I launched another mini-project today called, Voice Actors.
There are plenty of good places for modders to find voice actors, but I often have people contact me and ask if I know of anybody.
I am hoping that over time modders and voice actors will use the site more and more. It’s not much work for me to add new actors when they contact me, so it’s not a drain on my time.
I will email everybody every six months and ask if they wish to stay on the list or update their information.
The site is 95% finished, but I thought I’d let you know about it now.
If you have any feedback on the site itself or questions/suggestions/ideas or comments regarding the project, please post them here.
There are plenty of people out there that are thinking of doing some voice acting, let this be the catalyst for you!
I would be very grateful if other websites would help promote this project, thanks.

You are Gordon Freeman, a scientist working at a top secret government laboratory.
Your team is working on discovering the implications of the Chaos Theory, but so far the results have been inconclusive.
However, you have the feeling that today’s experiment may provide answers one way or another…
We chat about how he got into level design and the industry, his mods, his process, the difference between making mods and retail games, plus a bunch of other things.
Magnar has agreed to follow this post, so if you have questions that I didn’t ask, he may be able to answer them for you.

“You are, as always, Gordon Freeman. After you got that mess the scientists made under control, the scientists and the government have set up a research lab, called New Mexico Alien Reasearch Center. This lab is, of course, secret.
Maybe the questions isn’t as clear as it should be, but what I am asking about is the frequency rather than any reference to “style”. That could be a whole other topic!
To be honest, I play as much as I want as often as I want, in fact, I generally prefer it when it rains, so I don’t feel guilty sitting in front of my PC when the sun is shining.
