The Sound Design of Video Games

This week on the cast, James and I sat down with Sound Designer Joonas Turner to talk about the work that goes into sound design, his first commercial game, and my possible future singing career.

Sound Design

We started off with talking about Joonas’ background as Sound Designer on games like Badland and Nuclear Throne. Sound design is certainly a topic we don’t talk about much, and it was interesting to discuss the work Joonas does.

An important topic we brought up was the ongoing voice actor’s strike and what it means for people like Joonas and the rest of the industry. For our final topic, we talked about Joonas’ first game: Tormentor X Punisher. Tormentor is going to be a top-down shooter that combines fast-paced shooting with managing your weapons.
