I wouldn't mind taking a crack at "male narrator".  People tell me I'm pretty good at that.  I'll have to set my stuff up to record the VO for the next episode of my show, so I'll try to remember to do it then.

This is fantastic.  As soon as I can figure out how to get a good quality recording I'm going to audition for at  least a couple of roles.  Thanks for all your hard work!
Current want list:  Bomberman 93

Audition sent! :dance:

Thanks, you're officially the first one to send anything in!  :D

I'm not sending anything in until this snoterfall is done cascading out of the left side of my noggin...

The post at Kotaku is a good thing, indeed.

:)



More importantly, I am glad that this announcement has been generating interest in auditions.

Would anyone with a NeoGAF account be willing to make a post there on our behalf? Elmer and I have both tried registering there, multiple times in my case, but they're just so darned strict.

PM me if you're up for it.

I would but after 3 accounts, I'm not bothering making a 4th.

I'd leave them out of this project, personally.

It's all about exposure. If posting on a forum gets us one more actor, it's worth it. Those 50+ parts aren't going to fill themselves, after all.

Hit up Reddit and other outlets, Neogaf will pick it up on it's own.

I think you'll find people easier than you think, but of course time will tell.

I'd do it if I could.


Edit: Might have us a lady actor type person, woohoo

I wonder what the best reddit subforms for this would be?

I think https://www.reddit.com/r/TurboGrafx/ is the only one currently being updated daily.

I've asked my daughter if she want to try out a voice.
Her boyfriend has recording facilities.

Awesome.

The brutal reality is that we will probably be starved for actresses. We received thirteen auditions in our first day, and while we are always happy to get an audition from anybody, it's a tad alarming to see that every one so far is male.

I won't do this on other forums (much), but here on PCEFX...I shall repeatedly implore all of you to ask female friends and family if they would be up for participating in this. There are many female roles that are on the order of ten seconds of total talking time, and also that are ADPCM-based in the game, meaning that a high-quality microphone isn't necessary at all. I'm literally considering asking my mother and my sister if they would like to try a couple of parts, and I can't even believe I'm saying that.

This kind of community cooperation is probably going to be necessary for us to produce a complete dub.

Really awesome to see this project coming so close to completion after all these year! Getting auditions for the female roles was a problem with the Ys IV dub as well. We ended up getting a lot of our actresses from contacting people directly that I had heard in various fan projects at the time and even then some of the actresses ended up playing multiple roles, but even professional dubs often have actors/actresses play more than one part. I'm sure once more people hear about this project you'll start to get more auditions from actresses. Anyway, good luck guys and godspeed.

In my former life as a talk radio show host I was all about recording, but as I've gotten older, less technologically savy, and more anxious, I will wait to hear what the young bucks on this forum can do.

Good luck getting some ladies, may I recommend Tinder?

Can't wait to play!

Might want to promote the game on 4chan's /vr/ board. Plenty of Falcom fans there, though they tend to hate dubs.
