When we started working on The Sticker Game in August 2022, we weren’t ready for the amount of work we (mostly Cassi) signed up for. I have very little audio editing experience, and quickly realized that I would need to learn about music rights, producing, and vocal editing. (If you didn’t know, The Sticker Game is an interactive audio drama where you create a journal using your sticker collection.)
I ended up using the audio editing software Cakewalk by Bandlab to create The Sticker Game because it was free at the time, and it was not a cakewalk to figure out. But I’m obviously pleased as punch it worked out.
I was also writing the ding-dang game. Ultimately, It took four months and a death in the family to finish The Sticker Game. My wonderful husband (credited as Joshua Peters) put up with having me as his vocal director as he recorded and re-recorded tracks because I wanted the tone and cadence to be just right. Joshua is not a voice artist by trade, but he did used to cover news for the local NPR station in a small town, so he has some experience when it comes to microphone discipline.
All this to say, we are novices! And yet…!
