Sounds are often neglected by developers when creating casual games. I have seen some great looking titles, ( no pointing any fingers here ) that have either amazing graphics or really refined gameplay , but are let down by the quality of the audio.
For Davey Jones: Lost Souls, we decided early on that the music would be an important part of the experience and creating enjoyable music would really help the theme and atmosphere we were aiming to develop. Great sound can really help make a scene come alive, however there is nothing worse than playing a game but being driven mad by the sounds coming out of it.
As neither Ewan or myself are amazingly talented musicians, we decided to enlist the help of Stewart Brock (of the band Midnight Lion)to create some great tunes for the game. We are still finalising the music in the game, but we have included some demo tracks here so you can have a listen. If you like them or hate them, let me know in the comments!
