This game is much better when someone “interprets” Theo and gives a voice to his internal dialogue. We’ve often discussed what he would sound like if he could talk. The current consensus is something like Ray Winstone, orĀ  a deep London loveable gangster type voice. You know, something like:

“ello sunshine, got any kibble?”
