The Importance of Professional Voiceover Quality in Video Games
Hiring a female video game voice over talent is not just crucial for big-name developers. Even if you’re an indie game developer working on a brand new project or a student developer who is still learning the ropes, your game can benefit from the polished professionalism of a skilled voiceover artist.
Sometimes, a video game’s voiceover performance will be so memorable that fans reference it for years to come. Just ask fans of popular franchises like Red Dead Redemption, Borderlands, or Uncharted how they feel about the quality of the voice acting in video games—they’ll likely be ready to sing the game’s praises. There’s no denying that the right vocal talents can add a lot to an already great game. Video games and voice acting are both art forms, and when they complement one another, magic happens.
Different Voiceover Styles for Different Games
Though voice acting is important to video games across the board, there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” approach to video game voice acting. As a professional voice actor who has worked with various clients, Maria Pendolino can work with you to create the kind of vocal stylings that will best suit your game and provide cohesive results.
No matter your game’s style, Maria’s engaging, evocative voice can provide voiceovers that match any direction. Maria is highly skilled at matching celebrity vocal trends—so if you have a muse in mind, let Maria know. She can draw from her voice acting experience that dates back over a decade.
