In a game where char­ac­ters are rep­re­sented by golden orbs, there is a limited num­ber of ways for them to ex­press their emo­tions and in­tent. Strong voice act­ing is there­fore key, and The Chi­nese Room knows it. “We had stunning voice ac­tors,” Pinch­beck says. “We were so lucky.” And there’s a rea­son th­ese vel­vety voiced Brits chat­ting over a back­ground cho­rus of bird­song sounds so familiar: “Yes, there were a cou­ple of peo­ple from The Archers in there, the cream of Bri­tish ra­dio and TV drama.” While hardly house­hold names, th­ese are vet­eran ac­tors, skilled in de­liv­er­ing the re­quired emo­tional pay­load with pin­point ac­cu­racy through speech alone.
