Ambient dialogue, BARKS, for the non-playable characters I created for the first person shooter game where the player joins the elite unit of Navy SEALs completing dangerous high-stakes missions.


Master Chief James “Coop” Cooper

Green Team Training Instructor. Former Charlie Team leader but having aged out of active service has stepped down to help train the next generation of Tier One operators. 

Waiting for player to join Green Team briefing:

  • “Buckley! You’re holding us all up. Get your ass in gear and get over here for the briefing”
  • “Get a move on Buckley!”
  • “By all mean Buckley move at a glacial pace”
  • “Buckley, my grandmother moves faster than you do.”
  • “We’re not getting any younger here Buckley.”
  • “Any day now Buckley.”

Master Chief Connor Barnes – Charlie 1

Barnes is highly respected by his fellow officers, particularly in Charlie Team, due to his loyalty, quick thinking, and abilities in the field through many of the other teams find his methods somewhat unorthodox and his manner quite gruff. Barnes is extremely head-strong and stands up for what he believes in.

Introductions:

  • “Master Chief Connor Barnes”
  • “Connor Barnes. You’re with me.”
  • “Master Chief Barnes. I suggest you follow me before you get yourself killed.”
  • “Master Chief Barnes, Charlie 1. We should get moving “
  • “Master Chief Connor Barnes; and who are you?”

Enemy Killed:

  • “Hostiles down, room secure.”

Senior Chief Klaus “Shoe” Davis – Charlie 2
