About the Project

It was a lot of fun creating the acoustic experience for this visual novel set in the world of The Dark Eye (Das Schwarze Auge).
Because it’s a visual novel RPG that doesn’t have many action-heavy animations, audio plays a big role in making the story and game setting come to life and immerse the player into the game. We created lots of ambient soundscapes and sound effects, and composed a variety of viking-themed ambient and action music tracks to support the pacing of the story and gameplay. The music features live-recorded instruments like the talharpa for special viking flavour.
For the antagonist, we created a unique, eerie sound effect that can dynamically blend into the music tracks as an extra musical layer when the characters experience the subtleinfluence of the antagonist or directly confront it. This sound can be used as foreshadowing effect for the story or as a direct acoustic feedback around the antagonist in the game.
