Following the success of Esper, their first VR title they announced some well-known voice talents that they were working with on their newest title. See my previous article for the details on the voice actors.
During EGX 2015, Coatsink announced the title of their newest VR game will be Esper 2, a continuation of the original Esper storyline.
About Esper 2
“Reprising your role from the original game, become an agent of ESPR, an organisation setup to deal with the recent outbreak of telekinetic powers among citizens. Travel to exotic locations; solve puzzles, discover secrets, foil nefarious plots, and fall unconscious multiple times. Interact with a dynamic array of new characters voiced by notable actors Nick Frost, Lara Pulver, and Sean Pertwee, who join Eric Meyers, the esteemed vocal talent from the original game.
Join the ranks and travel the world in a firstperson puzzle adventure designed especially for VR, while trying not to aggravate the game’s characters in the process…because they’ll let you know if you do. Good luck.”
I wanted to give a special shout out to Coatsink as they used my voice actors header image (see below) in one of their press releases. THANK GUYS! That means a lot!
I had added the VR part to their logo and their CEO, Tom Beardsmore loved it when their PR rep showed him. Makes me feel accomplished as freelance artist.
Also, before I forget, check out these awesome screenshots from Esper 2.
“Coatsink was founded in late 2009 by Tom Beardsmore and Paul Crabb. Since then the team has grown into a 25 strong team of developers. Coatsink currently has multiple titles in development, including Shu and SuperGlad. Previous releases include Esper, Chip and Pinch/Pinch 2.”
