We just lately realized that Nicolas Cage is enjoying a brand new survivor in asymmetrical aggressive horror game Lifeless by Daylight, and as we speak Cage himself confirmed up on stage on the Summer time Game Fest showcase to speak about his function (at about 47:30 within the embedded video above, which ought to begin there routinely).

“I play this heightened, exaggerated model of a movie actor named Nic Cage,” he informed Summer time Game Fest host Geoff Keighley to laughs from the viewers, “and he will a location pondering he is making a film, and as a substitute he wakes up in The Fog. And in The Fog he is surrounded by crows and serial killers, and it is reasonably amusing.”

As for why Cage selected to seem in his first videogame, he had a number of causes. One, he appreciated that Sadako of The Ring novels and films seems within the game, and he likes that, for the survivors, it is a cooperative “bonding expertise.” He is obtained a fan within the household, too, and mentioned that he noticed performing for the game as an “journey.”

“Somebody crucial in my household is a Lifeless by Daylight fanatic, and that actually put the hook in—hah—pun meant,” mentioned Cage. “See, Lifeless by Daylight to me was a chance to department out. I’ve by no means been invited to this house earlier than, and I am all the time searching for new adventures, so this to me was, ‘Wow, I can meet an entire new viewers and department out and go on this Lifeless by Daylight journey.’ It took me nothing however a break up second to say sure.”

I discover it onerous to imagine that nobody has ever requested Cage to lend his likeness and voice to a videogame, however perhaps? He appears to have loved the duty, anyhow. My favourite Cage remark from his look was his standpoint on recording the voice strains for his first game character.

“See, I need you to know whenever you’re enjoying the Nic Cage survivor, I need you to know that we’re one, that we’re fused,” mentioned Cage. “So it was essential to me that every thing I do, every thing I say, from the scream to the grunt, all the way down to essentially the most minimal, exasperated expression of a sigh, no matter it’s, it is my voice, in order that we’re fused.”

The Nicolas Cage survivor will probably be out there to fuse with on July 25, or earlier on Lifeless by Daylight’s PC take a look at server.
