Voice acting underway!

We had a 9-hour marathon recording session on Saturday! Several of the actors voicing characters in Telepath RPG: Servants of God (specifically: Danielle Forrester, Marshall Stern, and Nancy Howland Walker, voicing Malis, Arman, and Mother, respectively) were in attendance.

Here is an exclusive pic of the session: :)

Danielle Forrester, voicing Malis.

    Cool! I look forward to having spoken dialog!

  • Lukas Fest

    I can imagine mother crying: “Save me Yawah!”

  • Danielle Forrester

    This was great fun to work on!

    I really, really don’t like voice acting in games. I think it’s because I’m Melancholic, which means that I prefer to keep to myself and dislike attention…voice acting draws a lot of attention and can be very disruptive and intrusive. (I tend to dislike console games for similar reasons) Plus, it’s kind of nice to imagine what tone the characters have in your head. That’s just my opinion, though.

    Maybe you could have an option to turn off the voice acting?

    Hey ChocoboFan, I was planning to! I know some players don’t care for voice acting. For what it’s worth, though, I’m committed to using good actors exclusively. ;) I have no intention of ending up on a list like this.

    Wasn’t Nancy the voice of the Shadowling Queen? She did a good job there. I also liked the voice of Tastidian too.

  • Craig Stern

    Indeed, she was. I’m glad you liked it. :)

    Will the voice actor of Tastidian return too? That intro realy hooked me into TRPG2 and the whole Telepath world. Maybe the new in-game voices will hook new fans like the old ones hooked me.

    Oh… my… GOD those were horrible.

    Personally, I like having voice acting, with the exception of the main character, because I like to imagine me speaking myself to the others characters.

    “Will the voice actor of Tastidian return too?”

    Ha ha! Um, that was me, actually. :P I have no idea if I’ll be doing any voice acting in TSoG–that depends on how many voice actors I can get, and if I’m short on any.

    I love voice acting. I think it makes a game much, much better. Don’t disappoint me now~ >:D

  • Lionlog

    sounds cool! i think it will make the game more unique and amazing

    is it possible to release some sort of teaser for this like a line or two for some of the characters id really love to hear what Arman sounds like myself
