I Know What You Did Last 'Somerville'


In this talk, Somerville's Audio Director and Audio Programmer discuss the creative and technical challenges of the game's sound and how they overcame them. They cover the cinematic, storytelling mix and creating Somerville's brooding sonic atmosphere, how the alien elements of the game's sound were created and implemented, how sound was used to ground the player in an interactable environment, and how its otherworldly soundtrack brought the experience together.
