More than ever, video games are being created around big story arcs, offering an array of complex characters. From gruff warrior overlords to pragmatic princesses nearly all modern games contain an element of voiceover work.
Voiceover Artists are the people that provide the voices within the game, helping to immerse the player deeper into the world their experiencing. Voiceover work can be simply narration to help direct the moves of the player or dynamic dialogue between characters to drive the plot forward.
Some professionals that do voiceover work also do performance capture and work under the title of Games Performer or Games Actor. Either way, Voiceover Artists need to demonstrate passion, versatility and a wide spectrum of acting skills.
