I am currently seeking voice actresses to fulfill the lead roles in a demo for my visual novel, Devil Gene R. The reason I'm searching for just the demo rather than the full game is due to the fact I'm currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of the project, things are going well as we have already raised 52% toward our goal in the first 24 hours. Also scripting and planning isn't 100% finished yet but the demo is, and so I'm just looking to fill these two specific roles.
The project itself revolves around a group of sisters who have been genetically altered as weapons by their father to help save humanity during a war, but after the war was one the father seems to have turned his back on people and now threatens to incite a new war. His children are content to follow his lead, all with the exception of one who went missing 2 years ago but has reemerged to right the wrongs of her bloodline. But those who govern the world refuses to sit idly by as this family dispute shakes the fabric of a hard fought peace.
The two roles I'm seeking to fill include:
The estranged daughter of Kyosuke Blackheart, a man said to be the "hero" of the last great war, despite this Raven has all but renounced her lineage and abandoned her father's side 2 years ago. She was all too quick to return upon hearing her father's insane plot of global genocide, and was enraged that he would resort to using her sisters as weapons once more. Raven rushes to Silent City in order to confront her father and end the Blackheart blood, erasing the Devil Gene from existence.
An "EXO" of the Church of Soldats, she has been cleansing the world of "impurities" by hunting demons since she was very young. As the 2nd eldest daughter of the Cross family she carries the high reputation of nobility, but this does not prevent her from constantly butting heads with her superiors, it seems the only one who can reign her in is her sister, Althena. It is under her orders Amy is sent to Silent City to locate a target known as the "Black Princess", however this is a covert operation as the Church has publicly announced they are not ready to act yet on the Kyosuke Blackheart incident.
As for what I'm "looking for" honestly I'm not all too certain, direction will sure be given but the vocal pitch and quality of the characters is completely open ended. These two especially have changed designs and personalities so much over the development cycle, so I merely ask for you to interpret them as you see fit. What few guidelines I could offer; Raven is in her very early 20s while Amy is at the peak of 18, Raven is probably best suited to a deeper tone while Amy might benefit from a high pitch (but not to the extent of being too "bubbly"), if you can work in an English (Brittan) or French accent for Amy then go for it, the better you are at displaying emotional ranges the better!
As for audition lines, I please ask that you play the demo [ Windows ver | Mac ver | Linux ver --- Alternatively here is the Written Script if you're having difficulties running the demo.] and record any line(s) of your choosing from there, please send submissions to email@example.com and please feel free to send along any additional details or statements along with it.
The deadline is July 2, 2012.
Also all applicants please keep in mind the idea of reprising a role (if selected) when the full title is in production or being considered for other roles at that time (in total there will be at least 12 characters that will be voiced; 8 female, 4 male).
I look forward to hearing from you all and thank you so much for taking the time to read/apply!
