What's with the German voice actors?

posted by Lucleonhart on - last edited - Viewed by 674 users

Hey there!
Love to hear that you got such great voice actors for the english version of the game.
Now my question: Do you plan to have german voices, too? And if, any plans to get the original dubbers for that? (Sven Hasper & Lutz Mackensy)

Thanks! :)

    As with all of Telltale's games, there are no initial plans to have the game dubbed in any language. You may place your hopes on Daedalic Entertainment to get this translated and dubbed - the success of their present ToMI translated box set will probably be a good indication whether this might actually happen. If it does, which is unsure, it will likely be 2012 or very late 2011, and could not be done without Hasper and Mackensy. ;)

  • Well, this is not a general question, but i ask it anyway!

    i cant believe this sh*t myself, but i have to ask:

    Please Telltale, answer this!

    Has Telltale already found a german publisher to release this game? If yes, did they already a voice casting???

    Cause i found a strange post in the zidz-forum, where someone who "pretends" to be in contact with sven hasper (german voice of marty) quotes an email and in this "mail" hapser states that he had been asked about doing the job, already had an audition, but the money they offered him for doing the job was way below the standard-payment you get for dubbing a game-character.

    Please tell me the guy posted this is a jerk and this is all a hoax.

    isnt it kind of early to already have found a german publisher? i mean, the games not even released yet???! and they already did a casting?? cooomee ooooon...... this guy cant be serious

    Rest assured, that is a bad joke of a fake. If you were a professional voice actor, you'd never share information like that to the general public as it would SERIOUSLY damage your reputation. If you don't get offered enough money, you decline with a smile and forget about it. Secondly, with Hasper's education and job, serious orthography mistakes like mistaking article for conjunction would not happen ("dass/das" and certain other things; Hasper knows how to be articulate). Thirdly, the "Hasper" of the e-mail seems to assume that the German recording sessions were already done (and even TTG hasn't had the last english recording session). If translation was done in parallel to the English version, we'd have an announcement by now. Nothing, including the fact that the poster only posted twice, points towards authenticity. Don't waste sleep over this. ;)

    /edit: My apologies to this poster. Seems like his information was absolutely accurate. Gotta buy him a beer or something. :(

  • quoted you at zidz, i have to get this out of their heads. :D

  • @Vainamoinen said: That's OK. It's a cute poster, nonetheless. Strolls into that forum with his supposed "bomb" of new information, but only casually mentions it in his first post, desperately hoping that someone would inquire further, although he registered exclusively to post this. It's cute, somehow. But back to topic. ;)

    BTW, Sven Hasper confirmed the info (both to the admin of the BTTF-board and to myself), so there is something very fishy going on here... was it Daedalic? I don't know, and I won't ask him, of course.

    Now there's a trusted source, I'm sorry. If the German translation is already on the schedule, I simply don't get the marketing strategy.

    But I do pity the publisher for what will likely happen now, with the fanbase in Germany being just MAD about Hasper and Mackensy.

  • oh no, this is bad news. i hope its not atari again, as we all know they f*ucked up s&m2 big time.

    but deadalic? they always have good voice actors (norman matt for tomi) and they're making really good games, i cant image they are so stingy that they replace a well-know voice every fan expects just because of money.

    hmmm... maybe there's a third possible company we do not know about yet.... *playsxfilesmusic*
