Referring back to the original discussion from 2013: I know who the speech guy is! It's RENE (whoever that may be) Wink

Check this screenshot from the Oh Shit! .cas image from the msxcas archive:

(Not sure from which version/release of the game this .cas dump originates?)

Who was the "voice actor" of MSX game "Oh Shit!" ... and was it the same one who did the other games by ByteBusters/Aackosoft (Snake It, etc.)?

Just being curious here since I have a few names but I'm not sure they did the voices. I guess it was a Dutch guy?

It is me Smile

I knew "Oh, no!" long before "Oh, shit!".

Another memory: The penguin scream was phenomenal. It put me in the same state when I was losing a game. Big smile

I looking for the game that says "Game Over, plus d'énergie!" when a game is over (yes, half in French). I only remember this voice from the game so I can't give more details. Big smile

@ TheNoiseCollector: I'm sorry, must have missed your post back then. I could have a look.

@ gdx: Maybe it could be this:
Or by the same developer?

Would be fun though to know exactly how they recorded and played the digitized speech since they were kind of the only ones doing it back then.

I remember North Sea Helicopter as the first time I encountered their speech feature. I was amazed.
Not only by the ambition of making a working helicopter simulator but also having space left in the RAM to store the samples.

My guess is they used the MSX Tape port as a sampler, just like we did in The Yellow Alert Demo.

I'm guessing René Neuteboom, who also is credited voicing Jet Bomber.

Though in the comments or Ronald van der Putten says it was all him? :RNFF:
