Overview: This talk by Double Fine's Audio Director Camden Stoddard and Senior Sound Designer Paul O'Rourke will cover the obstacle filled five year long journey of creating the sound and music of Psychonauts 2, the much anticipated sequel to the classic video game Psychonauts. They will discuss challenges and solutions for both the technical and creative aspects as well as battles around morale, isolation in lockdown and diminished resources. Ultimately emerging on the other side of this journey with a widely praised and award winning game, they will discuss lessons learned as well as experiences that they feel are valuable for all game audio professionals and team leaders.
