Game Audio Podcast – Episode #55 – MetamorphabetIMG_09ddd81

The simple pleasures of ‘play’ as evidenced by Vectorpark‘s Metamorphabet come into focus as we discuss the process of creating this delightful experience with the development team. A rare deep-dive for the podcast, we talk through: the genesis of the design strategy, the involvement & role of audio, and how VO helped shape the identity. Discovered along the way is Anton’s involvement (through FreeSound.org) in one of VectorPark’s earlier titles Windosill.

GameAudioPodcast2012_08Game Audio Podcast – Episode #54 – Beep Education

We are joined by Dr. Karen Collins to talk about Education, the Beep Documentary, and the continuing saga of world-traveling after a successful Kickstarter. Beep composer Leonard Paul talks about his role in the documentary, his roots in Procedural Audio and The School of Video Game Audio. While Damian wraps his head around first meeting the two of them in 2006. There will also be a tale of death-metal roosters, Anton and Pinar’s review of the Hiss and a Roar Friction library plus TonSturm’s Explosions Library, and DB will drop another of her delightful VO vignettes. An email from Alex Quartermain covers something special.

Catching up on the last day of GDC15 with friends of gameaudio. Celebrating the gang award winners, gong over the talks of the day before. Certainly the vibe was still excited. Pretty impressive after such a full on week.
