Elijah was super easy to work with and his recordings are fantastic quality.
His voice acting skills have breathed new life into our character!
10/10 would recommend.

Beam Team Games - Stranded Deep (On Steam)

The voice acting was very well-done and professional quality. I was worried that I'd have to edit the audio myself since I have no experience with that, but it was already done for me which was a really nice touch. The performance itself was quite entertaining to watch on the livestream. It's not my field, but I learned a lot about voice acting from watching which gave me insight into the process and will help me work better with voice actors in the future. To wrap it up - great job, way above expectations, would recommend to others.

Marcin Swieczkowski - OverPong

Having Elijah record new voiceover for us immediately transformed our game VR Karts into a more professional, polished product. The turnaround time from request to delivery was very quick further highlighting how professional Elijah and his team are. We would highly recommend Elijah and his team!

Neil Campbell - VR Karts

You're my hero Elijah, my game becomes much better with the voices of you and your cast.

David Zobrist - "Orcs" for Mobile

I cannot thank you enough ... this is going to make Heart Of Death shine!

Alicia Norman - Luv Multimedia | www.heartofdeath.com

You, Kaela and Kristen are really professional voice actors! I'm so lucky that I've found you!

Manuel Calavera - Skyrim Modder

Oh my god. Professionalism at its best! Good work, brother!

Mário João Reis - GTA San Andreas Modder

I Loved just watching the stream as Elijah and his cast preformed my script. Downloading the script was super easy, and the audio file was super high quality and the voice acting was just tremendous. 10 out of 10. Absolutely amazing!

Tyler Snipes - The Rise Of Atticus

The voice acting was, of course, top notch, but what I noticed in the stream and really liked was the great attention to detail and dedication to getting the recordings just right. The entire team has got a lot of passion with a lot of talent. There's a great variety of voices and you'll definitely find what you need for your project.

This is for all of you who are too lazy to read the detailed breakdown of what I wrote below 😛 Don’t worry – I would probably pick the TLDR version too.

1. You must have a working demo and screenshots of your game near it’s final stages of development.

2. You must have a website or something for us to promote in the channel.

3. Please provide pronounciations and context for your scripts. Some lines may make sense to you, but when you only provide a line with no reference of what the character is doing, or where he is, it makes no sense to the cast.

4. You will receive your audio mastered, but un-edited. which means we will send you a processed vocal, but it’s up to you to splice it up into little files and remove the breaths.

5. Please be courteous to other developers and don’t submit too long a script, or submit too often, if you have recently submitted a script and would like more done, consider ordering a Fiverr.com package that suits you. Or, simply hire my studio for a couple hours of time.

6. You may not specify a cast member for your roles, I bring in many different actors and actresses so there is no guarantee that your favorite member of the cast will be in the house. Rest assured, your audio will be crispy clean and the talent will be bad ass! – And just to clarify this further, this is not meant to be a rude statement, the cast of Voice Acting Power Squad have real lives, and they sacrifice their occasional Mondays to come in and have fun with indie developers, if you really love a particular voice that much, then you can support them by ordering an hour or two of studio time from them. 🙂

7. The show is every Monday starting at 5pm MOUNTAIN STANDARD TIME (-6)

And, in the end, if you don’t want to follow any of these rules, then just submit a script anyways, and see what happens. Who knows, it might be fun!

This free voice acting conversation is an interview between a game developer, like you, and myself. All names have been changed to protect the identities of the owners… well… except my name, which is Elijah Lucian.

Game Dev: Free voice acting? Whaaaaa? (<- you)

Elijah Lucian: Yep that’s right, free voice acting! No hassles, no strings, no money! (<- me)

G: How does that work?

E: First off, lets change one simple aspect of this.. Instead of “free” think “crowd-funded” because that’s exactly what this is. Our Twitch and Patreon subscribers are paying for you to get 30 minutes of free studio time.

If this concept of “free” still bothers you, I welcome you to buy a fiverr gig, and proceed from there. the rules are more loose, because you pay a few bucks instead of getting it for free. If you would like free stuff and you have no problem accepting the help of this campaign, then READ ON!

My studio’s free voice acting offer is extremely simple: You submit a script and we record it, edit and export the lines into a cloud folder.  You have a license to use the files in your game for free! No monetary commitment however full credit must be given and our splash screen must be used, which will be provided with a link to your audio. Please credit any actors and actresses that recorded their lines.

G: How do I know when you’re streaming on Twitch?

E: We stream once per week on twitch.  The timezone is MST – Mountain Standard Time

Monday 5-7 pm (though it typically goes later)

Monday nights we have a full cast in house which at the very least is 4 actors (2 male – 2 female) but we generally have 1-2 extra voices on top of our regular cast (Kaela & Elijah)

You can also just test your luck and click over to my twitch tab on this website 😉

G: But why is it free?

