    About Knights on a Starless Night (work in progress title)(visual novel)(18+)


    Knights on a Starless Night is a visual novel game currently being developed for PC and PC only. This VN will contain adult elements so only VA's aged 18 and up will get accepted. By auditioning for this project, you're agreeing that you're an adult. If we find out that you're under the age of 18 at any point during development, you will be fired and your lines WILL be scrapped. While the primary focus of the story isn't necessarily on the adult scenes of the novel, they are prevalent enough to warrant an age restriction for the members of the voice cast.


    Fenzu is a young man who has idolized the knights of Morzlundt, a highly decorated force of knights serving the citizens of Morzlunt, since early childhood. One dark, starless night, his village of Altorz gets attacked while he's in the surrounding woods with his stepfather, whom is also the chief of his village. While practically begging him to join the village's soldiers in the fray, he gets cast aside by his stepfather, who fears for Fenzu's safety.  His tremendous combat skills soon become clear to his father when the defiant youth picks up a branch an helps fend off the attacking bandits.

    Recognizing his potential as a future knight, his father sends the now 18 year old Fenzu to Morzlundt's capital to attend the Morzlundt Knight's Academy. Many adventures await him on his way to and at the academy.

    The job & payment

    A small team of developers has already been assembled to work on this project (a project lead, programmer, background artist and character/sprite artist) and we're now looking for a handful of voice actors/actresses to voice the lively cast of characters in this visual novel.

    The budget for this game, unfortunately, isn't that big. But we have enough of a budget to give a small monetary compensation for the work everyone does. For the voice cast, everyone gets paid an amount of $50 per 2500 words recorded (not counting retakes of certain lines).  Those who have to record adult (18+) lines will get paid double when they record the adult scenes ($100 per 2500 words recorded). We work with a "half now, half later" payment plan, where we pay you half the funds before you start recording and the latter half after you've handed in your lines and they've been approved by us.

    Payment is handled through Paypal.


    We are currently in the pre-production phase of the project. Code has been written to put all the systems in place for the character dialogue boxes, menus and all that good stuff.  Work on the character sprite art and backgrounds will commence at the start of next month (July) and part of the script for a handful of characters has already been written.

    This unfortunately means that key art for the characters isn't available yet, but we already have the general personality and voice type for each character that's listed on this audition page mapped out. Art of the characters will become available as they're completed.

    [August 14 update]

    So the deadline for the first round of auditions has come and gone. I would personally like to thank everyone who participated in this first round of auditions. And with that, I would also like to offer an apology for the delayed response as well. An update should have been posted to this page as soon as the audition ended, but rest assured that these two weeks of silence has been put to good use on our end and that this won't happen again.

    Now, what have we been up these past two weeks? Well, we have been hard at work listening to each and every audition to decide which VA fits what character. With a whopping total of 93 auditions, this task proved to be somewhat difficult, especially because so many of you really knocked it out of the park with your auditions. Truly, picking one VA for each character proved to be a difficult task. After two weeks of deliberating over our choice, we arrived at the following casting decision for these two characters:

    Cellis = VOWhitneyWilliams
    Ester = Sarielle

    Congratulations to both of you for snatching the roles of our first two heroines!

    We are still in the process of picking an actor for our male lead, so we humbly ask for a little more patience from the people that auditioned for the role of Fenzu. As for the voice actors/actresses that came close to booking one of these roles, during our reviewing process we stumbled across a handful of you who, while not a perfect fit for any of these roles, your auditions left enough of a good impression that we decided to either create a character based on the voice you used in your audition or keep your name in the hat for future auditions related to this project.

    Those of you who will have a character created specifically for them to voice will be contacted by me privately through the Casting Call Club once your character is ready and once the pool of potential VA's, who haven't been cast yet for this project grows large enough, we will switch to a private casting call for future roles.

    Again, thank you all for your interest in this project and for your time reading this update!

    [August 15 update]

    Thank you, everyone, for your patience! After giving all the potential VA's for Fenzu another listen, we finally found our guy!

    Fenzu = nkostecka95

    Congratulations on snatching the role for Fenzu!

    With the first three characters out of the way, we can focus on updating this audition page with the next few roles. Meanwhile, the VA's casted for these first three roles will be contacted with further information regarding their participation in this project.

    Thank you for your time!

    [August 15 update]

    Now that the first three VA slots are filled, we have finally uploaded an additional two roles that need to be voiced! Another character will be added around the weekend, so keep an eye out for that.

    Good luck, everyone!

    [August 19 update]

    Grace, Fenzu's little sister, has been added to the list of available roles!

    [September 8 update]

    Vasco, the villain of the story has been added to the list of available roles!

    [September 22 update]

    The second round of auditions has ended. We are now in the process of reviewing all auditions for this next batch of characters. Chances are that some of these characters might join the third batch of characters for the third round of auditions, since fewer people auditioned for this batch compared to the previous one and the team can't agree on a VA for some of the characters.

    Also, some of you might have noticed that two of the characters have potraits available now. That's because some designs have been finalized. The results will be posted on this page in the next 2 days, so we ask you all to be patient.

    Again, we would like to thank everyone that auditioned for this project!

    [September 24 update]

    Thank you all, again, for your patience! After listening to this round of auditions, we have found our VA's for two of our characters.

    Morden = 2for4bitz
    Grace = HarpieQueen18

    Congratulations to both of you for landing your respective roles!

    Unfortunately, we felt like none of the voices really fit Volga and Vasco. So both these characters will be put into the third round of auditions, which starts right now.

    [October 12 update]

    Another character, Maxime, has been added to the list of available roles.

    [November 7 update]

    After about a week of reviewing every single auditions for the final three characters, the development team has made its decision.

    Volga = Shondar
    Vasco = oppletron
    Maxime = emmykat voices

    Congratulations to all three of you!

    Please keep in mind that this doesn't mean that we have our full cast of voice actors yet. There are a few upcoming roles for which we might need another actor/actress or two. I would like to take a minute to explain how part of the audition review process goes.

    Whenever the deadline for an audition passes, we give every single audition a listen. There are times where a certain voice actor has a really good voice, which doesn't fit a character. Rather than outright rejecting these voice actors, we build up a small database of these potential new members of the voice cast. This "VA pool", as we like to call it, will then be approached in the future for a private round of auditions for our future characters. Some might even get a character written specifically for them if we find their voice inspirational enough (this has happened before and is still very much a possibility right now)!

    I will now contact every cast member with further details on the project, including the scheduling for the different recording dates, etc. Those who have been put into the VA pool will be contacted to confirm whether they'd be interested in participating in the future private casting calls. If we don't receive a reply within a month (31 days) of sending our message, we will assume that you have no further interest in participating in this project and will remove you from the VA pool.

    With that said, though, the first three public rounds of auditions are at an end. We have all the voices that we need for the early version of the game. Whether another public audition will take place will have to be decided when most of the aforementioned voice actors in the VA pool have been cast.

    On behalf of the development team, I would like to thank everyone for participating in these auditions and I wish you all the best of luck with your future endeavors!
