Job Description

I am the head of a company developing games for the blind and visually impaired community: Pb Soundscape.

The game that we are currently building is called Battle Crescendo, it is an action/strategy adventure set in medieval times. We are currently looking for a speaker voice for the game, a voice that will give the user all the necessary information to navigate in menus, change options, listen to the in-game help and so on. No acting is required, just simple narration.

The project is divided into two parts:

1. The game menus and prompts, about 600 words in total.

2. The instruction manual which will be included in the actual game, divided into different topics that the user can choose from. As of this time we do not know the exact length of the help text, but we estimate about 4 or 5 pages.

The listed budget is only for the first part, but if you audition for this please be
prepared to make little changes along the way in case something is modified, and also to record the help later on when it is finished. Of course, if any changes are necessary after the original recording is completed, you will be compensated accordingly for the extra work.

The reason we need a talent to record this first version of the script is because we have to have some material to work with while we design the game, to make sure that the voice and the music blend well together and so on.

You will not have to split the files, one long recording with short pauses between every phrase will be perfectly fine.

The game will not be sold in normal stores, it will only be distributed via our website at least as things look right now. We will need full buyout rights for these recordings, which is to say the right to use them for anything we like as long as they are associated with the game. There is also a great chance that audio snippets from the game will be broadcast on TV
and Radio which may or may not include your recordings, but they will still be a part of the production.


Here are some samples from the script that you can use when auditioning.

Only submit custom auditions; no generic demos please.

---Start of Script---

"You are currently running a demo version of Battle Crescendo, please consider registering."

"Please note, this game contains a lot of violent and graphic sound effects not suitable for all ages. It is not advisable for children under the age of 13 to play the game without parental approval."

"Use your up and down arrow keys to navigate through the menu, and press enter to select an option."

"Start adventure."

"Load saved adventure."

"Delete saved adventure."

"Speaker test."

"Options."

"Registration."

"Help."

"Exit."

---End of Script---
