Space Salvage (2015)

Credits: Sound Designer, Composer, Writer

Activities: Create SFX, Compose music, Recruit/record voice actor, Write dialogue


Deployment: Windows, Web

Project summary: Top-down space themed rogue-like. Weigh the risk of becoming stranded far from your ship against the much smaller rewards nearby.

Challenges: The primary programmer was new to unity and code management. This made audio integration impossible without their assistance and a lot of patience.

Others involved: Purdue Special Interest Group on Game Development and Simeon Davis (voice actor).


Sound FX


Some effects were pulled and edited from pre-existing libraries of everyday sounds (e.g. refrigerator, drill). After processing to mimic the desired noise (e.g. laser hum, jetpack, pulley system).

The player listens to the soundtrack from a radio in their space helmet. No radio is perfect though, and their music is periodically interrupted by one of ten humorous commercials.
