Voice Acting?

posted by diewernerbrueder on - last edited - Viewed by 621 users

Will there be any voice acting in the game? There doesn't seem to be any in the Grickle videos and the shots we have seen so far from the game doesn't seem to have any audible speech. I will probably still get it even if it doesn't have, but I'd just like to know for sure.

  • I kind of get what you mean about his voice being too "young". His first office is expansive, has an impressive view and is painfully empty. I got the feeling that he was an older man, very introverted and slightly paranoid and fearful. The new office is cluttered, dark, below ground level and looks like a teen's basement bedroom. Coupled with his voice I get the feeling that Tethers is actually a young, cheery guy who joined the FBI to have "adventures" but has never really gotten the chance. He seems like more of an "everyman" who will be the easiest character to identify with, which is a great PC for a mystery game :)

    Of course he also sounds almost exactly the same as he did playing Kaysen in "Deadly Premonitions" but really, really different at the same time. That's pretty impressive, I think :)

    Also remember that "Grickle" is NOT just the videos! There is an entire collection of comics that also fall under the header of Grickle. These have a LOT of "talking" and have a different feel from the videos. I used ALL of Grahams collective Grickle work as inspiration.

    I highly suggest reading the comics as well. Also funny and darkly twisted but in an entirely different way!

  • Then i just seem to like the dark and silent side of Grickle, which is captured in the videos, more. Btw the other voices sound good, it's just Nelson sounding so nah...

  • I thinks he sounds different from what I expected, but that doesn't mean he sounds bad. Thinking about it, having a depressed person experience strange things, he'd probably be less likely to over react to them. An excitable, younger guy is more likely to get unnerved and scream his head off like the guys in Anable's flash animations :D

  • I just love the voice of Nelson. Really. I found it just Spot on. It's like the character was done for the voice and not the other way around.

    But, of course, that could be me also.

    I don't think so, actually you described it pretty good with slightly paranoid and fearful, and a tiny touch of depressed. ;O) But hey, i also don't want Charlie Chaplin talking in a movie, or Mr. Bean.

  • Yeah, but if he's a slightly paranoid and fearful guy in a town of slightly paranoid and fearful people he won't really stand out. And Charlie Chaplin actually had a beautiful speaking voice; I wish he could have made more talkies! :p Even Lon Chaney was amazing in his last film, "The Unholy Three". It's one of the reasons I like the talkie version better, along with Harry Earls great performance. His German accent makes him really hard to understand, but he's got a fantastic delivery at the same time.

    Anyway, a "silent" game would have been really interesting to play, but the voices do work, thankfully.

  • I feel like Ginny. The voice sounds perfect to me.

  • All of the voice acting in the trailer sounded wonderful to me.

  • I originally didn't want voice acting, but this trailer has changed my mind. The voice is pretty spot on, I'm glad it isn't dull. Can't wait.
