If you’ve ever wanted to be a resident of Oddworld, now’s your chance – sort of. Just Add Water is calling for fans who want to be immortalised in Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty. All you need to do is record yourself sounding like a Mudokon!
If you think you’ve got what it takes to sound like a worker of RuptureFarms (and a decent microphone and sound recording equipment), the team wants to hear from you!
We have to use recordings at such a high sample rate to give us plenty of headroom to alter and fiddle with the sound of your voice to really make you into a Mudokon. Remember, there’s no guarantee we will use your voice. Quality is paramount and if it doesn’t meet the standards, it can’t go in.
Interested? Practice your best efforts at these Mudokon phrases:
- Hello / Hi
- Angry hissing
- Pain grunts (oof, ow, eugh, etc) x5
- Death screams x3
- Bonus points for providing some sound effects for the wildlife of Mudos (birds, Scrabs, Elums, etc.)
Once recorded, you need to post your efforts (privately if you wish) to SoundCloud, and share it with the Oddworld Inc account.
Multiple takes are encouraged but the file must be 24BIT/96KHZ WAV FORMAT, and downloadable from SoundCloud.
If you are chosen, you will be featured in the game and your name included in the end credits!
…you will have to be quick, though: The competition closes on Friday July 26th, so clear your throat and start giggling! For more information, head to the Oddworld Inc blog!
