March 27th 2016: Old Moon games have released a new demonstration video for the upcoming adventure-platformer game GHOST SONG, and more of my work as the conflicted and mysterious figure called Saymund.

 Check out Old Moon's YouTube page for more work-in-progress videos and HERE for the successful Kickstarter campaign. Ghost Song is being developed by the talented Matt White and will be published by Adult Swim games. The game's release is TBD.

 

"One thing that caught me off guard was just how fantastic and interesting the voice acting is. [...] It's so good, and has some pretty great writing too." -Destructoid

March 5th 2016: Upcoming director Ollie Chater invited me to perform in a short film adapted from the 1906 poem The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes, set for a May 2016 release. The production is in association with Falmouth University and the National Trust. Check out the successful Kickstarter campaign HERE.

 I portray the nameless narrator who bears grim witness to a treacherous tryst of forbidden love and jealousy. Click HERE for a production still from the February 26th shoot at The Old Post Office in Tintagel.

 The Highwayman stars Rory Wilton, known for his appearances on Cornish television productions such as Poldark and Doc Martin.

March 4th 2016: The talented volunteers of The Elder Scrolls Renewal Project seek to reinvent the beloved The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in the engine of TES' most recent entry, Skyrim. But to call SKYWIND a mod is like calling the Titanic a boat. It is a total game conversion, equivalent to hundreds of hours of gameplay. The scale of work already put into it is staggering, and there is more ahead before the game's release.

 This latest development video puts an emphasis on recruitment, so if you feel you have the talent and the devotion to aid the production of this highly ambitious non-profit game, please visit the appropriate web links. For my part, I can be briefly heard around the 6:15 mark as Darius, a General in the Imperial Legion.

January 23rd 2016: The folks at IMGN.pro and FOOL'S THEORY, the creative minds behind the upcoming isometric RPG game SEVEN, have asked me to narrate an ongoing series of podcasts that provide some of the game's backstory.  Episodes 1-4 of "Seven: Tales from the Vetrall Empire" are embedded above. There is some considerable talent working on Seven, including former members of CD Projeckt Red (The Witcher series), and the game will be scored by Marcin Przybyłowicz, the man who oversaw The Witcher 3's rousing soundtrack.

November 13th 2015: Following on from my previous interview, 1001UP.COM caught up with me to gauge my opinion on most things Stasis, the challenges and rewards of voice acting and my thoughts on the backlash against the potential voice actors strike. Check the interview HERE.

October 9th 2015: Gaming magazine BITCULTURES.COM have reached out to yours truly for an interview! EEEEK! Check it out HERE. We discuss the lengths I went to for my performance as John Maracheck in Stasis, my preparation for roles and my opinion on #PerformanceMatters

October 9th 2015: As part of the Kickstarter campaign for their Noir point-and-click adventure game NOSEBOUND, developers QUARANTINE INTERACTIVE have published an update highlighting my role as a mysterious French villain named Rovasio. Check it out HERE for a sample of my voice and a brief interview. The campaign has a week to run, and with less than 50% of the $18,000 CAD target achieved, the developers need a strong late push. Please contribute if you like the look of the game.

August 31st 2015: The horror-adventure point-&-click game Stasis by THE BROTHERHOOD has been released on GOG and STEAM. I play protagonist John Maracheck, who awakens on board a deep space vessel 2.7 billion miles from home, in desperate search of his family, as a nightmarish tale of death and genetic experimentation unfurls around him.

 

"The player-character is well-developed, in part thanks to some fantastic voice acting." -Game Rant "This may be the best voice acting I have ever had the pleasure to experience." -Just Adventure "The actor playing John does a fantastic job of portraying his horror at the sights of the Groomlake." -Frugal Gaming

August 5th 2015: Developers LOST SPELL have released the first chapter of their two-part game Hidden, called "On the Trail of the Ancients", on STEAM. This first-person point-and-click game with Lovecraftian horror overtones, focuses on a young archaeologist following a lead that could reveal the existence of a primeval ruling race that predates mankind. The Soundcloud sample above is of a conversation between protagonist Thomas Farrell and Great War veteran Nikolay Petrov, both played by myself.

 

"The voice acting of all of the cast is on point; they convey emotion without over doing it [...] Thomas’s voice acting is captivating." -True PC Gaming

December 3rd 2014: Developers POSTMOD SOFTWORKS have released The Old City: Leviathan on STEAM. The first part of a series, the game eschews traditional combat and puzzle-based game mechanics in favour of narrative and exploration. I play the protagonist Jonah, an isolationist of dubious sanity who roams the substructure of a decaying, war-ravaged city.

 

"The lone voice actor does fine work, carrying the game emotionally and sounding convincingly detached from reality." -Adventure Gamers "Great voice acting by Ryan Cooper whose voice would have made or broken the game and I am glad it was the former." -ASidCast.com "Quality voice acting and a haunting soundtrack that matches the melancholic atmosphere of the game." -Game Ramble

November 4th 2014: Old Moon games have released new WIP videos for the upcoming "Metroidvania" game GHOST SONG, showing off the hand-crafted art style and lonely ambience. In these clips, I portray the curious but enigmatic figure called Saymund, and the demented android doorman, Adam. The game's release is TBC.

 

"I find myself especially intrigued by the little bits of voice-acted character and story on show [...] The bit toward the end of the video with the lonely, demented robo-butler definitely had me by the follicles of my Intrigue Cilia." -Rock, Paper, Shotgun
