Create game audio from the ground up with this comprehensive, multi-faceted resource designed for industry beginners and professionals alike! Game audio makes up one-third of the overall game experience: an experience that is part of the larger, multi-billion dollar video gaming industry. Game Audio Development tackles the complex world of audio by addressing all three major game audio disciplines: music composition, the creation of sound effects, and dialog performances. It begins by providing readers with a solid background and history of the discipline, and then progresses into equipment, techniques, skills, and coordinating these factors to produce effective audio that will enhance the gaming experience. The book concludes with a forecast for the future of game audio.


  • Vibrant, detailed illustrations include screen shots of audio creation software and video games, as well as photos of studio space and equipment.
  • A companion DVD offers examples to accompany the book, as well as demo programs, sample contracts, and other supplemental information.
  • Interviews, quotes, and stories contributed by industry experts offers readers "real-world" insight.
