Thank you, sir :)
Yes, Mortville Manor had voice synth but that sounded very unclear and robotically which made each spoken line quite hard to 'decypher' as player.
The nowadays 'natural voices' synths are pretty cool, but still sound a bit off here and there. So therefor VA would be the best to replace the original voice synth Mortville Manor used.
So, if for some reason I can't find enough voice actors/actresses, I'll stick with text only indeed.

Thank you, sir :)
I simply have no experience in creating speech synthesis voices. I've also no idea if there's software available to do so.
Finding voice actors/actresses is indeed very hard. Once I have the audio, putting it all together isn't hard though, I've been an audio editor on several commercial games in the past working with voice actor/actress audio lines, clean up and edit and get it all in the game.
For Windows, install D-Fend (which comes with a dosbox installation),
Drag 'n drop the file princes.exe into D-fend,
Finish the configuration setup and double click Princess.
Works like a charm. Nice little mod!
Thanx for the info, v1.2 is now up containing the following changes:
- music was still audible when set to 0.
- pressing ESC during splash logo crashed the game
- character movement is again set faster
Several games, like this one, are originally only available using a foreign (non-English) language. This one is Polish of origin.
That might be why many people don't know of them and that's also one of the reasons I'm remaking them into English versions: to make them wider available (and often improve them slightly too) :)
It's surprising how many good but non-English games there are from the late 80s up to the first half of the 90s retro era.
Available for Windows & Linux (freeware)
This is a trivia party game containing 288 different quotes from the TV series.
It's up to you to guess per round by who of the five shown Futurama characters a shown quote was said.
There's 10 round per game, and it can be played from 1 up to 10 players.
Contains a lot of audio taken from the TV series.
What are you waiting for, a kiss good-bye?! Start quizzing already!
Good to see you're enjoying my game!
As for the name of the cultist leader: while in the Crypt, there's a clue in the book (which you seem to have found):
'I found a way to open the door. they asked me my name. I felt my end approaching. but then a writing came to my memory. The one in the north...'"
The last line refers to a north(ern) room. There are two northern rooms in the game, you'll have to go to the North Room close to the prison.
There's a book you might want to check...
