My Name is Olivier Girardot, I am a music composer and a sound designer.
I am working with a friend and great artist Gero Doll on a VR project called DreamArtVR. Gero is doing all the design and programming, while I am creating the Sound.
Gero has by far the hardest part. Plus he is not a programmer so he has been struggling a lot to achieve this first level, and there are some imperfections, but I think he did a great job.
We would very much appreciate if you could try the demo and give us your honest opinion. We know there are a lot of things to improve, but we hope we are on the right path to create something unique, and interesting for the players.
We are also hoping to get some financial help to finish this game and hire a programmer.
We are looking forward to reading your impression on this game.
Here is the video teaser:

Thank you for your time !
Today I want to share with you my latest Sound Effect video: how to create a fire sound effect without recording an actual fire:
If you are looking for a sound designer for your virtual/augmented reality or video game projects, don't hesitate to contact me !
A quick reminder about the incredible Christmas Deal :
Dreamart VR is the direct interpretation of a dreamworld. The player resonates with the mere subconscious thoughts of the virtual character.
The game consists of multiple scenes. Each Scene is directly or indirectly correlated to the previous scene, thus it unfolds the potential of a deep non linear VR experience.

Hi there community !
I have this game project that I have been thinking about for a while now. But I am not a game developer, I am a sound designer. My idea, which is not my idea actually, because it has already been done before, is to create a video game totally based on sound. I guess that would be an audio game. But not really because I am thinking of adding some visuals in there, although extremely minimal.
The thing is, that I have no knowledge of game conception. But I have some ideas for the story and the gameplay. I don't want to go into details here and there are plenty of things I need to sort out first anyway.
But here are a few questions:
- Which game engine / software would be the more adequate to create this kind of project ?
- Would a sound designer like me, who doesn't know a thing about programming, be able to create such a game alone (with a lot of tutorials) ?
- Would someone out there be interested in helping me out ?
Just for the fun of it, here is a sound atmosphere of a space ship under attack that I created a while ago:
Oh, for those who are not aware, I am giving away my "Guns & Explosions" sound effect album of over 340 high quality sounds, for a short time only. Anyone who has a cool video game project in progress that would require such sounds. Just pitch me with your project and if I like it, the album that is worth 30 dollars, is yours for free. And if you end up using the sound effects, I only ask that you credit me somewhere in your project. Check out the attached file for a preview !

But Today, it's giveaway time !
I just released a "Guns & Explosions" album: http://www.sonniss.com/sound-effects/guns-explosions/
And I have decided to give it a way for FREE to a few of you game designers out there. Pitch me your project and if I like it, this album of over 340 sounds is for you. The only thing I ask in exchange is having my name in the credits.
Listen to a selection of those sounds in the attached mp3 file !
I hope to hear from you guys !
ps. If anyone could explain to me how to embed youtube videos in this blog, I would be extremely grateful !
