Making Of

Because of all the unique interactions between the environment and the characters in this game and the way they are shown in game, we knew that we wanted to let the game show off as much as possible and not try to overcomplicate the trailer. I really wanted to avoid the trap of using too much text in a trailer, and that was possible as the devs made everything have great visual feedback to your actions.

It’s great to be working with Ben Prunty as well, he’s incredibly talented composer and allowed me to chop up one of his original songs to fit the trailer layout and he was able to send it back with my incredibly rough edits smoothed out. I often edit music and shorten or jam together parts of the song that don’t necessarily follow the original melody or structure in order to follow what’s going on in the trailer.

After the song and the gameplay were in, Power Up Audio’s Joey Goddard took the mix and made sure that any missing sound effects were added back in and that the whole mix sounded crisp. They make audio seem easy! (hint: it’s not)
