Voice-Actor Spotlight: Cammie Middleton Radiates Joy


Cammie Middleton has lent her talented voice to our clients' games since 2019, and her impressive credits include Jam City/Netflix's Wild Things and Super Gaming's Jane Austen Solitaire: Pride & Prejudice. She's also a jazz and blues vocalist, a stand-up comedian, and an actor for both stage and screen. Cammie and our founder Lisa Brunette go waaaaay back, the two of them having met in the 1990s through their work as volunteers for an environmental group. Cammie was kind enough to share her thoughts on work, laughter, and a unique get-rich-quick scheme (involving duck-sized horses)!

What do you enjoy most about being a voice actor?

It is one of the few professions where I can legally do my job while wearing pajamas and no makeup. That's just heaven!

What's your favorite thing about doing VO for games?

There's something intimate about doing VO for video games. The player and the characters become one. They have this relationship that becomes embedded in the game itself. You kind of leave a part of yourself––or a piece of you gets to live––inside the game. Forever. It's pretty neat!

What's your VO "dream role"?

I would love to be the voice of God... Morgan can't do it forever!

How do you like to spend your personal time?

I like to spend my personal time laughing. I don't care where or how, but laughter keeps me young and happy. It reflects in my heart, my work, and onto others around me.

Would you rather fight a horse-sized duck or 25 duck-sized horses?

Oh my! 25 duck- sized horses! But I would fight them with laughter. Really? How cute is that? I know I would definitely be rich, because every little kid would want to have their own duck-sized horse! Giddy up, Quackers!

What's your favorite movie or TV show? Why?

My new favorite movie is Everything Everywhere All At Once. It's like someone cracked my brain open, recorded my thoughts, and turned it into a soundtrack. Filmmaking at its best!

Voice-Actor Spotlight: Andy Mack's Endless Sense of Wonder


Among the Brunette Games team, Andy Mack is admired for his uncanny ability to voice humans, dogs, and everything in between. He's one part of our roster of incredible voice actors, and he agreed to let us pick his brain on voice acting, his own pup, and more.

What do you enjoy most about being a voice actor?

I enjoy the variety of being a VO actor the most. Instead of soul-crushing cubicle work, I get to be a cowboy bandit and then a medieval wizard and then an annoying robot sidekick—so the diversity of roles in a given day keeps me laughing!

What's your favorite thing about doing VO for games?

My favorite thing about doing VO for games is feeding my inner child who still wants to play games all day. I don't have much time to play games anymore, but I'm still connected to them through work, so there's still a great connection to that sense of wonder.

What's your VO "dream role"?

My dream role would either be for a Final Fantasy entry (Final Fantasy X is still my favorite game of all time) or a Disney-related game since I grew up with the company and am a former cast member.

What's a surprising/interesting fact about you?

I was obsessed with the movie Rad (1986) as a kid and started racing BMX when I was eight years old. I raced multiple times a week and even qualified for Nationals!

Do you have any pets?

I sure do have a pet. He's a wonderful old basset hound/pug mix named Kenny Powers. Here's his recent Halloween picture where he is clearly ashamed of his parents...


What's your favorite movie or TV show? Why?

I mentioned Rad earlier, and it's tied with Back to the Future for my favorite movie. However, my favorite TV show is It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. "The Nightman Cometh" and "High School Reunion" episodes are two of the funniest things I've ever seen, and the characters are such narcissistic psychopaths—in the best way possible. Plus, who doesn't want/need a little Danny DeVito in their lives?

Employee Spotlight: What Sara Hardin Thinks Is the Cat's Meow

For this Employee Spotlight, we encouraged Sara Hardin to take a break from cuddling her cats to give us her thoughts on work, free time, and hobbies galore!

What's your favorite thing about working for Brunette Games?

I can't rave enough about the team I get to work with. Creative people aren't always the most gracious when it comes to having their work critiqued, but my coworkers are experts at giving and receiving feedback. Reviews and edits are a huge part of what we do, and it would be so much more difficult with less patient peers. We're also lucky that we share many common interests, which makes small talk so much less excruciating for a group of introverts!

What's your favorite thing about being a game writer?

Does the fact that I get to call myself a game writer count? In all seriousness, I couldn't imagine a better fit for myself, even as I continue to learn and grow. I love putting myself in the players' shoes and experiencing the story from all angles as it develops. It's such a unique position to be in, and I hope to never take it for granted.

What do you like to see in games as a player?

Complex characters! Even better, a complex antagonist. Villains are so interesting when they're multi-faceted and not just moustache-twirlingly, cackingly evil (though that does have its place). That being said, it's a challenge to craft an interesting villain—how do you make someone sympathetic without endorsing their twisted actions? It's a delicate balance to strike, which is why I love seeing it done well. Olgierd von Everec from The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone, Mads Mikkelsen's portrayal of Hannibal Lector, and Breaking Bad's Walter White are a few favorites that come to mind.

Do you have any pets? Can we see a picture?

My husband and I have two cats, Calcifer (Cal) and Moose. They're our whole world. Here's one of my favorite pictures of them cuddling on my work desk:


What kind of game character would you be?

I get a lot of  slack from my friends about how I always choose to be a ranger in any RPG that gives me the option. So... I'd be a ranger. I'd hang out with and tame woodland creatures, make an intricate shelter high in the trees à la Swiss Family Robinson, and whittle little wooden figurines for my friends. What's not to love?

How do you like to spend your personal time?

In addition to playing mobile, Nintendo, and PC games, I'm also an avid reader. I've hit a personal record this year of 40 books read in 2022–something that feels incredible as a slow reader! My book club is full of wonderful women, and we meet monthly for book chitchat and snacks. I also have this habit of picking up random hobbies every so often to see what sticks. Most recently, I've dabbled in knitting, crocheting, watercoloring, and jigsaw puzzling... and I start a stained glass class this week! "Jack of all trades, master of none" feels relevant.
