What does a Chameleon sound like?

Postby Jawson » Wed May 20, 2015 5:09 am

How do you think each character will sound?

I can't really think of a sound a chameleon would make. :lol:

Like a bear but slightly higher.

I imagine it being a bit like sonic but without the English language.

They only hiss slightly, they do not make any other sound.

I don't think we should be looking at how real chameleons sound because bears don't gulp to communicate and hippos don't burp and fart to communicate...

They're very quiet creatures, by nature. They can hiss and vibrate if angered, squeak if surprised or in pain (the former as well...they don't emote much, not very expressive). In fact, their mood really only alternates between "peaceful", and "pissed". I REALLY hope they don't use the same guy for all the voices again. The voices in Conker were awful and the (hopefully) test voices in the 3-months demo just aren't jelling with the design, imo.

Chris Seavor voiced the conker characters, he's not involved in this game. But Chris Sutherland and Grant Kirkhope ARE and they are the voices of banjo and DK etc

I wouldn't have a problem with it if Laylee was voiced by a woman, though.

The Nintendo Life gameplay video has a few sound effects in it.

We can hear Yooka jumping and Laylee panting while she attempts to fly: https://youtu.be/fY_otBmc6po?t=31s

More of Laylee 'flying' here, followed by Laylee running on top of Yooka: https://youtu.be/fY_otBmc6po?t=47s

I like how they sound. Chris Sutherland voiced both Yooka and Laylee, as well as Banjo and Kazooie.

I wonder what their mumbles will sound like.

Voices don't matter for me as long as the lines make me laugh.

At this point, I expect a bit more out of the voice work where the characters have some more emotion in their voices. If someone is angry then they should actually have an angry tone in addition to capital letters and exclamation points in the text.

Additionally, I've just been playing BK today and I noticed that when Kazooie puts the boots on she makes a rhythmic breath sounds and I though it was synced to the music. Turned out it wasn't but that would be a neat little addition (having some sounds sync to the music).

Chameleons will hiss, I know that.

Its not like a snake hiss, its... more airy.
