Grey Matter Email wrote: Gray Matter: Collector’s Edition und Sprecher angekündigt

Gray Matter, eines der meisterwarteten Adventures des Jahres, erscheint zusätzlich in den Standard-Editionen für PC und Xbox 360® auch in einer Collector’s Edition für den PC.

Die Collector’s Edition, verpackt in einem edlen SteelBook™ Jumbo, enthält neben dem Spiel zusätzlich eine Audio-CD mit dem Original-Soundtrack des Spieles sowie diversen Tracks der Band The Scarlet Furies. Zudem finden Gray Matter-Fans in der Metallbox ein edles Gray Matter-Kartendeck (55 Blatt), fünf Postkarten mit kunstvollen Artwork-Motiven sowie ein Poster. Die Gray Matter Collector’s Edition zur PC-Version wird zum Preis von 54,99 € parallel zur Veröffentlichung der Standard-Editionen erhältlich sein.

In beiden in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz erhältlichen Editionen wird Gray Matter als besonderes Schmankerl sowohl in deutscher als auch in englischer Sprache lokalisiert enthalten sein. So haben Adventure-Fans die Möglichkeit, auch die englische Original-Version zu spielen, bei der Jane Jensen persönlich Tonregie führte.

Hochkarätige Film- und Serienschauspieler vertonen die deutsche Sprachversion des heiß ersehnten Adventures Gray Matter, wie der Hamburger Publisher dtp entertainment heute bekannt gibt:
So leiht etwa die als Angelina Buchstab aus der „Lindenstraße“ bekannte Daniela Bette der weiblichen Gray Matter-Hauptfigur Samantha Everett ihre Stimme. Bernd Reheuser, bekannt aus dem ARD-Fernsehfilm „Contergan“ sowie der RTL-Serie „Alles was zählt“, vertont Dr. David Styles, den männlichen Hauptcharakter des Spiels.

Corinna Dorenkamp, bekannt als Synchronsprecherin aus den deutschen Fassungen von TV-Serien wie „Ghost Whisperer – Stimmen aus dem Jenseits“, „Fringe – Grenzfälle des FBI“, „Mad Men“ und „Dragon Ball“, vertont Angela Mulholland eine der Teilnehmerinnen an Styles‘ Experimenten. Auch Harvey Kinderman gehört zu der Gruppe von Studenten, die an den Versuchen zur Wahrnehmungsforschung teilnehmen – ihm leiht Fritz Rott, unter anderem bekannt als Synchronsprecher aus Filmen wie „The Professional – Story of a Killer“, „Die wilden Tage“, „Die Straßenkinder von Belfast“ oder „Vergeltung der Verdammten (Left for Dead)“. Charles Ettington gehört ebenfalls zur Studentengruppe. Seine Stimme spricht Friedemann Thiele ein, der unter anderem im „Tatort“, „Polizeiruf 110“, dem ARD-Fernsehfilm „Leise Schatten“, „Die Stimmen“ und dem für den Oscar für den besten ausländischen Film 2006 nominierten „Merry Christmas“ zu sehen war. Viele weitere bekannte Sprecherinnen und Sprecher runden das Ensemble für die Gray Matter-Vertonung ab.

Not that it's really important, but given that Jane is American and that the game seems to be made overseas (at least from the US's point of view), will it use American or British English? As I said, it doesn't matter, I'm just curious.

You can't imagine how difficult it is to answer your question, DPX!

Let's just say that the version Jules and I got a chance to play mixed the two things, perhaps a bit too much (i.e. sometimes British characters used American English, etc.) but I know for a fact that the person they hired to check the script made a point of using British English whenever appropriate.

It seemed that they were adamant about fixing typos and a few of us were on their butts about that, but there were a few that they didn't think was necessary *elbows Andrea* which still leaves a bitter taste on our tongues, but for the most part, the Americans speak Americaneese and the British speak their good ole English. That was a long sentence.
