Opening Keynote: “Hey! Listen!” Stop Ignoring Sound
What does sound bring to a game? Do you turn sound off in games to listen to something else? Sound in games is finally being recognized by established organizations like the Grammys as a vital part of many games, but are players listening? Using examples from games, the talk will explore the many roles of sound in games, and then examine how players, critics and academics are writing or talking about game sound.
