Voice of John Marston joins Codename Cygnus radio drama app

Codename Cygnus, the interactive radio drama app seeking $11,000 on Kickstarter, now has another noteworthy voice actor joining its cast: Rob Wiethoff. Known for voicing John Marston in Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption, Wiethoff will take on the role of a mysterious man named Lazarus during a planned "sidequest episode." Wiethoff's episode will arrive in September, providing the project is funded.

The app has players listening to 15 to 20-minute episodes, occasionally deciding on the direction the story turns through touch-screen and verbal commands, similar to a choose-your-own-adventure novel. Wiethoff joins the narrator of Bastion, Logan Cunningham on the project. The app has raised $9,062 on Kickstarter so far, and has until Sunday to reach its goal.
