Developer Airship Syndicate has had a lot to celebrate recently. Alongside publisher Digital Extremes, the team brought its action MMORPG Wayfinder into early access. The journey is just beginning in many ways, including for the game's voice cast. We recently had a chance to catch up with renowned voice actor JB Blanc to learn more about his time with Wayfinder, as well as about the art of voice acting in general.
"The misconception [about voice acting] is that you're doing a voice," Blanc told Shacknews. "And, you're not. You're playing a character. The voice comes secondary."
On top of discussing his time with Wayfinder, Blanc shares some stories about some of his past work. He also discusses the growth of video games as a whole and how the art of voice acting has evolved over time. He also talks about SAG-AFTRA's labor battle, which earlier this week has expanded into the world of video games, and what negotiations regarding AI means to all people.
