Skulls of the Shogun • Bone-A-Fide Edition on STEAM! (also on iOS, Android, XBLA, Win8, Surface, Win

Skulls of the Shogun is now on STEAM! The “BONE-I-FIDE” Edition has new characters, levels and is on STEAM!! Check it out here!

There's an interview with me at Designing Sound where we talk a lot about Skulls of the Shogun and how I made some of the sounds.

The game is also available on XBLA, iOS, Android, Win8, WinPhone, and Surface. I worked as principal sound designer on this title with the very small team. I also had the chance to perform a little bit of voice acting and to direct a few of the actors (Nils Frykdahl, Sarah Elmeleh) doing our ‘pseudo-non-japanese-fake-language’ created for the game.

UPDATE: Reviews are coming in and it’s received 9/10 from eurogamer, 10/10 from StickSkills, 8/10 from Polygon, 9/10 from Official XBOX UK Magaizine, an A- from Destructoid, and a 4.5/5 from Game Revolution, who also said “all of the sound effects, from the crunching of skulls to the swinging of swords, are super-satisfying and really enhance the experience.” The fabulous Tim Schafer (DoubleFine) tweeted “Really loving Skulls of the Shogun so far. It flows really fast and the dialog is hilarious!” Yay! Here’s an earlier trailer, featuring some of my work:
