I got a role on "Flare"! Anyone else?


A little while ago, our own unbelievably hot Colette posted an article about the upcoming independent game Flare, stating that the developer was also looking for voice actors, artists, writers, and so forth. Well, I'm not trained in graphic arts and I'm no writer, so I sent in a demo MP3 for whatever role he wanted to give me. (I would have been mildly upset if he had chosen me for one of the women, obviously, but who am I to criticize? Frank Oz was the voice of Miss Piggy, for crying out loud!)

I just got an e-mail with an NDA (or a "FriendDA" as he called it) congratulating me for getting the role of hero #2!

From his e-mail:"I'm very happy to say that I've accepted you into the Flare voice team. Congrats! When I first heard your voice, I instantly knew you were male hero 2. The good news is that he's a great character, a really fun womanizer with a unique talent. The bad news is that he doesn't have any lines yet (but he's next on my list)."

A womanizer, eh? I like that.

In his initial response to me, he said that he got a lot of feedback since Dtoid's post went live. Did anyone else volunteer for and get any of the available positions? It would be neat to find out how many of my fellow Dtoiders are on the team.

Anyone? Anyone? Beuller? Beuller?

About John Bone of us since 1:15 AM on 11.26.2006

As one of the oldest members of Dtoid, (I'm already over the big 4-0) I've been gaming since the Atari 2600 was a brand new item, and thousands of my teenage hours were dedicated to gaming on the Commodore 64 and messing around with the new 300-baud modems. (That's .00003 of a megabit per second, for those of you who only know broadband.)

I'm proud to say that I'm a member of the first-generation of gamers, and I still use my PC and each of the three current-gen consoles regularly -- and not for "casual" games. Bring on the hard-core FPS and 3PS! I want to shoot something!

So, I give a big PHUCK YOU!!! to anyone who thinks that video games are for kids! As far as I'm concerned, they haven't been for kids for over 20 years.
