'Still Wakes the Deep' Reveals Its Voice Talent - Trailer

by Rainier on May 21, 2024 @ 8:58 a.m. PDT

Still Wakes the Deep is a first-person, narrative horror set on an off-shore oil platform.

Built in Unreal Engine 5, Still Wakes the Deep is a narrative horror where you must navigate the perilous, sinking oil rig they call home, with nothing more than their wits to protect them from whatever has entered the rig, and the roiling sea below.

You are an off-shore oil rig worker, fighting for your life through a vicious storm, perilous surroundings, and the dark, freezing North Sea waters. All lines of communication have been severed. All exits are gone.

All that remains is to face the unknowable horror that’s come aboard.

Leading the cast as main character Cameron "Caz" McLeary is Alec Newman, an accomplished Glaswegian actor with a long history of video game performances. Cyberpunk 2077 fans may recognise him as the voice behind Adam Smasher in both the game and anime.

"The thing was so well written, and so well-conceived, that I don't recall having very long conversations about what Caz should sound like," says Newman in the mini documentary, discussing what struck him about Still Wakes the Deep. "With this, you can feel the writing, you can feel the characters."

Also joining the cast is Neve McIntosh as Suze, Caz's wife, who can be heard in the Still Wakes the Deep release date trailer.

  • Alec Newman as Caz

  • Michael Abubakar
  • Clive Russell
  • Shaun Dooley
  • Stewart Scudamore
  • Nicholas Boulton
  • Duncan Pow
  • Sandy Batchelor
  • Alan Turkington

The voice cast was directed by Kate Saxon and Damian Goodwin. The mini documentary was recorded at SIDE Studios in London, and at The Chinese Room's Brighton studio.

Still Wakes the Deep is coming to the PC (Steam and Epic), PS5, Xbox Series X|S on June 18, 2024. Still Wakes the Deep will also launch with Xbox Game Pass for console and PC.
