Free voice talent!
« on: August 28, 2013, 06:42:59 PM »
Hello Arcen! My name is Jeff Hively, and I've been a fan of Arcen's games for a while, particularly AVWW 1 & 2, which I had a blast playing and logging issues for.

Being chronically underemployed for the long-term, I figured I should do something constructive in the meanwhile, so I'll offer my skill as a voice actor to you guys (for free!). Of course, I don't mean to step on Pablo's toes, as he does a great job, but I also know that providing voice-work for a full game can be challenging, never mind if you're also composing the music.

The first half is narration, a la an intro cinematic, and the second half is unit command acknowledgements. -- https://soundcloud.com/jeffrey-hively/arcen-games-demo

Thanks for listening!

Very impressive, and obviously we know who you are quite well given how often you are in the release notes. ;)

Let me get back to you on Friday or so, okay?  I think we could use you for some robot voices on Bionic, but right now I'm slammed.

Will do, although generally we don't accept stuff of this sort for free.  Anyway, I'll email you on Friday or thereabouts.  Thanks again!

Your "dirty job" demo is really impressive, also. You should check that out, Chris.
