    I know what's getting cranked down to zero next time I fire up the game, then.

    I like the fact that Paprika voice lines are a bunch of giggles, raspberry and other noises. It fits with the portrayal of her by her fellow alpaca as an force of nature that can't be reasoned with.

    Finally got around to listening to all the voices in the video and I like them overall. The ones I'm most iffy about honestly are Oleander, Fred, and Velvet, but I think I can get used to them over time. Otherwise, I think the casting is great. I'm curious if the voice-overs will be used in the story mode in some way. I assume they will be, but we won't know until next week (and later) I guess.

    Might be a bit late to say this, but actually

    Character Voice Actress/Actors Speculation

    I called it, and I'm so glad they went this route.

    EDIT: Realized that link was from the backer's forum, it's basically a post saying that I though Paprika would work best as a mute character.

    Anyone found Pom's accent the best thing ever?
    We know the protagonists, I can't wait to see the bad guys or better say, the carnivores. (also, aren't Pom's dogs carnivores too?)

    Dang yes her Scottish-Lite accent is the cutest thing I've ever heard.

    Also: Yes, indeed they are carnivores, and she's having quite a time trying to explain that to the rest of the hilarious sheepkin. You should read the Book of Lore entries on the main website sometime, if you're curious about how the sheep got a hold of those doggos.

    I'm laughing because of Fred's introduction after getting out of the book. "Hello, I'm Fred" *whack*

    Been meaning to give my feebdack on the voices for quite a while. It sucks that I only remember what I want to type while I'm working:

    Paprika only making noises comes as a surprise, but at the same time........not. Her Book of Lore made it clear that something was up with her, as she had to have some way to communicate basic things to her tribemates, even if she was just trying to m̶u̶r̶d̶e̶r̶ love them. I'd been fairly convinced otherwise though, by, and don't ask how I remember this far back, her Indiegogo profile which states that "her declarations of adoration will burst your eardrums". "Declarations of adoration" certainly implies spoken language, but in the magical world of Foenum you can never really be sure. Either way, I'm glad they went in this direction as it only adds fuel to my theory that she used to be a "normal" Alpake, but she was driven insane by the conditions of the Alpake Highlands or possibly some other event. She makes trilling and smooching noises and we see her tongue in one of her normal animations, so we can take refuge in the fact that at least she wasn't...."silenced"....by her disgruntled tribemates at some point in the past. I'll speak (haha) for the other characters in another post.
