Actors voices

Thought about ideas that should be in the next update and couldn't help but ponder.... How costly and painstaking would it be for the Next Games crew to get the actors from The Walking Dead to sample their voices for the season missions? Kind of like how Norman Reedus lended his voice for the first few tutorial Missions at the start of this game. How difficult could it be to get them to say the lines that are already in the current season missions and then have their voices recorded? Better yet, after unlocking a hero, and when the quote from them appears, also have the actor's voice say that quote. Surely it shouldn't eat up too much data/memory/system performance if this became a reality in the next update....

    Wonder how time consuming for actors this would be...

    It's nontrivial.
    Assuming that all agree, the cheapest way is to let them record in their local environment.
    They get a script... But who directs the reading? Someone on Skype? Sure, they could read a dozen lines in as many minutes, but leveling all that disparate audio could either be impossible or hours of noodling... For a net total of, what, two minutes of audio track?

    I love the idea, but I'd like NG to invest in new content instead of orthogonal filler.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it's not going to happen. This obviously isn't covered in their existing contracts, and these actors (rightfully so) aren't going to do a gig like this for free. That means new contracts and negotiations that will cost money for something that isn't going to drive revenue into the game. Best to save that cash for more NML ads during season 9b. :wink:

    It's also very rare that we replay season missions and only once a lifetime to unlock a character.

    The money would be better spent redrawing some of the hero portraints (yes, I am referring to JERRY), or introduce more survivor portraits.

    Just get soundalikes, you can get someone that 99% sounds like Daryl.