E: Aside from the main reason which is: This stream cannot survive without your script submissions… There are a number of reasons that the twitch stream is free. You, my gamedev friend, fit into one of these categories:

#1 We offer our service to developers who only need a few lines of voice acting and can’t really budget for the minimum charge of professional game studios. This cost is anywhere from 1-5 hours of studio time ($200-$1500 depending on rates). We decided to take a couple hours out of our week, get together and just fire off a bunch of small scripts for fun. We love doing short scripts for indie games.

#2 We offer a free 30 minutes of professional voice recording and processing to studios that are on the fence about which voice casting house to team up with. This not only allows you to test the product beforehand but also gives the chance for game developers to see a professional script be read by professional actors. Education! Science!

#3 I am a good counter as you can see but here is probably the most important reason for you, the gamedev: PROMOTION! Your project will be shown to over 1000 viewers over the course of the night and week. Not only that but while you are in the stream you can talk about your game, ask about crowdsourcing support like Kickstarter or Steam Greenlight or ask people to pre-purchase your game. It’s a free ticket to spam your target demographic, people that play games!

#4 WE STILL GET PAID! So before you question your morals and try to talk yourself into using this service, know that we still get paid. This is a crowd-funded project! People that subscribe to my twitch channel are funding this for you – the lucky game dev that gets 30 minutes of free professional studio time!

G: Actually I am hesitant because free stuff always sucks!

E: Oh… well.. sometimes, that might be the case, however, just take a look at the testimonials above, go check out their games! These are real developers like you that decided to take part in our stream, alternately check out our team page, you can clearly hear that we are offering a professional service. All files are delivered in your preferred format but if there is no preference it will be delivered in fully mastered, 16-bit 44.1khz mono audio.

Also remember that we are streaming this LIVE. And our brand is all over it… So if our work sucks, that is not exactly good for our brand is it? Trust that we want to treat you just as we would any other client.

G: Okay… there was mention about some kind of rules?

E: Ah yes. The Rules. Well… more like guidelines….

#1 Working Demo or Screenshots are nice.

People love looking at stuff, and we want to show them what you’re working on, our viewers know everything is in an alpha state, so they are not gonna judge. They mostly just want a visual guide to what we’re doing.

Just make sure you send along either a working demo or screenshots or some video of gameplay.

#3 Follow this format in your email plsthx.

Name of Game:

Twitch Name:

This is so we can say hi to you in stream…. as well as make sure you are in chat.

Link To Game/Website/Promotional Material:

You should have something to link to. That way, we can constantly direct traffic your way while we are recording your lines. People are interested and they want to see what you are up to. You must have some kind of site or link to promotional material. It shows your potential customers that you are commited. A lot of people have their work on steam greenlight or indieDB, for example.

Your Script:

This should be a no brainer. It should be formatted with context rather than all the lines on their own. In the body of the email is ok, just make sure you format it with the context below.

Context: (required)

Example Script (notice where the text is bold). Add this to the script so it’s easy to follow for the actor:

(only do the hero lines)

{player arrives to destination and is confronted by NPC} <- tell what the characters are doing while the lines are being delivered. This allows us to really help to create the proper mood. If you do not deliver context, we cannot do your scripts

NPC: <said angrily> “It’s about time!” <- this gives our actors something to follow in terms of emotion.

Hero: <said with arrogance> “Calm yourself, old man.”

NPC: <enraged> “How could you take so long to get me this scroll?”

Hero: <joking> “Well, I was on my way to you but then I took an arrow to the knee.”

NPC: <still cross> “You can’t just quote the elder scrolls and make everything ok.”

Hero: <mysteriously> “Can’t I?”

G: Alright I am gonna send in my script! … is there anything else I should know?

E: Well…. since you asked… You could always


This stream runs off of the love we have for indie gaming but some beer money while we do it makes it that much better… and probably more entertaining for the audience. We are happy to do it for free but if you can afford a few dollars, pay it forward for future game developers.

You can donate by the following means:

One time Donation through PayPal!


G: Dude I seriously can’t even afford to eat right now…

E: I totally understand and like I said above, you don’t need to donate anything to keep this stream alive. What keeps this stream alive is script submissions!

If you can’t donate money, consider donating a few minutes of your time by linking this blog post to a few of your social circles. It costs you nothing but helps us get the word out to other indie developers in need!

One good way to do this is by spreading the word about my patreon campaign! Share it on reddit, Facebook groups, Google Plus and game developer forums. Give people the opportunity to help me with my mission to expand the world of indie gaming!

G: Ok, that sounds fair. Alright, I’m ready to submit my script!!!

E: Great! Let’s do thissssssss.

Email me at vapsquad@gmail.com and let’s get this ball rolling!

Here is my twitch feed below. If I’m streaming, come say hayyyy!
