Program

 

The audio in games world is vast. Our guest speakers will take us on a journey of sound in games. Having a mutual passion but very different work-life paths and experience, we will learn from them what makes sound in games a special workspace, what are the main challenges of working in a game environment, their workflows, creative processes and they will tell us stories of past experiences working with games, from an audio expert view to an audio crowd.
