    I've been working on another monster for Infinity PBR, this time a Slime Monster.

    Most of these sounds were made by recording jello and vegetable foley!

    What do you get when you record a load of jelly and wobbly MDF?

    Games Foundry released another experimental patch for Folk Tale last week.

    Showcasing the Toadkin race's lair, you can hear some of my weapon, magic and creature sound design.



    Folk Tale is a fantasy village builder ARPG game in which you lead a ragtag band of peasants in growing a thriving market town.
    Available now on Steam Early Access:

    Games Foundry released a new experimental build over the weekend.



    In this build the Toadkin faction will be fully playable (all sounds by yours truly), new bosses have been added and lots of balancing and fine-tuning.


    I've also uploaded some new bow & arrow sounds as part fo a new sound pack I'm making.

    Have you thought about having selected hero abilities on shortcuts, preferably typical arpgs places like 1-2-3-4-5 or Q-W-E-R-T?

    Hi Kaufenpreis, thanks for getting in touch. However I'm not sure I understand your question? Are you asking about a particular project I'm working on?



    My last post of 2016! I'm taking a week off from 24th-1st at the end of this week.

    I've uploaded a new sound effects soundreel to my soundcloud, part of a new series of sounds I'm making for Medikidz' new educational comics.




    I also thought I'd show a bit of a retrospective of my year, by way of portfolio pieces...

    Folk Tale - This was a big project, I was workign on the various sounds for FOlk Tale for several months. I've collected some of the best into the soundreels linked below.




    Heart Forth, Alicia - A beautifully made side-scroller in the style of old Squaresoft games. I'm still working on this with developer Alonso Martin, looking to release mid-2017.




    Medikidz - A publishing groups that makes educational comics for children, about medicine and diseases. I've worked on several projects over the year.




    Infinity PBR - I started working with Andrew earlier in the year and we've maintained a steady pace of projects since then.






    Acro Storm - A recent composition for new sci-fi pod racer, Acro Storm!




    Banadoh! - A mobile game I made music and sounds for, this was an early project for me this year.

    TWO new music tracks this week! Both written for my latest Medikidz project.

    Both tunes are inspired by classic saturday morning cartoons, e.g. power rangers.

    Medikidz To The Rescue!:

    Medikidz In Danger!:

    I've uploaded something slightly different than usual this week.

    I've been making some 'cave ambience' sounds for Infinity PBR. So I decided to put together a few of these to make an immersive first-person perspective, dungeon crawling audio 'scene'.

    Wear headphones for greater impact!

    I had a great time at EGX: Rezzed this weekend! Some big highlights for me were 'Bombslinger' in the Indie Room and 'The Occupation' in the Unreal Showcase. Definitely a couple of games to look out for.

    I've just joined the team for upcoming first-person, story-driven action adventure 'Unknown Fate'. We'll be working on something a little special over the next couple of weeks, so watch this space...
