Trashtalk is the language spoken by the mutants in Nuclear Throne.
Trashtalk is being developed by Joonas Turner, who also does the voice acting in the game for all of the characters except for Yung Venuz (Doseone ), Rogue (Danielle McRaven), Frog (Jukio Kallio), Rebel, and the Female I.D.P.D. (Isa And aka Chisaleya).
