VIDEO GAME RELEASE: Starfield
Nicky voices two characters in this new IP from Bethesda Game Studios
I’m thrilled to finally be able to talk about my voiceover work in Starfield !!!
Starfield is the first new universe in 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. In this next generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.
As an RPG gamer myself, this was a real treat to work on and I’m excited to dive into the game!
I am so grateful to have been directed by George Ackles; his experience and enthusiasm for the medium was like getting private coaching while working at the same time. I was already familiar with the fundamentals of voiceover for RPGs as a gamer fond of the genre, but with branching and conditional dialogue, the importance of a director cannot be understated! Making a game this massive is a humongous undertaking.
I play two NPC characters: Maeve Salini (whom I predict will sound like me) and The Emissary (whose helmet distorts their voice). To avoid spoilers, I’ll leave it at that for now! But if you don’t mind spoilers, there’s already videos on YouTube featuring The Emissary, since that character is a big part of the main questline. 🥰 I edited a 2 minute spoiler-free video; watch it here or below:
Thank you to my VO agent, Portia Scott, at Coast to Coast Talent! And thanks to Blindlight and the audio engineers at Dave and Dave Recording Studios for inviting me to be a part of this game and for making my time in the booth so much fun. Much thanks also to my friends/mentors/colleagues Melique Berger, JP Karliak & QueerVox, and The PGM VO List — wouldn’t be traipsing the star fields without you.
