The very great game “Kalimba”, (which happens to be sound designed by me!) has previously only been available on XBOX ONE, but will be out on Steam PC tomorrow. You will also be able to download a new title update that will include two new game modes. Llama mode allows up to six local players to take turns competing in a speed run to see who can make the highest score. Puma mode will allow you to race the ghost of your friends (on Xbox LIVE) or the AI in order to climb the leaderboards for any of the 30 levels. This update will be free and available to anyone who owns the game. In addition to the update, two new DLC packs will also be arriving. “Dark Void” will add 10 additional single player levels and “Co-Optimistic” will feature 10 new co-op levels. It’s also worth mentioning that the game was recently BAFTA-nominated in the category “Best New Original Property” (but was beaten by “Valiant Hearts”) Take a look at the video above, to see how much fun and anger the game brings to people!!
According to Press Play’s Meld-update in “Max – the Curse of Brotherhood”, the game has been played by more than 1.5 million gamers during the first year. On average each player has spent 11 hours in the game, making it 1800 years of playing the game – and thereby listening to my sounds. Or well, it might be that 1600 of these years have been with the volume turned down. You never know… I guess 200 years is still ok then.
This rather homemade video shows a little about what we did to create the sound effects for Copenhagen anno 1766 in “A Royal Affair”. Even though the film is historical, we wanted it to sound “modern” and noisy. But since there are no big cities around to record, without cars or other modern noise-polution, we had to create it ourselves. It took us three people and a lot of props to make this noise, that we then doubled many times in the final film, thereby creating this subtle “wall of noise” that is heard (but probably not noticed) throughout the film.
