What makes a good VO for video games?
To produce quality game voice audio it’s important to be versatile. The emphasis is not only on being a voice over but more a voice actor. It’s about being able to do a range of character voices, foreign accents and plenty of emotes (grunts, groans and screams and my favourite breathing, laughing and crying), often in one sitting. In many cases one actor may be able to do a number voices, playing a range of characters, all within one video game instalment.
As a bilingual voice over artist I am able to speak fluently in both English and Spanish and I have a knack for accents from further afield. My narration style spans the spectrum from conversational to authoritative and everything in between. Variety is always the spice of life, so it’s important to have a good range of styles to work with. Having a versatile voice enables me to bring depth to a recording and ensure characters sound less two-dimensional.
What have I voiced recently?
Over the years, I have collaborated with many gaming clients covering a wide range of gaming voiceover needs. What I particularly love about this job is the variety it brings. I have a popular, versatile voice and have voiced children from as young as 5 years old to old grannies and everything in between.
Hyperstellar is a great mobile game and I am the space computer voice encouring you as you get higher and higher scores. In Glory to Mantielda I am the News Anchor trying to keep it all together. In Atom Universe I welcome you to the world of fun.
