Recording vocals can be (relatively) easy. Recording vocals properly? Never. Not a thing. Oh, and nailing a high-quality voiceover for an entire video game? Tricky and time-consuming… at the best of times. Where to go then? Well, Wadjet Eye Games, having done recording sessions for a multitude of games, are undeniably an experienced (and dedicated) bunch.
Now, before you scroll down to the bottom of this article for that all-important link, note that we are not talking about a free service here. They are “less expensive than most alternatives” though. And in case that’s not enough to trigger consideration, this might help: project completion within weeks, not months, isn’t a rarity.
I’ve progressed from the method of “casting various friends of mine and recording on a cheap headset mic in my bedroom” to “using a casting director and recording in a swank audio booth studio in Midtown Manhattan.”
It isn’t just about speeding up the process either, as Wadjet Eye Games will also help pick the right voices for your adventure, filtering those that wouldn’t fit the bill. Given the typical complexity of this particular aspect, not having to search on your own is bound to prove beneficial. It sure beats having to settle for someone with a high-pitched voice for that big bad ogre antagonist of your upcoming project. An amusing mix, albeit likely not quite what the game needs and alternatives aren’t always plentiful.
