Apply for this job
Larian Studios needs an Internal Voice Director for our Guildford Studio. We have 25 years of experience creating critically acclaimed role playing games and pride ourselves on our excellent storytelling — our most recent title, Divinity: Original Sin 2, has won over 160 awards (including the BAFTA for Best Multiplayer Game) and our next game, Baldur’s Gate 3, is currently in Early Access.
The Internal Voice Director will align with our Performance Director to make our voice over and mocap pipeline cohesive. There is a heavy overlap between our voice over and mocap pipelines aimed toward capturing a holistic representation of what actors bring to our story. 
This is an opportunity to meaningfully impact and define the voice direction at Larian.

  • Define the dramatic voice of our characters and provide creative vision for on-site voice directors

Ideally, you:

What We Offer

  • An open, collaborative environment where ideas are welcome and encouraged
  • A managerial team consisting of highly experienced game developers at the top of their fields
  • Sharing hobbies and passions with likeminded colleagues
  • Inclusive environment with many activities organized by the studios or the employees
