“The idea of ​​voicing game characters has been around for a long time because we constantly want to improve Manor Matters and are also working hard on a new project. The Manor Matters player base has reached incredible proportions, so we decided it was time to give voices to our characters. We chose the best studio for the recording session and invited the top dubbing actors. You may have heard some of those voices in Hollywood movies, popular TV series, and cartoons with Ukrainian dubbing. It was an unforgettable experience. We were able to realize the idea quickly, thanks to quality preparation and planning of the whole process. It was a lot of fun. Now we have a lot of work to do to implement the recordings in Manor Matters, and very soon, players around the world will be able to enjoy them,” says Sergey Kovalchuk, Sound Producer at VOKI Games.

The VOKI sound department managed to organize the necessary equipment in advance, worked with the script, and compiled a list of situations the actors had to voice.

One of the most crucial moments was the search for dubbing actors because it was essential for us to find those who could get into the image of the characters and feel them one hundred percent.

As a result, we put together a stellar cast of voice actors for our games:

  • Evgeny Malukha, who voices Homer from The Simpsons and Dr. Gregory House from House MD;
  • Kateryna Braikovskaya, who directed the dubbing of Joker, It, and Deadpool and also became Margot Robbie’s official voice in Ukraine;
  • Julia Perenchuk, known for the voice acting of Alexandra Anastasia Lisowska in The Magnificent Century;
  • Yuri Kovalenko, who voiced as many as 23 characters in The Simpsons;
  • Natalia Romanko, the voice of Megan Fox and Scarlett Johansson.

Manor Matters characters come to life

The time that the VOKI sound team spent at the recording studio was intense: our engineers recorded thousands of files with exclamations and sneezes, laughter, coughs, and grunts under their breath, helped the actors to understand the characters better and integrate with the role, and mapped the emotions of the game characters.

Now the text dialogues of our characters will be accompanied by their sincere emotions. And very soon, millions of players worldwide will be able to laugh with Carl, resolve mysteries with Amelia and Peggy, and grumble with Bill. We are sure it will make the game even more exciting!

We made a movie about the Manor Matters game voicing, shot behind the scenes, and talked with the actors and the sound team of VOKI Games. We will share the best shots of this exciting process with you in January! Subscribe to our Instagram and stay tuned 😉
