I'm available, if I count as 'quality voice acting' :P (it's certainly quality voice screeching)

I doubt my accent would suit 80s Sweden, but it looks cool, Nellie!

I don't have any experience in voice acting, but I'd be honored to offer my help in this too, if you accept. Just tell me what I should do to audition for any role, and I'll do my best.   :plat:

Oh, I'm not in charge of anything but the music, guys! XD I have nothing to do with the voice acting, but thanks for speaking up. I just thought I'd link the game since he's advertising it in a way. :p

But if you want to contact him, I'm sure he has contact info somewhere in the Indiegogo link. :)

I think the guy is not looking for voice audition, just the money to hire proffessional voice actors :P This is a crowd-funding site, like Kickstarter.

Looks good and we already know its going to have kickass music :P

Well it didn't seem that obvious since EVERYONE commented on whether they would or wouldn't audition as voice actors... >.>

This game is set to release probably around January! It looks and sounds pretty great so far. The voice acting is solid from what I can tell.

You can check out the demo here: http://faravidinteractive.wordpress.com/

The demo is only about ten minutes long, and I think you get the idea of what to expect from the game. Plus, Merlandese made the music, and I hear he's amazing at being handsome and also modest.

I can't run the demo. It says:

There was a problem initializing graphics mode 1280x800(32-bit).
(Problem: 'The requested adapter mode is not supported.')
Try to correct the problem, or seek help from the AGS website.

I have a good laptop by the way. Any help?

Try opening the setup file and change the filter settings. You can also try to play the game in windowed mode.
Good luck!

I tried those, and it didn't work. I found the actual problem though, my laptop's maximum resolution is 1366x768. So, I can't play the game demo unless there is a way to change the resolution. Could you try and ask the developer to optimize the demo for other resolutions(if you aren't the developer yourself)? Thanks. :)

That's odd, because changing the filters is changing the resolution. If you play in windowed mode without any zoom filters at all, the game will play in its native 320x200. With a x2 filter, 640x400, etc.
I'll look into this.

You should've told me that! I just tried the 4x anti aliasing filter and the other 4x filter, and after seeing my laptop's maximum resolution, I gave up. Well, I changed it to run with no filters, and it works. Sorry for bothering you. :)
