Complete Isolation is a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] freeware RPG Maker VX Ace 2D atmospheric survival-horror game that aims to break the mold and expectations put onto 2D survival-horror as well as what can be done with the RPG Maker VX Ace engine. Using original audio, art, and taking advantage of RUBY scripting, the game is currently under development via live broadcast on my personal [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

While voice acting isn't a priority at this stage in development, I wanted to get the audition out there as early as possible so that the window of opportunity is open for a while. The game takes advantage of three voice options for the player, with them being able to select to have Minimalistic Voicing (only voice acting used is what is needed for gameplay), 'Grumble' Voice Acting (groans, sighs, sobs, laughs, grrrs, etc), and 'Full' voice acting (all story cutscenes fully voiced). Voice work is a very valuable form of expression, as well as something that helps bring a character to life. 2D games, especially 2D horror games, aren't especially known for full voice acting, and as such I am taking it all very seriously. I do have a lot of experience with working with vocal actors, and for anyone who gets on-board with the project I am more than willing to communicate and work with you to get the most impact out of your voice for the specific scenes.

I can answer any concerns or questions either here or via email.

The deadline is September 30th, 2013, and all auditions should be sent to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] . Will critique on request. The work is paid work, though with a humble price-tag (we're working on a low budget) going for $50 for a main character, $20 for a Other Character, and $10 for a Monster. If you audition, please be responsive and know I will be working with a strict but reasonable deadline as our goal is to release the game in December. The auditions are being held in three different places, and the final stats will be posted on October 1st on all of the,

IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all Other Characters and Monsters are currently listed, the entire cast will be available in July.



Details & Rules
-Send your auditions to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
-Deadline is September 30th, 2013.
-I will leave critique on anyone who asks for it, and you may resubmit as long as it's before the deadline.
-Voice world will be paid a humble amount, we don't have a very high budget and this is being released as a freeware game for anyone to experience, but we're going for $50 for the main cast, $20 for the Other Characters, and $10 for the Monsters. (payments will be done via PayPal once the voicework is complete, though you are free to offer your services for free if you desire)
-Having a higher-quality microphone is desired.
-If you come aboard the project, deadlines will be very strict but reasonable. If you don't get things done in time, you will be replaced.
-Voice direction is really important to me in this project. Emoting is important, and is one of the highest qualities I am searching for. Once onboard, I will be open to working with you and directing on Skype to get the tone and emotion I'm going for and talking things over.
-There are two audio tracks for the game, one that is fully voiced and one that is limited to 'grunt' noises (sighs, sobs, grrs, etc). We'll be doing both of them.

(The character art is concept art, the final designs may change)


Main Cast



Kiara: 
Age: 17
Gender: Female
An outward ice queen, Kiara keeps closely knit with a small number of acquaintances that she is familiar with. Kiara has never been very social, being a rather deeply-rooted cynic, and one of the most stubborn people you'll ever meet. But she does have a strong sense of justice and kindness deep down for those who she considers to be a friend.
Voice & Needs: Kiara should be able to sound fairly cynical and fairly often mumbles to herself, but also be able to express endearment, disbelief, and be able to emote sadness and sobbing.
Lines: 
01.) *normal* "I'm home mom! How's dinner coming along?"
02.) *sarcastic* "Yeah, and afterwards we can all hold hands and frolic off back to paradise, eh?"
03.) *mumble* "Sure thing, Captain obvious."
04.) *caring* "You are the most stubborn person I have ever met. Please, don't do this..."
05.) *disbelief* "You...Why would you... Why!?"
06.) *sobbing* "Well, I'll see you on... The other... *break-down into crying here*"



