Who are you?
Hello! I’m Maddie. I’m a Japanese speaking, voice over obsessive, video game loving nerd
Where does your username come from?
ayafortuna are two of my middle names smushed together. It’s also the name I use as a singer & designer.
What do you do at IGDB.com?
I’m the content specialist & voice over coordinator. I also stay active on the feed & social media.
How did you join this project? What keeps you going?
It all started with me wanting to make a database for voice actors to give them another platform where they could showcase their work. The CEO of IGDB liked the idea and soon it became a reality. Then slowly over time I ended up doing a lot more and now I’m part of it all (which is awesome and so much fun).
The gang, community and love for video games keeps me going. I want us to grow even more and I’m willing to work hard for it!
What are you hoping to see on the IGDB.com site in the future?
I’m really enjoying the feed, so I’m hoping that we can add more things to it to make it even more interesting.
However, since I know what IGDB / we’re planning, I must say that I’m very excited for the future! 🙂
Have you worked with other projects that have to do with games, beyond IGDB.com?
I haven’t worked on anything official, no. However, I’ve done some songs (mostly parody) for various Twitch streamers.
What video games do you play? Any favourite game? Any game you hate?
Right now I’m switching between Stardew Valley, The Walking Dead – A New Frontier and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Some of my favourite games are The Witcher 3, The Last of Us, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Resident Evil 4, Bioshock Infinite, Uncharted 2 & 4 & the Yakuza franchise. I’m also into older games like Monkey Island & Final Fantasy.
A game that I hate? There’s only one I can think of right now = Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. I hated that game. The “You only have so many hours to complete your missions each day” bullcrap made me furious.
Anything you want to tell the community specifically?
I truly love this community. There are so many awesome people here and I love keeping in touch with you guys. I’m hoping we can grow even more and share everything we love about games.
Thank you for the support so far. You guys are awesome and I appreciate you!
