Children of Liberty is a hand-animated, 3D stealth-action game with a focus on historical accuracy. Taking place the night before the Battles of Lexington and Concord, players choose one of four characters that fit their style of play - sneaky, fast, powerful, or balanced - to uncover the details of a conspiracy that could plunge the Colonies into war.
Lantana Games recorded the voiceover for Children of Liberty in a partnership with Reactive Studios (Codename Cygnus). “The talented team at Reactive Studios helped us bring the characters in Children of Liberty to life, in a way we never could have done alone,” said Dan Silvers, game designer on Children of Liberty. “This cast has surpassed our wildest dreams in terms of everything they brought to the table. We can’t wait for you to hear them in action.”
Ashly Burch plays Sarah Ward, the dark and deadly Colonial Ninja; Sarah Elmaleh plays Ally Baker, a stern caretaker and freerunner; Chris Rando plays Joseph, an athletic, bratty warrior; and Sean Chiplock plays Doug, a burly tank and lovable stutterer. They are joined by Geoffrey Campbell as Paul Revere, a silversmith, messenger, and figurehead of the Patriots; Ed Mace as Samuel Adams, a wise politician and leader of the Sons of Liberty; and Cyrus Nemati as Thomas Gage, the Royal Governor as Massachusetts Bay and an expert swordsman.
To celebrate the cast announcement, Lantana Games has released a behind-the-scenes preview of some of the cast in action. It is watchable on the Lantana Games Youtube Channel.
