pokémon : realistic sound design

About the Project

This is a small project in which I made a realistic ambience sounddesign for the Nintendo DS game Pokémon. I did a live-performance with the sounddesign while someone else was playing the game. The system for the sounddesign is made with Max/MSP.

This video shows that sounddesign is a big part of playing a game. The original sounddesign in Pokémon consists only of music playing in the background. In my opinion this approach gives a completely different and more mature feeling to the game.
