    About Dangan Ronpa: Makai Mountain

    Hello everyone, and welcome to Dangan Ronpa: Makai Mountain’s official Casting Call! This is a completely fan made game that I will be making in Ren’Py, and to make the game seem more official, I want to have a voice cast for it! So let’s start by going over the basics


    What is DR: Makai Mountain?

    As said above, DR:MM is a Fangan Ronpa game that I’m creating. Once it’s finished, I plan to release it for free online (still unsure of where exactly it will be released).

    It will follow the standard conventions of a Dangan Ronpa game, with sixteen Super High School Level students being forced into a gruesome killing game. You’ll play as two of these students, Maebara Yuuki and Okunote Muda, as they navigate the horrors of Makai Mountain. When murders occur, it’s up to them to solve the case! Get to know the students during your (Ab)Normal Days, and solve mysteries during Abnormal Days!

    Just as the original game is described as psycho-pop and NDRV3 is described as psycho-cool, I came up with a similar aesthetic for this game, which is “psycho-horror”. The locations in this game are strongly inspired by horror movies and games, particularly Until Dawn and Resident Evil 7.


    Wait, we play as two students?

    You sure do! I really enjoyed both of the potential protagonists I created, and I liked the concept of dual protagonists, so I decided to make both of them the player character! Note that this doesn’t necessarily mean that one of them will die, it just means that you’ll get to see two perspectives on cases!


    Will this have everything the main series games do?

    Unfortunately, no. Coding something so you can actually have the characters walk around is a bit above my expertise level, especially considering I’ve never done any coding outside of editing tumblr themes before, and certain trial mini-games, like the Panic Talk Action and Hangman’s Gambit, are not really possible to make in Ren'Py, at least as far as I know. So for that reason, they won’t be appearing, but I'm planning to make the trials as engaging and interactive as possible!


    So you’re using SHSL instead of Ultimate?

    Yep! I’m kind of a Dangan Ronpa purist (read the SomethingAwful translations way back when) and I personally found that calling them “Ultimate” kind of ruins the point of Super High School Level, which is to sound as pretentious and ridiculous as possible. Plus, to me calling someone an “Ultimate” makes it sound like they’re the best at whatever it is they do of anyone, which the game made a point to say isn’t exactly true, they’re just the best at what they do in high school, which is why it’s possible to have repeats of Super High School Levels.


    Are you just voice acting the game?

    Pretty much, yeah. However, another optional thing I’ll have for the voice actors is the chance to participate in an ask blog, where anyone interested can ask the characters a question, which will be responded to in character!


    How much voice acting will this involve?

    We’ll be fully voicing any CGs (ex. the morning and evening announcements, shots of special scenes like Naegi running into Maizono in the first game, etc.) as well as the class trials. For the rest of the game, the voice acting will mainly consist of your standard visual novel noises (grunts, sighs, a name or phrase, etc.)


    How many chapters will there be?

    This game will be just like the main series games as it will consist of a prologue, six chapters, and a brief epilogue!


    Will any casting occur before the deadline?

    Nope! I personally don’t like it when roles are cast before the deadline, as it makes it so people who might be really good as a character don’t have a chance to be cast. For that reason, we’ll be waiting until the deadline specified to cast anybody!


    Can you give me some feedback on my auditions?

    Yeah, of course! If you want feedback, send me a message. I’m far from experienced at giving feedback, but if you want some tips on how to do better, I’ll do my best!


    If you’re the one casting, how come you’re also auditioning for some characters?

    I’m auditioning because I also really enjoy voice acting. I only plan to cast myself if I can’t find anyone for a part I auditioned for by the final deadline, so please don’t feel intimidated! Also, my partner in making this (Lizzie) will be helping t make casting decisions, so it won't be just me deciding on who plays who.


    What will the art look like?

    Notice how there’s a few images that look really good, and some that look ugly as hell? The pretty ones (done by Lizzie, who’s a wonderful artist) are what the actual sprites will look like.

    Here are a few screenshots from the game (note the background shown is not going to be in the final game. This is a placeholder image until we get a background artist)

    Are there any rules for this?

    Just three of them!

    1. Have a decent quality microphone! It definitely doesn’t need to be professional, just good enough so that it doesn’t sound staticy and so I can clearly hear your voice.

    2. Have a Discord account. This is how we’ll be communicating, and how you’ll be turning your lines in.

    3. Get your lines in on time. I’ll be giving deadlines for lines, so please try to get them in by whatever date is specified


    Some last, additional notes!

    Don't feel like your audition has to sound exactly like the description I give. If you think you have a better idea of what a character's voice should sound like, go for it! I might really like what you do!

    If you want to get to know me and our lead artist a little better, feel free to join our public Discord! I would be happy to answer any questions you may have! Also, you can check out our tumblr!
