With graphics nearly finished, I started tackling sound design today. We want the sprites to have a lot of character. The bland emulator voice we used for Powfish just isn’t working.
Wampus suggested I should record my own voice. I hate my voice. I said I’d only do it if he did it too.
Then we thought, why not ask YOU to do it? The more the merrier!
This is a small side project. We will be releasing it very soon for free, with no ads, for Android and PC. We can’t pay you. We’re not even paying us. Your vocal contribution is going to a very good cause, in that Chaos:Druids players will not be forced to listen to my boring, monotonous drone – or Wampus’s heavily caffeinated English gibberish – whenever any sprite in the game gets a kick in on its enemies. They could hear YOU!
I am hoping we will be able to use at least a phrase or two from everyone who sends us a recording, but it will depend on the number and quality of the recordings we receive. If any part of your recording is used, we will be sure to let you know so you can show off to your family and friends. If we can’t use it for technical reasons, I’ll let you know what those reasons are so you can try again.
Here’s how it works:
1. Within the next 48 hours, record the phrases sounds below. Please do add your own if you feel inspired!
2. Send your sound file to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is our list of phrases:
I smite thee!
Taste my steel!
You wot, mate?
I will taste thy blood!
I’ll bash yer head in, I swear on me mum!
To the devil with thee!
Kneel before your master!
You shall not pass!
I will drive thee out!
Fly, you fool.
Prepare to die!
You haven’t seen the last of me!
Oh, no you don’t!
Hey! Stop that!
Where do you think you’re going?
Leave this place.
Slap or punch noise
That’s it! We can’t wait to hear from you, and in the mean time we’ll be doing it too.
