Last week, Rise of the Triad was released, in which I play the roles of Taradino Cassatt, Ian Paul Freely, and the announcer for the game’s multiplayer mode!
You can hear a bit of my work in the introduction for the game:
Of course to hear all the crazy one liners and throwbacks to twitch shooters of the 90s, you’ll have to grab the game on Steam or gog.com. Not quite sold? How about this quick trailer I whipped up? Fair warning, with a game of this nature and heritage, there is a fair bit of language and violence. Okay, I’m being modest, there’s a ludicrous amount of language and violence!
So, we’re well into the new year and I have not yet made an update to chronicle everything that has come to pass in my world of voice acting. I’ll just claim that I’ve been busy, let’s go with that. There’s a lot of content I’m about to throw at you, so strap in and get ready to feast your eyes and ears on what follows!
Firstly, if you’ve been following Marauder Shields then you are probably already aware that Koobismo.com has launched as the home of all things related to Koobismo and the team of storytellers that join him, to bring you the conclusion to the Marauder Shields webcomic and many more productions in the future. As part of the launch you can check out the following video I narrated detailing the background of the webcomic that launched this little endeavor:
Speaking of narrating, I’ve added a new compilation video to the Voice Acting section of my site, featuring a few examples of narration I have done recently. You also watch that video here:
Wrapping up the list of updates, there have been a number of releases in the past two months that feature my voice in some capacity. Here are some of the more prominent features:
Marauder Shields: Episode 27, where I am introduced as the voice of Thane
Marauder Shields: Episode 31, where I narrate a codex entry on the infrastructure dilemma of Earth after the technological surge from the discovery of the Mass Relays
Things are really starting to heat up (as if they ever truly cool down) in the universe of Marauder Shields, culminating in the first of a two-part mid-season finale that is set to change the course of the greatest war the galaxy has ever known.
In Episode 39: The Debt, Part 1, I continue to portray Admiral Hackett, who makes a decisive call and rallies the United Fleet.
Over the past few weeks there have been a few audiobook releases for Marauder Shields; I predominantly play the role of the Codex Narrator (with the exception of Episode 24, where I also appear again as Admiral Hackett). You can check those audiobooks out at the links below:
That brings us to the latest release of Episode 30: The Protégé. Here, the eponymous character of the series, Marauder Shields (better known as Nihlus from Episode 21: Keys and Echoes), appears once again as we draw closer to the mid-season finale. This episode expands on the backstory first touched on in Episode 21, giving you pause to consider the series of events that have led up to this final confrontation–and leaving you wondering what comes next!
I teamed up with Balázs Kalocsai once again (see Pixelated Red Dead Redemption) to lend my voice to one of his amazing 8-bit stylized productions. This time I fulfill the role of Vesemir, the narrator for a mock trailer of The Witcher for Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum!
