What do you listen to when working on this game

October 25, 2010

This question is easy, I listen to the game. Probably the most important but overlooked aspect of a video game is the sound. Our sound designer, Chase Ashbaker brings the game to life. Watch an action movie with no volume and see how you feel about it. Then crank it up and you notice that it just pulls you into the experience. Our goal is to make the person playing feel like they are awesome. Sound is a huge aspect of that. In addition to the sound effects of explosions and breaking glass, the songs have to fit with the gameplay as well. Lucky for us we work with Activision who have made a few contacts with their Guitar Hero franchise. So getting good songs is pretty easy.
