Custom Character Dialogue - Voice Actors Wanted!

For the last week we have been writing the scripts for our custom survivors and preparing all the necessary documentation for potential voice actors. Character dialogue has a huge impact on making the game enjoyable and serves three purposes:

  • Tactical information
  • Story development
  • character development

the Survivors narrate their progress, inform the players on what is happening and entertain us with their (usually comical) interactions. It's important that we provide an equally enjoyable experience, we need competent Voice Actors with their own recording equipment and the ability to work efficiently to deadlines.
We will work closely with you, developing the right voice and delivery of lines, of which there will be a couple of hundred per character. Fortunately most of these are very short, "grabbing pills!" for example.

If you go to our features page you can read this article which fully details each character, their personalities and what we want them to sound like. Much of this is subject to change if required, your creative input is valued greatly.

Send us your demo reel and if possible try voice some lines for the characters. Standard L4D dialogue will do, here are some examples:

  • "Grabbing Pills"
  • I hear a Boomer, watch out"
  • "Tank! Kill it kill it!"
  • "Let me patch you up, hold still"

The best thing to do is play the game, that will give you a good feel for how lines need to be delivered, especially in the thick of combat. You can contact me to discuss work on these characters on moddb or through our email address:

Near future updates

We've made plenty of progress in other areas too; updates that are coming soon will show our progress with the prisoner who finally has a name: Ryuji. We will also be showing off our new levels and music.

So add us to your watch list, you can also track our progress on twitter, our Facebook group and youtube page.

Thanks for reading and look out for more updates soon!


Are you guys relying on others to do your characters voice or can you lot do it if you have no alternative.

A bit of both, we are currently advertising for all 4 positions but there are people we know locally (and of course ourselves) who could also do the job. We would prefer to have an American voice the American characters!
