Project Main Details

Cutting edge video game with atypical voiceover 
The character is a transgender female. Any race. Late 20s to mid-40s. She is seeking professional therapeutic help. She presents symptoms of being agoraphobic (afraid of going outside) and feels very comfortable in her own apartment, where she maintains control. Initially, for her intake interview, she’s a bit defensive, not aggressively so, but in a self-protective way. The doctor’s office places her out of her element and she’s not comfortable with that. She’s only here at the insistence of her friends, who think she needs to seek professional assistance.

Casual, friendly, uses humor as a defense mechanism.

The project is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed game in the spirit of classic adventure games like Myst. It uses off-the-shelf biofeedback technology to monitor potential indications of stress while playing and dynamically responds accordingly, adjusting the challenges in the game moment-to-moment.

Seeking seasoned voice over actors for minimal (hour or less) recording sessions. Not a typical game recording session. Scripts are dramatic monologues of people in crisis. Characters are never visually displayed in the game--we know them only through voiceover.

Script Details

Yes, yes... it’s true I’ve become a bit of a shut in. I don’t like leaving my apartment much these days. It’s just, you know, safe. I can keep things clean. I’m in control there.

It’s so… unpredictable outside. I guess I just got tired of feeling overwhelmed. Of being scared out there. I guess I know it’s a problem but, honestly, it’s not THAT big of a deal. Some birds live their whole lives in cages and are perfectly happy!

(awkward pause for a few seconds)
...Oh, keep going?

(annoyed and not wanting to focus on the topic out of being so tired of it always being the focus of discussion in scenarios like these, but also embarrassed at coming off as annoyed and trying to overcompensate with cheeriness)
I am happy to say that I’ve been in a steady relationship for a little over a year now. Yes, in case you were wondering, I am transgender and my love knows and is fine with it. My partner is really great, always thinking of me and

(jokingly...maybe a bit too jokingly)
keeping me out of trouble. I mean, of course we have our arguments, sure, but what relationships don’t, right?

(getting bored and wanting to wrap things up)
Look, I don’t believe much in therapy, to be honest. However, I know my friends are concerned - they practically kidnapped me so I would talk to someone this time. So, here I am now.

Second Scene:
I thought if I did everything right. If I conformed to my love’s expectations. Everything would be perfect. I would find my reward for all the shit I’ve been through.

But, at the end of the day, it wasn’t the words. It wasn’t the actions. It wasn’t the hate.

It was my hate. ...for...myself. Deep down, I welcomed the rage. I embraced it. It confirmed what I thought I knew about myself.

That I couldn’t be loved. That the outside world would shred me apart if it weren’t for that relationship. Yes, I was trapped by the threats and actions. However, the real cage was the one I allowed to build around myself.

It all sounds so ridiculous when I say it out loud. But, I think it’s the truth.
