I've loved playing video games since I was a kid. My first computer was an Atari ST 1040 and I remember spending hours and hours playing games like Lemmings and Dungeon Master. Later I moved onto Sega Mega Drive (Shout out to Tails! Sorry Sonic, but he was my fav.), and then eventually PC and Xbox.
It was on PC that I discovered the RTS Command & Conquer in about 1996. I know, I'm showing my age, but it had something that I'd not experienced in a video game before...Voice acting!
Before C&C it was mostly just bleeps and bloops, but now the character I was controlling could talk, they responded to my actions verbally and had personality. There were cutscenes with real actors and it was like the worlds of film and game had just collided. It took the experience to a whole new level of realness for me and I was instantly hooked.
Things have come a long way since then. I've played some amazing games with awesome voice casts over the years, and I believe it was the voices behind the characters that made those games so great to play. If you've ever tried to play a game with the sound on mute you'll know what I mean!
So, because of my love of games and voice acting here are four demos I've recently written, voiced and produced myself. All in a style you could expect to hear in a fantasy RPG game or animation. Maybe I could help bring your next character to life!
