Playtonic Friends Reveals Voice Actors for Elsie

Meet The Guardians! Playtonic Friends Reveals Voice Actors for Upcoming Rogue-Like Action Platformer Elsie

Embrace the chaos…coming to PC and consoles this summer

Burton-on-Trent, UK – 25th April 2024. Publisher Playtonic Friends and developer Knight Shift Games are thrilled to announce the star-studded voice actor cast of The Guardians, the powerful, high-tech androids from their upcoming game Elsie.

Releasing for PC and consoles in summer 2024, Elsie is a technicolor, hyperkinetic, rogue-like action platformer filled with procedurally generated levels, an army of robots to blast through, and a wide range of items and weaponry to make each run as unique as possible.

Who are The Guardians?

Driven to change the world Dr Grey engineered a team of high-tech androids with the power to prevent natural disasters. These Androids were known as “The Guardians”

Their true power lay in the Arclight Core, an energy source that allows them to bend the elements at their will. The world rejoiced in a new age of peace and safety…however this peace was short lived, as one day without warning or explanation, The Guardians disappeared.

Winds whipped, seas surged, and an army of robots laid siege to Dr Grey’s home, the city of Neotoño.

Amidst the threat of more disasters and attacks Dr Grey forged one final android…Elsie: built like none before her, she must find the Guardians and save planet Ekis.

A playable demo for Elsie will be showcased on the Playtonic Friends stand at WASD Live from 25 – 27 April at the Truman Brewery, London. Drop by the stand to meet the team and get some hands-on time with Elsie and other Playtonic Friends titles. Stay tuned for more Voice Actor reveal announcements soon!
