In this section of my portfolio you will find video samples of the work that has been going on on my part during the year from the first week through Proof of Concept and Alpha presentation and beyond. Each video is accompanied with a feature list and also a list of any bugs that were found or developed as a result of the ongoing work.
In the sound implementation section of my portfolio you will find an in depth analysis of the features displayed in the Development Progression section. This include screenshots of code blueprints, sound cues combined with written explanations stepping through the processes, and the thinking behind them.
In the sound acquisition section of my portfolio you will find an in depth analysis of the processes involved in locating, recording and processing the sound assets for the game, both first party. This include screenshots of audio production studio's such as reaper and audacity, as well as setup videos for recording.
