I love to keep utmost secrecy about Cave Story mods that I'm working on, (by, for example: Not releasing demos, giving one development screenshot a year, and one video per mod) however it is time for me to let out a bit more information out than usual*; why...? Fuck, man, didn't you read the title? I'm opening voice acting applications for N.E.T. Story!

  1. A microphone of some quality. It need not be perfect, just don't use an internal one, or post lines that have lots of bumping and background noise in them.
  2. A voice that has emotion, and fits the role you're applying for.
That's it. May the best man/woman win... apply get accepted.
So, if you want to apply then here is the template you will need to use:
Code:
-Name: <any name you would like to be called by>
-Contact: <should be an email address or Skype username, not a Skype name>
-Applying For: <the role you're applying for, roles are listed in the spoiler below thing one.>
And finally, after that you will need to attach a .zip containing voice lines from the role you're applying for.
NOTE: All the following characters that were in the original N.E.T. Story will be using lines from there, rather than the new mod.

Sarah
Just like Kenny.
Sarah sounds like she's in her late 20s, she's also quite an emotional roller coaster.
Sarah said:
(curious/pondering) Is that... 'you'?
(from awestruck to sad) Impressive! I don't think anyone's ever beaten me before...
(like a mother speaking concernedly to her daughter) *sigh* Where did you find those?

No fucking clue what his name is, so he's just referred to as 'you'
That robot who you play for the entire game.
I honestly have no idea what 'you''s voice sounds like, so basically just give it whatever you got. One thing I do know is that his voice has a slight lack of emotion when he's talking normally, but he can have plenty of it if he's in an unusual mood.
'you' said:
(freaked out melodramatically) Oh, god! She's reading my thoughts again!
(confused and panicked) Sarah? SARAH!!
(casual) Who was that?

Arthur
Arthur. Yeah, that's right; Toroko's big brother.
Preferably he'd be played by a Canadian who draws pixel art cats, almost finished a mod once and has a website that hasn't been updated since the 80s.
Arthur said:
Hello, my name is Arthur. I am the number one around here, and I do what I can to protect my village.
(grateful) Thank you again for finding my little sister.

(Teenage) King
King... oh dear.
King sounds rather clumsy, shy, and his voice has a slight quiver to it when he's upset.
Arthur said:
(timidly) Hello? ... Oh, you can't speak. Sorry to trouble you.

(Young) Toroko
Hmm... not sure how I'm ever going to find voice actors for her.
Basically I need somebody who's around 6... (Or sounds it.)
Toroko said:
(fretting) Oh, no! He's gonna be so mad...
(adorably furious, yelling) You jerk!

If you don't want to play any of these characters, or you don't think you'd be suitable for the role then please check back later. As more spots may open up as new characters are introduced into the mod.

I finally finished writing this damn thread, hurrah~!
Enjoy your day, and stay to fray.

*More information than usual = saying the names of some of the characters that will be in the mod, and listing some of their lines.

Wait, what exactly do you mean by that??? If it really was as easy as that then everyone would be doing it.

Nevermind, I just got the joke.

So... how are you doing it zxin?

It's possible, and probably real, assuming zxin can get people to do the voices.
EDIT: Proof. Ignore files "Data/beatmap.lua", "Data/Npc/Beatmap", "Data/Npc/Regu" - unrelated project involving enemies being timed to a song.
EDIT2: And yes, the link above has been in my signature for quite a while. I'm a bit surprised that people don't think this is possible...

Ha, Ralren's samples are actually pretty good. I particularly liked his voice of Toroko.

Your audition for King was the best out of the two so far, although I'd look for someone else.
I don't know why you even applied to be Sarah, but it was quite funny.
Finally: I quite liked your job of 'you,' I wouldn't be surprised if you'd end up being the best to apply for the role after all the applications have come in.

Just as a note to those applying: I will close the applications when I feel like I've gotten an appropriate voice actor for each role, and only then will I actually confirm who I've picked.

-Applying For: Teen King, and You.

I have to review my voice first before posting them, so just wait a bit.

EDIT: Here's my Teen King submission. Oops.
Also I improvised a lot, and for that, I apologise. (I'd do Arthur voice but idk if I'm canadian enough)

EDIT 2: Annnd here's You.

-Applying for 'You'

https://clyp.it/dqilljam
It's cringy as all hell but whatevs I decided to give it a shot.
Hnn, you sound more suited for King than 'you.' Would you mind re-applying for him? Also, if you do: please send me a file, rather than an audio stream so I can organize all the entries into a folder on my computer.

Hmm, I like your voice; but I'm not sure you'd suit those two roles.

Noxid still has to audition. More roles may open up later, I wouldn't say you fit any of the current ones.

So are you just going to avoid answering the question of "how are you going to put voices in a mod"? Because I can't imagine its a trivial task, not with how the sfx system is set up for Cave Story, and it'd be nice to see a proof of concept for this actually working before getting voice actors.

solid proof

I don't know if it not running is an issue on my end or but it's a pretty bad example

EDIT: Unless it's not an example at all and not even intended to be run? In which case uh.

Yeah I'm getting the same error Polar is getting here, this is a pretty lackluster proof of concept.

That version doesn't work for some reason. I think it's to do with the fact that ******** ****** ** ****** *** ** *** **** ******** **** **** ****** ** *** ****, ****!

Well color me unimpressed then, since as far as I can tell you can't even pull off putting the voices into the game.
