Tama’s Challenge (Indie RPG inspired by Takeshi’s Challenge and other media)

Project Overview

Tama’s Challenge is an indie RPG being produced by a single developer who clearly lacks the voice range to do this themselves. The name and premise was inspired by an ancient game for the famicom called Takeshi's Challenge, where a Japanese businessman quits his job and goes on an incredibly wacky and dangerous adventure all while being hunted by the yakuza. I decided to put my modern spin on the concept.

Currently I’m looking for voice talent, although in the future I will be looking for an artist/animator. Named voice roles will be paid at a flat rate of $100, while additional roles will be paid at a rate of $25 largely due to how little dialogue they have (NPCs and characters like that.) Payment will be done through PayPal. It is recommended that you include your discord handle with your audition so I can contact you should you be selected for the role you audition for.

Each audition will have 1 comedic line, 1 neutral line, and 1 serious line in that order.

Latest Updates

  • Extended deadline PLUS NEW TALENT NEEDED

    hey all, now that primary casting for voice talent is complete I’m opening new roles for artists/animators who would like to assist in production of this game.
