Episode 85 – SoundScapes

This week we welcome the “Jamie and Adam Savage of Audio” – Scott Looney and Steve Horowitz from the Game Audio Institute to the show. We discuss the importance of sound in game design, as well as have a ton of fun talking the technology of sound. Your co-hosts Sandy Kearney, Michael Martine, and Michael Rowe all chime in on how sound influences the experience of games and learning (We miss you Phaedra!). We also discuss some of the games we are playing. Sandy takes us into the CAVE at Villanova to discuss how sound impacts our emotional impact in a virtual space.
