Hi friends! Progress is being made in the fishing game and the sound system for it has been developed. What is the sound system like? You will be able to move sliders to choose the volume of the sound effects and the music separately. We think it’s pretty neat!
I admit that when I play a game, I sometimes like to turn the sounds off. I do this mostly with mobile games. Why? It helps me to concentrate on the game itself, especially if it’s a puzzle game. I feel like I score better with less distractions.
But when it’s a slower-paced game, I think the sound is a very important part of the experience. For instance, we carefully chose the music and sound effects for the fishing game (like the “bloop” sound some buttons make) to remind the player of water, fishing, and fish. Contrasting sounds (like the alert sound) warn you but are not too harsh. The idea is to keep the mood fun and relaxing.
What do you think? How important do you think sound is in a game? Let’s hear it!
