    Question: do we have a voice clip of Paprika?

    I didn't recognize her anywhere in the Vocaroo clip, unless that giggling and trilling was supposed to be her.

    Yes, that's her. From what I've seen so far when I played against her in arcade, she seems to be more the weird noises type, not the talking type. ;)

    Yep, those two clips were her, right after Arizona. She's nothing but trilling and giggles in-game. She hasn't said a word.

    I did some research. Apparently Jessica Gee is the niece of Hal Smith (the original Owl from Winnie the Pooh).

    That alone is pretty cool.

    Oh god, Tara Strong as Arizona!

    Can I have the game just to listen to the voices? :arisilly:

    I absolutely love the characters' voice! Can't wait to find a way to play this game. Not having a computer or a video game console really sucks!

    But, will there be a mode where they sound like animals tho? I'd pay extra money for this.

    I expect Paprika's story mode to include philosophical internal monologues of baby alligator-sized proportions.

    After hearing the voices, I have nothing but positive things to say. The voices do a great job of differentiating the characters from you-know-what. They don't sound like what I'd expected, but they're perfect for the characters. The lines are great and the actors do an excellent job.

    Arizona: Come on, it's Tara Strong. Unless this is a parallel universe, she's going to do a great job. It was hard for me to imagine her doing a country accent, but she pulls it off excellently.

    Velvet: Instead of sounding just prissy, her voice/lines also have a vicious bite to them (pun intended). Great way to add dimension to the character. I imagine her book of lore chapter in a different way after this lol.

    Pom: I have to admit, she sounds nothing like what I expected. I had imagined her sounding like... well, a wimp, but instead she sounds kind, yet ready to fight. Her voice actress struck a good balance, and the Scottish accent is great.

    Tianhuo: She sounds much more mature than I was imagining, which is very appropriate since she is eldest and most mentally matured of the cast. Her respectful demeanor is also very fitting with the real-life culture that inspired the Longma's.

    Oleander: I didn't know what to expect for Oleander, but the accent fits perfectly. As for Fred, he has the great blend of troll-y evil that I was hoping for.

    Paprika: I don't think anyone was prepared for her to be a wordless character, but it's somehow so right. Huge props to the devs for making this call, and her actress for pulling it off. It can't be easy to give a character life with only trilling, grunts, and kissing noises.

    Again, props to everyone involved.

    Guys guys, I was thinking that Oleander's voice was too cheery for her animations (I expected it to be way deeper, for some reason), then it struck me as another layer of character depth, because she didn't do a pact with a demon for the power or anything like that, she did it because she trusted Fred and because she wanted to prove something. She's angry when she fights you not because she's corrupted/angsty/evil (as all dark magic users are portrayed) but because she genuinely believes on her cause and everyone shuns her for it, deep inside she's a good person. Seeing how she has been an outcast for 13 (or so I'd imagine, I'd have to play the story mode to see if it's true) years and yet she still chooses to fight for what she believes in speaks volumes about her.
    I know that this is already written on the Book of Lore, not that everyone will read it ofc, but it's super cool because you can realize this without reading it first.
    I just got a little more excited.

    when you put it that way it makes sense, but I still find her voice a bit too cheery, its good but different from what I was expecting so I can easily get used to it
    Glad to see I wasn't the only one thinking that

    You nailed it right on the head, really. Her voice may be unexpected when you look at her general concept, but it's far from unexpected if you just think about the actual character herself. She's not the typical dark magic user, so they lampshaded perhaps a few tropes you thought she was going to fall under. :olliegrin:

    Question: is Tara some sort of good luck charm for Craig and Lauren? She's been in practically everything they've worked on.

    Same with Keith Ferguson, to a lesser extent. (He was in Foster's, SBFF, and WOY.)

    I gotta say, my personal favorite voice is Pom's. I wasn't expecting the accent, but it fits so well and it's so adorable. Fred comes at a close second though.

    I was honestly not expecting Mane6 to get talent like Tara Strong or Keith Ferguson. Those two voices alone have me hyped somethin' fierce! I'm curious to hear what everyone's voices sound like (even if I don't recognize the majority of them), but I'm most anticipating Arizona, Oleander, and Fred. Ari and Fred for obvious reasons, and Oleander because she is best ungulate.

    I definitely agree that her voice isn't as deep as I expected, but I don't think that's a bad thing. I kind of always viewed her as a self-righteous character in that way, though. I'm not sure why.

    HOLY S***! Though it's funny she's voicing Arizona instead of Oleander (which might have cut it a little TOO close).

    A beta player just recently (as in maybe 30 minutes ago, lucky me for doing a timely search) uploaded a YouTube video where they check out all the current character palettes and then mess around in training mode, so you can hear all the current wonderful new voice clips of our little fuzzies. Check it out if you've got time to spare:

    I recently did a stream of it as well. Did they cover eating in this one? I like Pom's the most, even though I thought Ari's was gonna be my fav cause of the animation. lol

    I was thinking of a hidden option that said something like "Turn off real time translation" that would replace the voices with very loud and out of place animal stock sounds. But this works just as well.

    Nah, I didn't want to go through that much trouble. I also forgot to show Pom's bark charge move, but I'll be doing another one when the game is released to show off everything.

    I didn't go through all the blocks and tech. Also, I apparently missed some taunts.

    If you want to hear the eating, 26:02 of my vid for pap and the others start at 40:12

    What voice actor do you have for the predators and the goat though? I'm kinda curious about that....as well as who you picked for the Devourer. The voices all sound pretty awesome all the way, though I notice in the beta video posted that the character model of Tianhuo seems to be reverting back to Arizona for some reason.

    All the animations aren't finished yet so Arizona is just used as a placeholder for those functions.

    Arizona is the fall-back for everything that doesn't have an animation or cardboard placeholder. We've had a lot more random Arizonas in the past. ;)

    Nice to see VAs like Allie Moreno in here with the heavy hitters like Tara. Was Allie a non-union actor? It was mentioned in a stream that non-union actors can use this game to become part of the SAG-AFTRA.

    Shame that Pom's not Kiwi. Is her accent supposed to be Welsh? Because that's supposedly the other place that likes sheep.

    Scottish, I believe. A Gormotti accent is probably too obscure/difficult.

    So I wasn't actually expecting this when I booted up TFH yesterday, and the voices just bowled me over. They're pretty incredible, overall. Each of them has their own flavor that's so much fun to hear coming out. I just wish they triggered a little bit more frequently. I'm a fan of busier voices during play. I blame Guilty Gear and BlazBlue.

    I think there -might- be a setting for that? But I didn't actually dig around. It's also possible they'll trigger more in the final game, and there could be more clips we haven't heard. The Announcer isn't patched into the beta yet, for example.

    There definitely is a setting for that. Voice Cooldown. The number is the number of frames before a character is allowed another voice line since their last one.

    I wondered why Arizona sounded so familiar. Now I know. The cast sounds great.
