What is this game?
A low poly story driven zombie game heavily based off the original 1978 Dawn of the Dead, and the video game "Dead Rising"s concept of using anything as a weapon and the 80's time period and music(golden age of horror movies).
It is being worked on daily, and I need a loyal team who would like to be a part of what I'm doing.
A small homage to George A Romero
A small scale outbreak is occurring in a small countryside town. Still discovering the nature of the rising dead,
3 people take shelter in a radio station on the outskirts of town abandoned by the original owner. They shut off power to the elevator and use the fire escape to get to and from the supplies they need, as well as to people who need their help who they find on through radio contact. Discover the plague from their perspective and get to the bottom of it before the center of disease tries to wipe them out in 3 days .
Below is a list of all the characters I will need for voice acting along with a few test lines.
Keep in mind this is inspired by 80's horror, so if you can do a stern voice of how you think it would be
depicted in a movie from that time period it would mean alot. (slightly cheesy!) for an example I am posting a link
to the Original Dawn of the Dead. The script is still forming, but as this is a one man team project lines will be given in large chunks at a time instead of a full script.
Ryan Douglas [Main Playable Character]
The peace keeper of the team. Optimistic and young at heart. Will go out of his way to help others. Loyal to the team.
For voice style, think Peter from 1978s Dawn of the Dead
"We will make it...Someone's got to" context: giving hope to one of the other main characters after drama.
"When I come back there's going to be a thousand zombies behind me..You make sure it's boarded up tight"
The muscle, and the handyman. Can fix nearly anything. A rugged "mans man" Not just dumb muscle. Always thinking ahead.
Can be hot headed at times but within reason. For voice style, think Kenny from the Walking dead Telltale game..
"There's not too many of em around this morning. We need those tools..Food..and supplies..."
"With all the new faces coming back with you, it wouldn't be a bad idea to block this place off."
"We don't know how long this will last. Enough of em' in the courtyard and were stuck!"
Psychopath boss #1
A blue ribbon cook off enthusiast who snapped when he couldnt win the award he wins every year
[creative freedom is yours, keep in mind the 80s theme however]
"We have plenty of food left for your growling stomachs!"
"Is that him?! The judge! He's finally arrived haha"
A true worry wart, easily freaks out but strong willed. Usually the opposer to anything that sounds too dangerous when the team is making plans. Grows to be be strong minded as the outbreak unfolds
"Its too dangerous on foot! We nearly didnt make it here."
"We have to act fast before those things find out were in there, and then we cant get out!"
"Oh my god!, Ryan!"
Deadlines for auditions ends on 9/05/2019 the game is in full production and we need the voices asap.
