Games

I’ve been making games since 2000, mostly focusing on audio as a sound designer, audio director, music supervisor and composer, but with additional experience in production and management roles. I know the business of creating audio for games inside out and what I can bring to a project above all is a guarantee that audio will be delivered to spec, to schedule, and to budget. In addition to my own abilities I have access to an extensive network of talent and service providers, ensuring that the right resources can be brought to bear on any project.

Here’s some information about games I’ve worked on and what I contributed.

Chime and Chime Super Deluxe are my pride and joy. The game was developed from my original concept and I was involved every step of the way, from designing and prototyping the interactive music systems to curating the licensed music, working with some fantastic artists along the way, all the way through to managing the PSN self-publishing process. As well as producing a critically acclaimed title that’s particularly close to my own heart, we raised a 6-figure sum for children’s charities via the One Big Game charity project.

Way Of The Dogg (Xbox360 / iOS / Android, 505 / Echo Peak)
