A Star (Will Be) Born

I want to thank everyone who sent in an audition for Ashley, from last week’s open casting call. And judging from the number of entries, by “everyone” I mean “a double digit percentage of the total population of the world” because WOW did we get a lot of auditions! We’re combing through them now — it’s going to take some time before we can find the absolutely best Ashley we can in all this amazing talent. But hey, that’s the kind of problem you want to have, right? It’s a great problem. Thank you for giving us this problem. We love you.

In other news, Arcade Spirits is headed to Dreamhack Atlanta! We love Dreamhack — I remember its roots in the 90s as a demoscene gathering, and seeing it blossom into not only an esports venue but also a thriving indie game showcase is really spectacular. Oddly appropriate, considering we made a game that’s all about chasing your dreams…

In the weeks ahead we’re going to have announcements for you about our voice cast, so you can get to know the faces behind the voices you’ll be hearing. I’ll also have some development notes as we head into the final stretch of dev work to get the game fully assembled and — this is the big part — tested extensively. We don’t want some obscure combination of choices you make along the way to ram you headfirst into a showstopping bug, do we? It’s going to take hard work, but we’re ready.

For folks in the $25 club from our old Patreon (now defunct) we’ll have a November build for you in November. For everyone else… we’ll be working to get you the full game as soon as we can. Good things are ahead — keep an eye on this space. And thank you for your support!

Help Ashley Find Her Voice!

For those waiting to hear about open casting calls for Arcade Spirits, the time has come! Ashley Wolf, dedicated cosplayer and floor attendant for Francine's Arcade Funplex, needs your help!Are you a voice talent who thinks they have what it takes to help Ashley express her love of cosplay, arcade games, and weekend bingo night fiestas? Let's find out.

THE RULES ARE AS FOLLOWS! Any audition not following these rules exactly will be ignored and left behind, dwindling towards the horizon while sad piano music plays.
  • AUDITIONS ARE DUE BY: Friday, October 26th 12:00pm PST
  • You must have a home studio, a quiet space to record, and the ability to capture and send your audio. Don't worry about cleaning it up. We'll take care of that.
  • The audition dialogue you need to record can be found in this document: Ashley's Dialogue! (It has minor spoilers, so only read if you want to read for the part.) It includes two small scenes, and a number of short emotional reaction lines.
  • Files should be recorded in 48k / 16 bit and delivered as .mp3s. You can create one file for the whole audition, no need to split it up.
  • If doing multiple takes (MAX 2), record the script fully then the script fully again after.
  • STATE YOUR NAME (Just say your name at the beginning of your audition in your normal tone of voice)
  • Please label your file like this: Ashley_YourFirstnameLastname.mp3
  • Some of the dialogue will be fully spoken, some will be quick emotional reactions (similar to games such as Octopath Traveler, Dream Daddy, and Fire Emblem) that go along with the text on the screen.
  • The gig will pay $200 an hour with a 2 hour minimum. This means that if you land this and then rock the session and it only takes you an hour, we will still be paying for 2 hours of your time. We may cast you for a background role as well.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Break a leg! Looking forward to hearing it!As for all the other characters of Arcade Spirits, the ones we've already cast... we'll have news for you of who's who and what's what in the weeks ahead. Keep an eye on Twitter and get ready for some fun!