Olivia: 
Age: 16
Gender: Female
A energetic and sociable youth, Olivia is an outgoing tomboy who alternates from being the playful center of attention, and the perverted onlooker to her close mates. She has an air about her that makes just about anyone trust her, and while a blabbermouth, takes great pride in concealing her friends secrets. Kiara and Olivia have been best friends since they were kids, and it is rare to see one without the other.
Voice & Needs: Bubbly and a habit to laugh to herself, Olivia sometimes breaks into silly voices, though also has moments of calming things down and comforting those around her. She will need to express pain verbally.
Lines: 
01.) *jokingly serious* "Why yes madame, our flight comes packed with two meals and a movie. Would you like to see our menu?"
02.) *bubbly* "That is soooo cute! I just want to smother it until it stops breathing and lock it in a cage!"
03.) *silly voice* "Which did he go? Oh, which way did he go?"
04.) *old man pervert* "Look how luxurious those puppies are~"
05.) *comforting* "It's okay. I'm here. You're not alone anymore..."
06.) *painfully as if barely managing words* "*pained noises* I... I... Please... Kill..."



Howard: 
Age: 17
Gender Male
A natural leader who acts with confidence. Howard was born in a religious atmosphere, and was greatly inspired by the feats of the son of god. He puts his all into everything he does, and is a successful soccer player, academic, and priest in training. While he can sometimes be a rather intense individual, and carries a lot on his shoulders, he’ll do what he can to help lead others and bring people together.
Voice & Needs: Has a very 'handsome' voice. Speaks proper, and confidently. Needs to be able to sound stressed, and eventually the character will need to sound creepy and out of his goddamn mind.
Lines: 
01.) *thoughtful* "But seriously, why were you here?"
02.) *jokingly* "You always were such a brat. But maybe we need brats like you every once in awhile."
03.) *confidently as his leader role* "Okay, we should stick together and see what we can find."
04.) *Creepy* "Don't be afraid. See. I'm human. I'll protect you. Come here. Seriously. I'll always be here for you."
05.) *insane* "Oh the things I would do if I were that doctor. You should be really happy I am not that doctor."
06.) *scary angry* "DON'T YOU TOUCH ME."



Aimee: 
Age: 12
Gender: Female
The youngest of the bunch, Aimee tries her best to be brave and act like an adult, but is rather childish and cowardly. Aimee lost her older brother at a young age, and has been fairly insecure ever since. While Aimee might be a bit of a prankster (even if most of her pranks backfire on her), all she really wants is to be accepted.
Voice & Needs: Needs a younger voice as the younger character. She needs to express childish pranks and gestures, and also be able to emote crying as she is somewhat of a crybaby.
Lines: 
01.) *matter-of-factly* "I'm twelve, I'll let you know. *sticks out tongue* Nyahhh."
02.) *arrogant and duffawing* "Ohohohoho~ You think I'd fall for that, well I'll let you know... *brief pause as something suddenly happens and surprises her* Ah! *humbled and out of wind a bit* I... I'm okay..."
03.) *a bit shy* "I... Would like to come with you, if you don't mind..."
04.) *cry baby time* "No! I don't want to! Let go!"
05.) *a pure track of silent sobbing to herself*
06.) *completely out of it and in pain* "Please... Open the door... I... Open... It hurts..."



Nathan: 
Age: 16
Gender: Male
A disciplined bookworm who has been put in the situation to take care of his ill mother, Nathan is a rather reserved and somewhat rough individual who has had to deal with hard times. He’s commonly misjudged due to his intimidating looks, but is actually a rather reliable sweetheart who is as resourceful as he is poetic.
Voice & Needs: Sounds somewhat cold, though a bit more warm whenever he talks about books. An elegant tone, and one that can express poetry with sensual ease and eventually sound pissed-off to the root.
Lines: 
01.) *non-interested* "Hmn. Sure."
02.) *coldly* "And who put you in charge?"
03.) *warmer and pleasantly* "I'm partial to the works of Stephen King, but Poe and Lovecraft were absolute masters of their craft."
04.) *elegantly* "And without whisper or whither, he knelt and grasped at her strands of hair, which flowed, forever doward, expressing themselves into the snow."
05.) *pissed-off* "And who was it that told everyone to head upward, hmn? You are a sick human being."
06.) *even more pissed-off* "They all died because of you!"



