The Long Dark—a Canadian first-person survival adventure currently in its last week on Kickstarter—is getting a Canadian voice-acting star, as Hinterland Games has announced that the versatile Jennifer Hale will be joining the cast in a “pivotal role.”

Hale’s probably best known as FemShep—the female incarnation of Mass Effect’s Commander Shepard—but the Newfoundland native has also shown off her range by portraying a diverse array of game characters over the years, including the enigmatic Rosalind Lutece in BioShock Infinite and Ophelia in Brütal Legend. Amusingly enough, one of her co-stars on The Long Dark will be Mark Meer (as an Edmonton native, also a Canadian), the voice of the male Commander Shepard.

With five days remaining, the PC/Mac/Linux project is currently at 83 percent of its goal of $200,000 Canadian (around $192,400 in U.S. dollars). Hinterland compares the experience to post-apocalyptic games like Fallout 3 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, and while those might seem like lofty goals, the Vancouver Island–based studio has some impressive talent at its disposal, including Raphael van Lierop (Far Cry 3 narrative director) Alan Lawrance (former lead designer at Volition), and Hokyo Lim (art director on The Unfinished Swan), among others.

This isn’t the first time Hale’s lent her pipes to a Kickstarter game project. Last year, she joined the erstwhile voice of Metal Gear’s Solid Snake, David Hayter, in Camouflaj’s successful République Kickstarter—led by Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots assistant producer Ryan Payton—a stealth-action title set to release on iOS, PC, and Mac late this year.
