Vera from Whispers of a Machine

Vera (voiced in English Ivy Dupler) is a cybernetically augmented police detective and the protagonist of Raw Fury’s Nordic noir adventure game Whispers of a Machine. Depending on what traits you emphasize during your run of the game, Vera’s personality varies; sometimes, she will show a soft and nurturing (and most importantly, human) side as she grieves for a lost partner, and other times, she is brusque and technical to a tee. Did she become a cyborg to help fight crime to the best of her abilities, or to escape from unresolved human failures?

Laverne from Day of the Tentacle

For those who never played the mid-90’s LucasArts graphic adventure game, Day of the Tentacle (a sequel to Maniac Mansion), let me be the first to say: you’re missing out, man. This game was LEGIT. A diabolical, disembodied purple tentacle tries to take over the world, portable toilets are equipped for time travel, and there’s a head-banging roadie name ‘Hoagie’. Trippy space-cadet and med-school student, Laverne, is one of the three main characters. She flutters about the screen in a gangly way with her wonky eye and wacky giggle. And eventually…she saves the day. Snag her style – complete with scalpel and nerdy protagonist-pal, Bernard.
