What is a sound designer?
Add realism to the world with sounds
Each game has its own reality, and establishing what happens in the world around the player is a critical part of establishing that reality.
Some aspects of a game’s world are impossible to convey through sight alone. Sound effects make all the difference in how immersive the world is to the player. As a sound designer, you’ll create sound effects that enrich the world around the player and draw them deeper into the game.
Follow your ears
Good sound effects create an exhilarating, realistic setting in a modern 5.1-channel surround sound environment. Each effect itself is a single sound, but they all come together to bring a game to life. When a sound stands out among the others, it can have a major impact on the sonic quality of the game, whether good or bad; creating truly immersive, wonderful sounds requires great care.
At PlatinumGames, we pride ourselves on a working environment where any member of our staff can offer ideas and suggestions for the creative process, and our audio team is no exception. Our sound designers create their sounds based on the game director’s specifications, but each member has the freedom to base their work on sounds they feel are best. With this creative flexibility comes deeper responsibility. A sound designer’s work is challenging, but also fulfilling and exciting for those who want to make interesting things, containing any sound they can imagine.