Melody: 
Age: 17
Gender: Female
An extravagant drama-queen with dreams to one day make it big in the city, Melody isn't all-too pleased with the current country life she lives. Interested in being involved with the latest fashion and music, the reality of cows and crops that actually is can't be viewed as anything but unacceptable in her eyes. She is a very susceptible person who will take praise to her head, but rather gullible and oblivious.
Voice & Needs: Dramatic. She often over-emotes. When she is happy, she is REALLY happy. When she is sad, she is REALLY sad. Exaggerant, she also can act like a crazy bitch when she wants too.
Lines: 
01.) *preppy* "Hello Howard! I made you lunch, tee-hee~"
02.) *exaggerated happy* "Oohh my gawsh, you totally did! Oh, that is SO you!"
03.) *confused* "What? I don't get it. *a bit ticked-off* What are you guys talking about!?"
04.) *exaggerated sad* "W-Why would you say that!? Don't you even care about me!?"
05.) *crazy angry bitch* "Oh, I'll let you know. I'll let everyone know! You have not heard the last of this, I'll make sure."
06.) *just insane* "-maniacal laughter- You... you all love me! My debut... I'm so gorgeous... Oh thank you all... -laughter-"



Dean: 
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Who can only be described as a hick and a southern gentlemen, Dean is a rather hot-headed and direct individual who has a sort of food fetish. He might be a bit slow-witted when it comes to the understanding, but he’s quite quick on the uptake. While his rowdiness can make him seem wild, he actually is quite good at following orders, and always has a place in his heart to help a fair maiden.
Voice & Needs: A southern accent, and can easily switch between buddy-buddy laughing and having a good-time, to hot-headed and gruff. Will need to sound in pain, and scared.
Lines: 
01.) *surprised* "Well, crack-me-over-two-sunny-side-eggs-and-a-hashbrown, if it isn't little Kiara!"
02.) *having a good time with friends* "Ha, yeah. I remember. Oh man, those days were just the best!"
03.) *getting hot-headed* "No, I reckon you're the one at fault, ma-je-sty~"
04.) *angry and gruff* "I'll show you some 'proper-schooling'! Clench your teeth, bastard!"
05.) *in pain* "Guh... I... Don't know if I can... Walk this one off..."
06.) *scared* "This isn't funny guys. I... Guys? I don't wanna be alone..."



Peter: 
Age: 17
Gender: Male
An elected class official and tutor, Peter spends a lot of his time observing and helping others. He has a deep fascination with the occult, which doesn't always mix well with his rather dark sense of humor. He strives for win-win situations with his peers, and has a naturally soothing presence. His optimistic attitude makes him a valued friend to many. He is often mistaken to be rather intelligent thanks to his glasses and posture, but he is actually rather ditzy.
Voice & Needs: A relaxed and soothing voice. Usually talks in a matter-of-fact type of way, but naturally emotes a kind tenderness with his voice. Will need to sound strained down the line.
Lines: 
01.) *chuckling and pleasant* "Oh my, no that's not quite how it's done, but very creative."
02.) *matter-of-factly* "The Laddler Estate was founded in the early 1900s, after settler's gathered to establish Coble Town in 1908."
03.) *With extra tender* "Oh, I apologize. I didn't mean to upset you."
04.) *deviously* "Or maybe you might just burst a vein, and call all of the forest critters forth to feast on your decaying flesh."
05.) *delighted* "Ohaha! Oh! That was a good one! Oh! You are a funny guy."
06.) *Strained and difficulty speaking* "You're.... You're just as lovely today... As you were... Yesterday..."

Is it alright if we auditioned for more than one character? I'd personally like to try my hand at a handful of them and see if you believe my voice fits with one of them. Any preference for audio file type? I am trying to get my start as a voice actor and could definitely use the feedback.

Let me know if it's alright to audition for more than one role and I'll get to practicing!

Thanks. Smile

Thank you to all those who auditioned!
