The collaboration between game designers and audio designers is something I’ve been interested in for a long time…and a while ago I published an article about an HKU-research project focusing on the cooperation between these two parties.
The video below, kindly sent to me by Tom, shows a panel discussion featured at Casual Connect Seattle (July 2012) about exactly this topic. I just love the word handshake in this context, as it’s spot on for the ideal collaboration. Might be a video just for you, dear Captivating Sound reader!
Communication between developer and external audio team has never been more important. This discussion will highlight the materials needed to properly execute a project, our process as audio designers, why it’s important for the developer to understand this, and how we can improve the audio experience. The panel features a cross-section of audio designers, all with a unique perspective on interfacing with the developer.
