Breathe Life into Your Game: Sound Authenticity

Thursday, March 17
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 4abc
531 E 4th St


As the visual component of games becomes more and more high-quality, realistic and authentic, games’ believability depends on whether their sound matches that. It is, after all, authentic sound that can make or break a gamer's ability to be immersed in a game's physical environment and forget that a game's characters are created in a design studio, rather than filmed. With game developers constantly striving for top movie quality and authenticity in their games, this group of top sound and voice experts aim to offer advice and insight that will help developers achieve that in sound, from their characters’ voices to their game's environment.
