Ask @KBeeThatsMe:

Hey! Awesome, I'm so glad you like the game! I've been having fun playing it too. It's super fast-paced, huh? :) Playing Jackie was a really cool experience. It was my first time working under Brittany's direction, but I was super excited because I'd been wanting to work with her. She's a really good director, very good at explaining what she needs from the actor and very easy to play off of and try different things with. I was a little nervous because I didn't know where to go with Jackie's voice at first. I played her as kind of a kid, and then Brittany was like "try going a little older, like teens maybe" and then we were able to find the right groove. :) She and I and the engineer had a lot of fun bouncing ideas around for "pirate-y" things Jackie could say. There's not much dialogue in the game, so it was a short session, but it was a fantastic experience. I hope I get to work with Brittany again! Thanks for asking, and thanks for picking up the game as well!
And of course, thank YOU @BrittanyVoices! <3

Please tell me a story. Subject doesn't matter, but do take your time if you can.

/ When I was
/ A young boy
/ My father
/ Took me into the city
/ To see a marching band--
Okay, okay, just kidding. XD Umm let's see here... One time I was in this traveling children's show called Busytown (it was based on those Richard Scarry books with the cats and the worm and the apple car, you know what I'm talking about?). So the story is about Huckle Cat trying to figure out how to make a cake for Grandma Bear's birthday (Grandma Bear isn't HIS grandma, he burns his house down, it's all very complicated), and at the end they surprise Grandma Bear with a party and the whole town shows up. I played Grandma Bear.
Well, it was a touring show and the actors were responsible for putting the set together and placing all the props beforehand and sometimes things could get a little... scrambled... when we'd travel between venues. The cake in question was made of styrofoam and very fragile so we had to keep it in the front seat of the tour van rather than in the trailer with the rest of the equipment. That meant that it was only a matter of time before we would forget to take it out of the van before a show.
One morning we were performing at an elementary school and one of the actors' parents decided to show up and bring us breakfast, which was very nice. There were all kinds of pastries and muffins and orange juice and lots of great stuff, so we were all very excited to get set up so we could eat before the show. So excited, in fact, that the cake did not make it out of the van and we started the show without realizing it. (Mind you, the cake is kind of the crux of the entire plot of this performance. It is literally all about making a cake for Grandma Bear.) When we finally did realize it, we were about 2/3 of the way into the show and there was nothing we could do. We didn't have run crew or anyone to go out to the van and get it real quick, we were just on our own, up the creek without a birthday cake. We panicked.
We wracked our brains for a solution. Do we pretend we already ate the cake? Do we tell Grandma the cake is coming later? Is the cake invisible? Well, being Grandma Bear myself, I wasn't able to stay for the brainstorming session. I had to go on so that I could be surprised at the cake that may or may not show up. I had no choice but to leave it up to my castmates.
So the scene goes on, Grandma Bear's party starts and I do my thing as normal. Then I hear Huckle Cat say "We made you a cake!" Oh boy, here it comes. What did they come up with? I turn around and to my DELIGHT and HORROR and BEWILDERMENT the actor is holding a piece of cardboard with a CINNAMON ROLL on it! Lucky for us, there was ONE pastry left over from breakfast, and they'd somehow been able to grab it before the scene. My next line was supposed to be "Ohhh, it's beautiful!" but I was so dumbfounded it came out more like "Ohhhh it'pfpfffffffffffffffffff!" I couldn't help it, I broke.
That was the first funny story I could come up with. XD Thanks for asking~

Have you ever witnessed any paranormal phenomena?

There is a haunted house on my grandpa's land. I've been in it a few times. A LOT of creepy things have happened in there. I don't have time to tell everything, but there was one time my cousin was standing on the front porch of the house hanging out with her friend and they left their cell phones in the car. When they got back in the car and checked their phones, one of them had a voicemail. It was a recording of the conversation they'd just had on the porch. SO I DUNNO MAN

Have you ever had a precognitive dream?

Sort of? When I was in high school I dreamed about a teacher I hadn't seen or thought about in years, and the next day I ran into him at a music store. Does that count?
I actually knew a little girl around the same time who had a dream about a piano teacher we knew where he passed away, and the next morning he was dead. That was pretty much the creepiest thing ever.

What's the dead giveaway of a bad actor?

It's hard to explain, but it's a very definite thing. It's when you're watching a performance and you're taken out of the reality of the scene. A good actor makes you believe and check out of your own reality for a little while. If you're not engaged and you have the thought that "oh wait, right, this isn't real, he's just an actor" then it could be because the performance is lacking (or maybe you just aren't paying attention, haha)

Are you a writer? Photographer? Do you enjoy working in an artform besides acting?

My full-time job is as a writer. Granted, that's ADR, I'm not creating a story from scratch. But it can be a great creative outlet! I also do a little creative writing once in a while for funsies, but nothing all that special. Mostly I start projects and never finish them. XD And I am not a photographer or any kind of visual artist. :) I used to play drums and piano a lot though.

If you had to sleep in either a giant burrito or in between two giant slices of French toast, which would you choose?

Okay, there are several factors here. Is there syrup on the French toast? What is in the burrito? How long do I have to sleep?
All things considered, I gotta say French toast, because a burrito is all-encapsulating and I would freak out from being completely closed in. At least with toast it's more of a sandwich-type deal and I can breathe. Hopefully there's no syrup though because that noise is IMPOSSIBLE to get out of hair.
