Heya folks! As you might have known from my Twitter and previous posts, I’ve been reworking my Christmas VN the past month. Most notably changing up the visuals (BGs and GUI) and of course adding voice acting. And now I’ve made enough progress to show off these changes!

AWCG - Before AWCG - After

I’ve hired Milena Olivson to do the game’s BGs and she’s done a wonderful job with them! Although she works pretty quick, she doesn’t sacrifice quality at the same time. A huge improvement over using filtered photographs as BGs.

Oh, and of course I’d like to introduce Natalia’s voice actress – Katelyn Hamilton! She gave Natalia the personality I was looking for, with her outgoing and cheerful voice. I’ve updated AWCG’s site to include voice samples if you want to listen. 🙂

With that out of the way, I’d like to say I’m aiming to release v2.0 of “All I Want for Christmas is a Girlfriend” on December 20, 2019. Most of the things I’ve wanted to update have been implemented, but I don’t want to rush things. The GUI needs a bit more work, and of course debug, debug, debug. Aside from that, I hope you look forward to Natalia bringing you some more holiday cheer this season!

Thanksgiving is coming up, hope you all have a great (and safe) one. And thanks as always for sticking around!

2019/11/5 – Closed! I’ve found someone to voice Natalia. Thanks to those who applied!

2019/11/4 – I’ve extended the audition period to this Thursday (11/7)!

I need a female voice actress for a short romance Christmas-themed VN, “All I Want for Christmas is a Girlfriend” (AWCG)!

Learn more about the project: VN site

Character that will be voiced

Natalia
Lines: ~26
Words: ~262
Personality: Friendly, outgoing, a bit flirty
Pitch: Somewhat high
Audition Lines:

  • “I’m so glad I passed my calculus final! Thank you so much for tutoring me! I feel like I finally understand the material!”
  • “Aww, that’s so cute, you’re blushing~”

More information

I released this VN last year, but without any voice acting. I’m in the process of reworking this project, hoping to improve the visuals (mainly BGs and some GUI), and of course seeing Natalia’s personality come to life!

  • This is a non-commercial project.
  • Budget: ~$30, negotiable. Payment via PayPal.
  • Deadline: While this is a short VN, everything will need to be completed within a month (last week of November / the 30th). I’m aiming to re-release this project about a week before Christmas this year (week of December 16).
  • Format: .wav – to allow for post-processing.
  • Motivation, reliability, proactivity: very important

How to Apply

Email me here with your audition and demo reel.

Please send submissions as links to your portfolio (soundcloud, dropbox, google drive, etc.), not as email attachments. Also if selected, I would greatly appreciate it if recordings are sent via links as well (zipped up). Sound files (especially .wav’s) eat up my account space quick >.<

I will be keeping this open for at least a week, or until I find someone. Let me know if you have any questions / comments / concerns. Looking forward to hearing from you, thanks!

And as I promised earlier, here’s that audio bonus I was talking about in previous posts:

Aurelia’s Birthday Wishes!

Translation:

“Ah, hello Ryne-kun! How are you? Huh? Today is your birthday…? Uh, what should I do?
Well then….” *sings in English with slight accent. XD*
*giggles* “That was good, wasn’t it? Happy birthday. Eh… one more time? In Chinese then!” *happy birthday in mandarin chinese*
“Yay~ Hooray! Happy Birthday!”

A bonus gift from Sayaka, Aurelia’s voice actress, who did it for me months earlier. I received it as a surprise along with the redos she was doing at the time. 🙂 At the time I received it it was at least a month past my birthday, but hey it was so nice of her. So thanks Sayaka ^_^

Now, for some percentages:

Enjoy! Let’s make a push to get this project done.
