Sikth (opens in new tab)’s Mikee Goodman and Periphery (opens in new tab)’s Mark Holcomb have both spoken about their involvement in ZAUM’s new PC game Disco Elysium.

The pair lend their voices to characters in the open world noir-detective game, which was released last week.

And with Disco Elysium garnering high praise across the board, including from our friends over at Games Radar and PC Gamer, Goodman and Holcomb have talked about what it was like to be involved with one of the most critically acclaimed games of 2019.

Vocalist Goodman says: “The last few years casting, directing and producing voiceovers on this game has been an awesome experience! I loved it. The writing and art in this game is amazing, so unique and interesting. 

“ZAUM are such an inspiring games studio. I also play the characters which are in the head of the main player as he wakes up from a three-day drug and alcohol fuelled hangover! I stay with him throughout. People will recognise the tone of Ancient Reptilian Brain. Amazing game and an amazing cast of voices too.” 

Holcomb voices the characters of Manana and Tommy in Disco Elysium, with the guitarist admitting he’s a "role-playing game nerd at heart," and adds: “It's one of the most unique, original role-playing experiences I've ever played, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to be cast in the game.”

Disco Elysium is now available to purchase digitally on Steam (opens in new tab) and GOG (opens in new tab). Check out a trailer below.
