Title: Darkness Rebirth

I still remember the day all the madness started. I saved the world from living hell...and doomed us all to something much worse

To gain power, one must always pay a price. And in a world where power is gained through Miracles, the price is steep. A life must be sacrificed to generate Vita, the corrupted lifeforce used to make Miracles. Those who receive the Vita through sacrifice are called deities. They are men worshiped as gods simply because they sacrifice innocent lives for power.

It is in this world that Araden, the prophesied hero, fulfilled his destiny to defeat an ancient evil. However, he realized there was more he had to do. Religious wars, pain, murder, and injustice still plagued the world. Simply saving the world was not enough. He had to change its very nature.

He had to burn the world and raise paradise from its ashes.

Spoiler: Nethera • show

After watching his brother sacrificed, Nethera vows to destroy all deities. He views them as the source of all the evil in the world. Becoming cold and cruel, Nethera spent the next ten years of his life pursuing this goal at all costs. The fervor at which he pursues him ambition gained him a high rank in the Remission (an organization dedicated to stopping the chaos and wars caused by deities).

To others, Nethera seems to be a sadistic sociopath.

Spoiler: Esnuil • show

Esnuil left his home in his mid twenties, and joined the Remission (an organization dedicated to stopping the chaos and wars caused by deities). Due to his outstanding organizational skills and his prowess in battle, he was quickly granted a leadership position. Esnuil claims to be descended from the hero of light that saved the world long ago, but very few believe him.

However, he refuses to discuss where his vast amounts of Vita come from.

Spoiler: Anithiel • show

Anithiel was raised to fight. Her parents both belonged to the Remission, and devoted her childhood to training. Once she was of age, she quickly climbed the ranks. Using her unrivaled skills with the bow, and whatever Vita the deity she followed would grant her, Anithiel gained respect as a great warrior and leader. However, despite the ease with which she kills, she still places enormous value on human life.

But, what will happen if the Remission decides her deity is evil?

"Professional" voice actors? You paid them to voice the game? :o
Title: Re: Darkness Rebirth
Post by: Legacyblade on December 02, 2009, 02:16:24 AM
I didn't pay them. But most of my voice actors actually do it professionally as well as for some non-commercial projects.

Don't ya need one more voice? o.O ^^

Realy impresive work Blade ;)

At the moment, I don't need any more voices. But if I need a minor role or extra that I haven't cast yet, would you be interested in doing that? (trust me, you don't want to VA a main character for me any way. You'll generally end up doing each line 10+ times cuz I'm so picky. That's why I kept having to recast, I think, lol)

And thanks, I've spent a lot of time on this project. I can't wait to post it here for everyone's enjoyment

^Well every role is important want so I don't mind ^^

Think you could throw together a demo reel of the different voices you can do? (that way I'll know ahead of time what minor characters you'd fit) Or if you can only do your regular voice, a quick clip of you saying something.

I can try, but I'd rather do with lines instead, or I won't know exactly what to say.
Title: Re: Darkness Rebirth

If anyone needs a line to show off their regular voice, use the following.

"Gwar. I shall eat your soul using the firey sword of endless cliche."

:P

Post by: Kirroha on December 03, 2009, 09:17:41 AM
Maybe not. XD Tell you what, I'll send you some lines which I've done before for another project, which I got the part of. Then you see lah.
Title: Re: Darkness Rebirth
Post by: Legacyblade on December 03, 2009, 01:41:30 PM
alright, that'll work. But hey, if anyone doesn't have a line, that gwar one I provided will work perfectly :P

However, there are only limited few voice types here. If you need more, just say so, since I can do quite a lot.

Sweet :D you've got a good voice. Thanks for giving me those lines (now I can sell them on ebay, mwahahaha  :P ). Out of curiosity, what's your nationality? I can't quite place your accent.

Post by: Kirroha on December 11, 2009, 09:52:17 AM
Ehehehehe. ^^; Singaporean, but I was born in China. And Chinese, too.

The person whom I auditioned Tsukiko for said my accent was probably due to me speaking two languages most of the time, and one of them rubbed on to the other. I'm not too sure though.

I think it's the chinese rubbing off on the singaporean, but that's just my guess :P It's a cool accent, I like it.

So...what ever happened to this?
Title: Re: Darkness Rebirth
Post by: Legacyblade on December 25, 2014, 06:02:21 PM
Hey! You found this old thread this got abandoned ages ago. I bit off way more than I could chew with the scope I intended for darkness rebirth. I'm planning to eventually make a visual novel of it though :)
Title: Re: Darkness Rebirth

Heh, well, if this is something that you ever do get around to, I'll tell you something right now - You probably should ditch the voice acting idea :/ My brother also had an idea of making games with voice acting, and I STRONGLY opposed it (I think he also understands now that it's a bad idea). As much as you want to add emotion to what someone's saying in a text dialogue, adding real voices to it is not the way to go. Unless you get some of the greatest voice actors, it's going to sound like shit. No one wants to hear it. And if anyone does actually manage to listen through a game, they probably only did it to keep the laughs rolling. Voice acting doesn't work in these type of games, because we don't have a mouth and facial expressions to go with it. It just seems out of place; it always will.

I was going to talk about Sin Unsullied intro here, but I think that would be more suited for it respective thread.
