John Love, Director of Another Tongue stated:“Our reasons for joining TIGA are two fold, firstly we have fantastic contacts with writers, animators and actors throughout the film, TV, radio and publishing industries and we want to help foster greater communication between these industries and the games industry, something which TIGA have also been driving through the Play Together initiatives.”
“Secondly, our actors simply love working on video games. For actors video games offer a different dimension to their work and a unique challenge. We recognise that games are now so lifelike that voice talent needs to be of the same high standard to deliver a truly unforgettable immersive experience for the player.”
