I've been doing a lot of reading aloud recently, for two different Nancy Drew projects.
#1. Nancy Drew: Weirdness at Waverly Academy. Due to popular demand, I'm making a video series where I read my story aloud. I managed to get a very important compromise on this project, though; namely, I do not have to do girl voices.
Basically, the choice was between "should it sound like the game?" or "should it sound like its own story?". I decided to settle for something which sounds decent, rather than going for something which sounds perfect.
So the voices are nothing more than vague impressions, and I don't wory too much about consistency. The only character I don't do an impression/voice for is the main character, Nancy Drew. This is because the entire story would sound horrible if I constantly tried to sound like Nancy. But even though I don't try to be perfect, I think the voices come across very nice, and I hope everyone likes hearing the story.
#2. Nancy Drew Mobile Mysteries: Shadow Ranch for the iPad. I'm making a video walkthrough for it, and since this game is mostly a book, I read the text aloud. It's funny. I can imitate Bess' voice, I can kind of imitate George's voice, but imitating Nancy's voice is still way far beyond me.
September 8th is when my video walkthrough is going to appear on Youtube. I'm not even halfway through the game yet, and I'm on video...30 or so. Interestingly enough, I think my video walkthrough for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was about the same length.
