As we've said in the past, we think that the vocals are the most important part of the game. Okay... Maybe right after the artwork then. We had to make sure that the voices of the six main voice actors fit the character, but also fit rightly together as well. This really is a lot more difficult to do, than you'd think.
But we think we've managed to find the right mix. From Thomas' hyperactiveness to Richard's deeper tone. And we couldn't have done that without our talented voice actor cast. The voice actors we selected all have a lot of experience in the industry. From current popular games to cartoons and commercials. There's almost nothing they haven't done before.
Now, as this is a adult project we won't be announcing who they are, as it could negatively influence the amount of “regular” jobs they get after this. But if you listen carefully, you might be able to recognize them.
Okay... so we have the vocals... How will it sound in the game?
We thought about writing a lengthy piece about how the vocals would work and sound in the game itself, but then we thought "Why not just make a screen recording?"
So we did just that, and we're calling it "The unveiling of Thomas" (Because we're unveiling Thomas' voice if you didn't get that yet :P)
Here's the video...
As you can see in the video, we still have a lot of tweaking to do, but progress is being made everyday.
We're currently busy timecoding all the dialogues and making tweaks to the game code, but once that is done, we can finally release a new beta version. So stay tuned for the exact date.
