Voicing The Angels
“Each Angel is not only beautiful on the outside, but also has a distinct inner quality that needed to be brought out,” said Cecilia Garcia, an actress from London, UK. With an impressive theatrical resume, (she was part of the acclaimed Clockwork Orange production which sold out many nights at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival), Fire Raiders was Garcia’s first experience with games. She elaborates: “I greatly enjoyed immersing myself into LoA and learning about all the different Angels. I played the game so much that once I got behind the microphone, it wasn’t difficult at all to know how each line was supposed to be delivered.” Among other characters, Cecilia voiced Mikaela, the Angel of Fire and one of the most popular Fire Raiders Angels.

Garcia actually isn’t the only one stemming from theater. Most VO talent in Fire Raiders also have a theater background. Creative Director David Johansson explains, “Stage actors are used to controlling entire rooms with the power of their voice. With one word, they can draw the attention of hundreds of people. VO and film actors are usually more focused on subtleties, but for this game, we felt that we needed powerful voices with distinct personalities, and this cast matched our needs perfectly.” This blending of theater and mobile gaming creates an experience that is quite unique for players. Many players of the Beta version have commented on the quality of the character voices compared to other mobile games, who tend to put more emphasis on wacky sound effects and crazy music tracks.
