Side was excited to work with Frictional Games on SOMA, the follow-up to their award-winning Amnesia games.
Side’s Performance Director Damien Goodwin directed over 20 actors for the game, bringing the tense, mysterious world to life and helping to deliver the engaging story which is being praised as much for its performances as it is for the nerve-shredding scares. You can see what some reviews had to say and the story trailer below.
“The amount of high quality dialogue (in terms of both voice acting and writing), is one such delightful revelation…Impressive writing and voice acting throughout1”
“It certainly helps that SOMA‘s voice cast sells every character’s experience – from your protagonist, to his guide, to the “human” robots you encounter.2”
“The events are replayed by a diverse, believable cast with voices you’ll come to recognize and communicate with in interesting ways.3”
