK, Gemini, and Vincent at Kompoz.

Lyrics

(I really don’t have time for this so, make it short and wake me up when I’m done. Thanks.)
 
 All the time. What happened to all of the time.
All the tomorrows I had lined up in my mind all turning to yesterdays wasted time.

Here we go.

I give you all of my days.
And every night I pay.
And when the morning comes.
Leave me alone.

(There’s nothing wrong with me. Honest.)
(Let’s hear it.)

And all the love,
(Ah yeah, maybe.)
what happened to all the love.
(Yeah, well.)
All of the fantasies hot to the touch in my mind.
(If you don’t ask, I won’t tell.)
All turning to silliness and naked crying.

What do I want?
I’ll tell you what I want.
(Yeah.)
I’ll show you what I need.
And if the morning would come, leave me alone.

(Yeah, that too.)
(For fucks sake.)

Lock up, close your eyes.
(it’s not getting any better.)
Now now, I’ll find my way.
(Seriously.)
Hold on, there’s still some time.
(Are we done yet?)
Wake me up when I’m wasted.

Hold on, I will sleep when I am gone.
Let them gnaw on my old bones.
Wake me up when I’m wasted.
Never mind that.

(Let’s just get wasted.)

I’ll tell you all my fears.
I’ll give you all my tears.
If telling drives me insane, leave me alone.

(Wanna break something break it good and hard. Good job.
Are we done yet?)

Lock up or leave, wake me when I’m done.
Take what you need, wake me when you’re done.
Maybe that’s what I need, wake me when it’s done.

(Are we done? We are done.
Pull that plug will ya? Now get the fuck out of here.)

A belief is a thought you keep thinking

Abraham Hicks

Transcript

A belief is a thought you keep thinking.
At any time you can choose another thought.
And you can make that into a belief.
A habit is a belief is a thought you keep thinking.
You can change a thought so you can change a belief so you can change a habit.

That is in your power.

That is in your essential power that is you.
You, your spirit, your soul, your god, your faith.
Your thoughts.
It’s all you.
And nothing is more important than you. And if you feel… good.
You know that it is right.

A belief is a thought you keep thinking. A habit is a belief is a thought you keep thinking.

Change your thought; change your life.

You are, in fact, the centre of the universe.
And that is the fact of life.

You can live the life you want. You can live your dream. You can be happy.
You can be utterly joyful, blissful, happy. If that is your choice.
You can be healthy, strong. You can be everything you want. If that is your choice.
If that is your joy. If that is your bliss. There’s only one catch.

You can never go back. You can never even for a second go back to what you think is real.
Because it’s not, not anymore.

What is real is now. Any other reality is irrelevant, is unnecessary.
If you bring it forward; that bad thing that happened, that thing that was so real… before; it will be real again.

Because by choosing to bring it forward… you choose to live it again.

It’s your choice. Do you want to live that again? Do you want to keep living the so called real life that you’ve been living for so long?

No.

You want to live now. And now changes everything. Because what you are now will be what you are later.

You can choose your thoughts.

A belief is a thought you keep thinking. You can change your thought.
That is in your power. And your power is endless, unlimited…

Pure, positive energy.

The Dorks – Right minds left – A Kompoz collaboration release – Honky Tonk

Right minds left

And how did this happen?

Artist’s Notes
(By Project creator Kim Noble)

How The Dorks came into existence—the behind-the-scenes story:

Starting with two lyricists who have a bit too much time on their hands, Tracy led the charge in creating some lyrics that jumped off a hilarious page
and kept the project going with his tireless finesse! But neither of us could have ever imagined that James Fraser from the grand UK country and Jenny
Brennan from the even larger country of Canada would ever take this to such a level that left Tracy and I speechless… and that is quite a feat. Adding
in a chorus of fun crooners like Dave Scheuner (California USA) and Jerry Eriksson from Sweden, well, you’ve got one entertaining tune that left us all
rolling in the aisles. And, since Jenny’s mixing skills will leave you wondering if we really are all together live… let’s put it this way… none of
us will ever tell. 🙂 We truly hope you enjoy this one-of-a kind tune and be sure to be on the lookout for the revival of The Dorks coming to a SoundBlend
arena near you! 🙂

Artists notes

How did this happen? Really? 😀
(By co-producer, mixer, Dork JennyK.)

I don’t know. Some how I got sucked into a space time warp engine and got chucked out in an alternative universe where JennyK mixes spoon, mandolin, and cowbell. Was it possible?

Well, it happened. And it’s one of the most entertaining songs I’ve worked on. It’s a lesson in audio editing and mixing that I’ll never forget. I nearly killed myself laughing when I realized what a jug track was. The Dorks are real! The Dorks will be forever awesome and I’ll be there for the revival. Thank you thank you thank you very very very very much.

Lyrics

Some people say we’re two of a kind

And that we’d quite agree.

I’m yin, he’s yang There’s no denying

She’s peanut butter; I’m jelly.

The truth about all of this show

Is to set the record straight

We’re the type that’s clear to see

To separate us would be a mistake.

CHORUS:

We may not be in our right minds

But it’s the only minds we have left

We may not be the thinking kind

It’s something you’ll have to accept.

When your bulb is not that bright.

There are few thoughts to regret.

We’d like to sing another line

But this is all we have left

Verse

Our mamas separated us at birth

The years completely froze.

We lived our lives in disarray

Until we found Kompoz. 🙂

So now we celebrate this truth

By writing down the rest

We call on you Our fans so true

To sing our Right Minds Left
