Dirk Maggs Other Audio Work




Since Romulus and Remus had a punch up over their new-found land, the Romans’ lust for power was second only to their cruelty,

greed, and all round bad behaviour. Plus the award ceremony for the rottenest Roman of all time. OK so they invented central heating and straight roads. So what?




Joan of Arc wasn’t the only heroine of the middle ages. More axe-wielding ladies with a taste for chopping more than parsley. Plus tales of silly chivalry, and joust a minute.




Mostly lootin’ and putting the boot in, with the occasional pause for sagas of wicked dwarves and stupid giants. Plus a Blue Peter style introduction to battlefield first aid.




The ghastly truth about evacuation, gasmasks, and sweet rationing, the mystery of the missing chocolate bar and the strange tale of the hairy monster of the blackout that turns out to be a….aaaaaaaaaargh. A good link is HORRIBLE HISTORIES



Comments by Dirk Maggs

The Horrible Histories books are a big hit in the UK for kids. The production company needed to get a big sounding show out of limited studio time so I recorded the voices cold and then took the takes away to edit, tracklay sound effects and mix. The results are suitably epic - I hope!



Broken Sword III: The Sleeping Dragon

Dirk is the voice director for this adventure game which has been produced by

Revolution Software

This is from Revolution

Broken Sword – The Sleeping Dragon is Revolution’s most ambitous project to date. The idea was first discussed back in 2000 and it was clear from the start that the game would have to be both bold and radical to be a worthy successor to its forebear, Broken Sword – The Shadow of the Templars. To this end, BS-TSD represents a mix of old and new. Central to Broken Sword are the themes of conspiracy, historical mystery and, of course, George and Nico and an epic quest for justice. From the beginning, Revolution’s goal was to introduce Broken Sword, and adventure gaming, to as many players as possible. To do this we have developed a game that will exploit the capabilities of both modern PC’s and consoles. Recognising that half of all BS1 and BS2 players were PSOne gamers, BS-TSD will be fully optimised in terms of graphics and interface for PC, PSTwo and XBOX.

Broken Sword – The Sleeping Dragon will release for PC, PSTwo and XBOX November 2003
