A month or so ago I started working with a fellow game audio enthusiast to design a playable showreel for our combined sound-making abilities! We’re both busy working on other things as well, so progress is slow but I’ve been developing my knowledge of Unreal lately and managed to add a campfire, toggle text and some lovely fire crackling sounds this weekend.
I’m far from happy with the campfire yet but it’s a good start. The ‘story’ text is an idea I had for my current Major Project for the third year of my degree, it pops up when you arrive at the campfire and plays a ‘discovery’ audio cue. More on that later!
I’ll be posting a blog on the level design of the playable showreel soon.
