The Legend of Xanadu Dub Project - Auditions Wanted
« on: April 07, 2017, 03:45:56 AM »

At last, the time has come. As of today, we are officially taking auditions for the Legend of Xanadu dub, as a part of the larger Legend of Xanadu fan-translation project.

If youíve been following the main project thread, you probably donít need much of an introduction and can head right to the character-list page. You'll find everything you need to know to audition there. For some background on the games, we put together a quick little blurb that you might enjoy reading here.

If you are interested in playing a part, fire away. As far as weíre concerned, the more auditions, the merrier, so please donít hesitate to try out for anything you think you might be able to handle.

The initial casting period will end May 19th.

Even if youíre absolutely certain that you canít play a part yourself, you can still do us an enormous favor by passing on the word to anyone in your community who seems like they could. There are literally dozens of roles to fill, and weíre going to have to cast our net as widely as possible in order to get good actors in all of them.

We even made this dorky little intro aimed at non-gamers to help you rope in your friends and family who otherwise would just be confused about what the heck this project is.

The fate of the translation is now in YOUR hands. Let's make this something incredible!

In the meantime, here are some pretty screenshots. and youtube videos of all of the voiced bits in Xanadu 1 and Xanadu 2. :mrgreen:

CAW for Lykos!  :mrgreen:

I've no acting skills or recording equipment worth a poop, but I'm excited y'all are getting so close to a completion (happy ending?).  Good luck to everyone with their auditions!

Wow, the amount of time and effort you put into the audition listing alone is impressive!  I kind of want to try out myself but I'm a bit overwhelmed by the sheer number of random characters!

Be careful folks ... if you haven't played the games yet, and you're not seriously thinking about auditioning, then you might want to skip reading the the Character List page, because there are some much-needed plot-spoilers in there to explain who the characters are.  :shock:

The other pages are worth reading even if you're not going to audition ... Esteban and SamIAm did a wonderful job on the website!  :clap:

I meant the details with like, age, pitch, speaking style and the like.  Lots of good info.
