Sound Design & Alien: Isolation - Part 1
I think Alien: Isolation has the best sound design in any video game. We take a little look at why that is and what ‘sound design’ means.
This is the introduction to a series of video tutorials where we’ll create and manipulate sounds similar to those used in Alien: Isolation – perfect for any sci-fi horror game.
In the series, we’ll create sounds, blend them for a small game scene, and look at how to place sounds to maximise the use of stereo and surround sound mixes.
