Bioware is to hold open auditions for people to become cast members for future games. The company, which makes RPGs such as KOTOR and Neverwinter Nights, is seeking people aged 18-99. The company is inviting people to come along to a shopping mall in West Edmonton, Alberta, on Friday and Saturday, bringing along a piece of photo id. People chosen to appear in a game will have their head scanned in three dimensions. Chosen participants will have no control over how the image is used in a computer game. But their face could be used in multiple games - so they could be the hero in one, the villain in another and just a merchant in a third.

I would love an oppotunity like that, even if it was for voice overs. Sounds like fun...

Yah, I wish I could go give up the rights to my image so that I could never reap any potential benefits from it in the future... wahoo!!!

Heh, sounds fun in a way but I wonder what people think they'll gain by joining in. They say you won't know where your mug will be used and I can imagine they'll be modified or at least touched up. You probably wouldn't recognize yourself :)

I'd do it if they give me a digital copy of the scan data... it is my head after all.
