I'm currently in the process of working (beginning to..) on a new project for Descent 3. I know that it isn't a Freespace project, but this is the only place I know that provides useful information regarding voice acting - and the Descent modding scene is very small by comparison, so it's difficult to find voice actors over there. And I know that the two games have shared a common fanbase over the years, as many people tend to crossover from each game. I have various needs for each part, some of which are vital to the story and others which are just tiny parts with a handful of lines. Here is some information on the places that need to be filled. Large / Significant Parts
Commander Lee - This part has the most lines, featured in every mission and briefing. For this part I need a male actor who is either middleaged or can pull off a convincing middle-aged voice. Should be quite a defined, deep voice. Commander Lee is the main good guy who commands an Orion class carrier. Yes, the Orion is homage to Freespace, despite being a different design.
General Lucia - This is a very specific part and one of the villains. For this particular role, I need a womans voice who sounds like she may have come from a posh city. British accent is a preference. Not a big part but requires a good voice.
Fighter 1 - While no name is mentioned, this is a large part for most missions. Looking for a male voice actor to play this veteran pilot role.
Fighter 2 - Should be female (if possible) to play the part of this relatively young, inexperienced pilot.Smaller Parts
Deimos Carrier - Commander of a carrier, should be male in the middleaged range. Appears in two missions.
Victory Destroyer - Commander of a powerful destroyer. Appears in two missions.
Merchant - Looking for a good British/Australian cocky accent for this civilian merchant character.
Captain Drake - Male cruiser captain.
Captain Braka - Small part for a cruiser captain.
Bomber Pilot - A veteran voice, male.
Assault Cruiser - Male or Female for this unnamed part.
Escort Cruiser - Very small part.
Station Commander - Simple one line part.
Computer Voice - Again, a one line part.
Nibiru Carrier - Small part for a carrier commander role. Male.
Centaur Carrier - Similar with the above. Male or Female.
Scout - Very small and simple part.EDIT:
Note that not all parts are listed, some 1-3 line parts are also available but I usually double up the small parts to a 'medium' sized part for those.
If you have voice talents that you'd be willing to lend, please contact me at [email protected]
- Please leave some details about what characters you would be interested to play, and some samples of your previous works is a must. Samples should be unedited with no sound effects or alterations. Keep in mind I may pick a different role for you based on how your voice sounds. Thanks!
