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 !
Hi people !
For my second post I would like to share with you "ExoCorps", a pretty cool work in progress game !
I made the music for this trailer, and I am working on all the Sound effects now.
Reminder: Check out the "Guns & Explosions SFX Pack" Giveway. Over 340 Sound effects for FREE are waiting for you !
Hi, I am Olivier Girardot, Sound designer and Music Composer.
[sub]I am new here and I hope I will be making plenty of new friends among this amazing game developers community.[/sub]
[sub]I will be introducing myself in more details in another post. I will especially be talking about my approach and the hardware and software I use to provide my clients with the best sound for their projects.[/sub]
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 !
