As huge fans of Elite Dangerous, it is always a joy to find quality content being generated by the community. My biggest complaint with Elite Dangerous is that it doesn’t have a compelling story – there’s a huge playground (well, space) and there’s lots of lore, but there isn’t a strong narrative to follow.
Enter DravenDarken on YouTube, with a YouTube video series called “DarkenSpace”.
DarkenSpace follows the story of Draven, a would-be pilot whose old life is ripped away, forcing him to embark upon a dangerous journey through the lonely galaxy. The first episode was released in 2015 and since then there have been 8 created.
The series is exceptional, featuring excellent sound design, professional-quality voice acting and engaging camera-work, despite the in-game restrictions.
Intrigued? Here is the first episode:
Watch the rest on YouTube. It’s some of the best fan fiction you’ll see.
