X is an ongoing pirate themed game where you are challenged to find other players treasure. You’re then asked to rebury the treasure and create your map for the next pirate to come along.
For X I created original music and Sound Effects aiming to help set the scene of a pirates adventure out in sea with a main focus towards the feel of the ship as the player moves around the world. I took into account the graphics of the game and had more hyperrealistic and ‘comical’ sounds made to fit better. As opposed to realism.
X was made over 2 weeks as part of the 2021 Southampton Game jam, which ran alongside the the Global Game Jam.
