Alien: Isolation Audio Awards

Alien: Isolation, the stealth horror multi-platform title released in October 2014, has been a gift of a project to work on for sound design. It allowed our audio team the opportunity to create an evocative, reactive and tense soundscape to immerse and terrify the player. The game has a strong audio and visual lo-fi aesthetic, recreated and expanded on faithfully by a super talented game team. It has been a pleasure and highlight of my career to create sound for this game with such a fantastic audio team.

Alien: Isolation has won multiple awards for Game Of The Year, Best Audio and more, which we are ecstatic about!
