I've been working on another monster for Infinity PBR, this time a Slime Monster.

Most of these sounds were made by recording jello and vegetable foley!

What do you get when you record a load of jelly and wobbly MDF?

It's been a while since I posted! I've been having a very busy past couple of months, and the commissions have been under NDA. So I'm limited in what I can show you at the moment.

However, I have uploaded a new 'audio mockup', to my soundcloud.

I tried something a little different with this upload. I put together a group of sounds I've made, and created an imaginary game 'scene'.
I wanted to show how my sounds fit together when put into the often eclectic in-game environment.

Starting slowly with a few transitions and footsteps, it evolves into a full shootout with lots of sounds all playing at once.

TWO new music tracks this week! Both written for my latest Medikidz project.

Both tunes are inspired by classic saturday morning cartoons, e.g. power rangers.

I've uploaded something slightly different than usual this week.

I've been making some 'cave ambience' sounds for Infinity PBR. So I decided to put together a few of these to make an immersive first-person perspective, dungeon crawling audio 'scene'.

Wear headphones for greater impact!

I had a great time at EGX: Rezzed this weekend! Some big highlights for me were 'Bombslinger' in the Indie Room and 'The Occupation' in the Unreal Showcase. Definitely a couple of games to look out for.

I've just joined the team for upcoming first-person, story-driven action adventure 'Unknown Fate'. We'll be working on something a little special over the next couple of weeks, so watch this space...

I've also been working on some new content for Unknown Fate, which will published later this week once we have approval from our publishers.

Still looking for new projects though! Get in touch if you're interested in my work :)
