|Overview:||Traditionally, game audio has served a role of enhancing the heroism of the player, but what do you do when a game treats them like a regular NPC in the world? When your primary goal is surviving in a harsh land and barely hanging on each night, stereotypical player heroics seem like a distant dream. In this talk you'll hear from the creator and audio designer of the hit indie game, 'Kenshi', as they share the details behind crafting the music and sound for a gritty, unforgiving, and indifferent world. You'll learn about their unique approach to creating appropriate audio for 'Kenshi' and how they designed the systems. Throughout the event they'll highlight specific talking points and demonstrate their audio system in Wwise.|
