If you've been following our progress, you've noticed there hasn't been much.
Unfortunately, that's because of a slew of reasons, one of them being that some voice actors have lost interest.
As such, we're giving this project a big push and opening a casting call for a bunch of major roles, the most notable being Cloud!
We'll be careful to avoid some of the pitfalls we've encountered in the past and we're going to be changing the way we do things to try and get this done ASAP.
First of all, we're going to switch from a scene based format to individual roles. That means everyone will be responsible for their own success or failure. The roles will also be more intensive in order for us to finish and to minimize the number of dropouts. So we'll be asking chosen voice actors to record 50 lines a week, 5 voice actors at a time (for a total of 250 lines per week). That's quite a lot but that means that people voicing roles will be finished with their roles in a matter of weeks instead of in a year. That way, if people only have to record lines for a month or so, there's less chance of them dropping out.
That sound much worse than it is for most characters involved however as you'll be receiving the whole game script when you're cast and NPC's and EXTRAS won't be up until 2-3 months so NPC's will effectively have 2-3 months to record between 50 to a 100 lines.
We'll ask people to record the set of lines we've chosen and mail them to [email protected]

People who want only to voice extras are welcome but we'll ask you to voice more than one. Backups actors will also voice alot of these as well as Minor NPC. There might be Minor NPC missing in the list above although we've tried to be as thorough as possible. Missing roles will be voiced by the VA's already in the project.
