And here comes number twenty! Created as a 'commemorative' video for a certain in-game anniversary that takes place on July 10th, "Incarnate" takes you all the way back to the beginning...

This video took a tremendous amount of work, not only in the creation of its special effects, but also in its concept development. A series of conversations with lead City of Heroes writer Hero 1 (as well as the novel WEB OF ARACHNOS) helped flesh out some of the events you see here, while the rest is my own unique interpretation!

It was tremendous fun making this, because I still just LOVE the opening and closing sequences. Also, the voice acting cast has now expanded to five! (The Sinclair Syndicate continues to thrive, heh heh heh.)

Two pieces of music by one of my favorite composing teams enhance this video - "Anticipation" and "Progeny", by Brand X Music. Once again transitioning smoothly from one to the other (thanks to some custom editing!), that sense of wonder, power, and raw energy just sweeps a listener along.

Like my other videos, this one is tagged as Samuraiko Productions, for those who follow my work. Enjoy!
