A GREAT VOICE-OVER ARTIST CAN BRING GAME CHARACTERS TO LIFE
Voice acting for video games provides a very unique working situation. The voiceover, or rather the voice over artist for video games, will often be asked to say the same sentence in numerous different ways to account for the numerous situations in which the player might hear those words. If they always sound the same, the gamer will quickly lose interest, feeling that the game is limited.
Every line of dialogue, every grunt and groan has to be vocalised and saved as individual files. It’s a process that can take hours, and it’s important that the voiceover be able to give as much energy and enthusiasm to line 100, as they did to line 1.
Naturally, the ability to voice multiple characters and give them their unique personality is important. Your voiceover artist for video games needs to be able to truly ‘become’ their character, so that everything they say feels natural and in no way contrived.
Game characters have evolved, and many mainstream characters like Sonic and Mario now have their own TV series. It means that gamers are relating to characters on a whole new level – they’re not just pixels on a screen any more – they’re living breathing characters about which we truly care, so it’s important for the voiceover and the video games voiceover services that you opt for to tie it all together and make it feel real.
