Job Description

We are making a video game for the Wii called "Rage of the Gladiator". It is a fantasy fighting game that takes place in an arena where you control a gladiator (with a weapon and shield) and fight various opponents.


This character is a Beholder, which is a fantastic monster. See the attached picture for an idea of what he looks like.

He has many eyes and therefore he sounds like multiple people talking at once when he communicates. He communicates using telepathy. You hear his voice when you see him, but his mouth does not move.

Voice: Adult Male, fairly deep voice Monstrous sounding voice Age is pretty flexible, probably Young Adult or Middle-Aged is best

The challenge for this is to make his voice be somewhat synthetic. You will need to modify your voice using some software to create this effect. When he speaks, it should sound almost like multiple people talking together. The closest voice analogy is the Borg from Star Trek.

If you can create something that sounds like the Borg, then that perfect! An echoing type of sound might also help, to have it sound like multiple people are talking when he communicates He is superior to you He thinks you are insignificant He refers to himself as We He is evil, and wants to kill you He's very determined and confident

Audition Lines:

What’s this? We smell a human!

We shall destroy you.

Die Insect!

Also, please provide at least one example of a gutteral sound that the Beholder would make when he is attacked and gets hit by the player's weapon. For example, "Argh!" or "Oooh!"
