Jon Myers from Earplay mentioned in ARC Applause in “The Future Of Voice Will Be Contextual Conversations And Interactive Experiences” how game design for devices like the Amazon Echo are the future: “…the Earplay skill provides people with interactive story-telling content—a sort of choose-your-own-adventure that echoes the halcyon days of radio dramas. The difference is that the skill allows people to play an active role in a dynamic storyline … just by using your voice.” Earplay created the interactive audio game for Eddy Webb’s “Pugmire”, in which I voiced the chatacter of “One-eyed Molly”, cat spy;) #gameaudio
I have been cast as the voice of Russian genetically enhanced spy “Zoe Komarova” aka “Skeeter” in the upcoming game “Spy DNA” by Shy Snake Games! Always a treat to play a human for a change, this will be a fun role to add to my voice acting portfolio. Free downloadable demo of “Spy DNA” available now on their website, and Early Access game coming soon! #vo #gameaudio
An awesome new article series by #gameaudio soundtrack superstar Megan McDuffee started this week for Video Game Music Academy, titled “Attack the Gap: Highlighting Women in Game Audio”. Very psyched and not just because I was one of the lucky ladies interviewed for the series;) Check out the first article today, and stay tuned for more episodes at VGM Academy’s website!
I love it when I can finally talk about a game I did audio for:)
Ink Blott Underground, originally released “Inklings”, a mini game packaged with World of Lexica via Amplify Education and Schell Games, has been released as a stand-alone app available on the iTunes Store. Ink Blott Underground was also featured as on the “New Apps We Love” section in the App Store this weekend!
I had a blast working on the sounds, music, and editing the creature vo (acted by the fabulous Ryan Hall) for this word puzzle game, and am happy to see that 3 years after it’s initial creation it is still making people smile! Inklings was the recipient of a Serious Play Award in 2014. You can get “Ink Blott Underground” on the App Store today! Watch the trailer on youtube and get more information on Touch Press Games.
I’m working on another opera with amazing folks? This is becoming a pattern;) I’m helping with a new Audio Drama and Musical/Opera based on Final Fantasy VI, creatively directed by fellow Materia Collective comrades Jeff Swingle and John Robert Matz with many more Materians on the team. “PROJECT ESPER is a fully licensed Musical Theatre/Audio Drama adaptation of the beloved JRPG Final Fantasy VI being produced in conjunction with the Materia Collective.”
