Voices

| | 1 comments

So I'm back from a trip to the US to record the voices. Actually I sat around the back of the room while everyone else worked and occasionally chirped in when there were questions or they had missed stuff from the script. Basically I was the backup to make sure we got it all and got it right. With our great voice director and Engineer I had an easy job.

Previously I mentioned that I was really happy with the actors I picked for the voices. I'm pleased to say that they were even better when it came time to read the actual dialog. I've only ever done two weeks of recording voices but in the couple of dozen actors I'd seen work previously they BK group really outshone them. They were a real pleasure to work with too. I've decided that I'm going to HAVE to do another BK game soon just so I get to work with these folks again... for reals.

Oh yeah and there's nothing cooler than hearing words you've made up like "Noink" and "Falterdan" spoken in dialog. Awesome plus!

The team is feverishly working away on the game and it's looking and playing amazing. Those guys and girls astound me every day with their enthusiasm. I absolutly love working with them.

OK that's enough gushing from me. I need to get stuff ready fro the proper BK trailer. In the meantime here's a pic of my real life Skiffy.

Hey all. I figured it was about time I posted something here since this is the site for you know, my comic and game.

First up, a quick welcome to all the new people reading and welcome back to everyone else. Hope everyone likes the updated version of the comic – it was something I did in the down time when I didn’t have enough brain power to work on new pages back when I was working a certain Star Wars game. Oddly I’m far busier now working on BK but it’s actually 10 times more fun and that’s coming from a huge Star Wars Fan.


So you’re also probably wondering why there’s not much info on the game here yet. It’s coming but making the game takes higher priority. Look for a new trailer, screenshots and info over the next month.


Lastly I’ve completed all the scripts for the all the games spoken dialog and am in Los Angeles to record the voice actors which is pretty exciting. I had to go through around 480 audition tracks to pick out just 7 main characters. There were an awesome number of really great voices to choose from and it was a real challenge to pick out the voices that nailed what I have in my head for the characters. I’ll talk about that more at a later date.

For now though enjoy the comics and please check back again for info on the game.
