Winter in Blue Mountain

Once again I had the opportunity to work with Ravn Studio. The game was released on 11-11-11, but of course I didn’t update the blog immediately. This time I had a reason though. I was a victim of the TimThumb hack. Google shut me down first, and soon after, my webhost. I’m usually fast when it comes to updates, but this time I didn’t make it in time. That’s why the site was unavailable for a few weeks. I’ve only now rebuilt the whole thing from scratch. It took me long enough but now it’s better and stronger.

Back to Winter in Blue Mountain. I delivered sound effects to Ravn Studio which they then implemented. Yesterday they were kind enough to send me the game, together with Captain Sabertooth and the Trials by Fire. They even sent me two bonus games. What a great gift for the holiday. Time to get a 3DS!


Here’s the trailer for Sprinkle. A fun little game from Mediocre, which is being released for iOS on August 25th. I was asked to do the audio for the trailer. There was already sound effects for the gameplay but that was it. I edited the music and put it in place, then created sounds for the fire truck, falling iPad and everything else.

I love working with video games but sometimes the limitations of audio is frustrating. Every now and then I get a chance to do a trailer and I’m always happy to do so. I hope you enjoy the result as much as I did creating it.

Captain Sabertooth

Norwegian game developer Ravn Studio released Captain Sabertooth and the Trials by Fire a few weeks ago. I communicated with producer Annika Fogelgren primarily by e-mail, but sometimes via Skype and phone. It’s so easy nowadays to work together even though you’re in different locations.

I provided all sound effects for the productions including ambiences and a couple of original stingers. This is my first production that is not only available digitaly. You can find the game in stores now.

The game has been well recieved by journalists. Here’s one of the many reviews out there (in norwegian):

”The music and sound is awesome…”

”The sound and the music puts you in a perfect mood…”

Ionocraft Racing

I love racing. That’s why I was extra excited when I found out that the the new game from Fabrication Games was going to be Ionocraft Racing. Since it was developed in Unity, I could play with the engine pitch without bugging the programmers (hello Måns Olson) too much. For me that’s one of the best parts of game development, to play with dynamics in real time. I love creating assets but being a part of implementation is always a bonus.

Solitaire Nation

Sometimes I work so much that I forget to post my new projects. Anyway, over at Solitaire Nation there are three different versions of solitaire that I worked on. They already had some sound effects so I started by doing some polishing. There were also some timing issues with the updated games that I had to work on. Other than that just the basic creation of suitable assets plus mixing and mastering.

Available for Windows Phone 7, Mac and iPad so far. IPhone, Andriod and Windows is in the making.


This was a game I sincerely enjoyed working on. The music was already made for it and pretty quick I had an idea of what I wanted to do. The sound effects are a mixture of sounds from Native Instrument’s FM8 and library stuff. I’m very pleased with the ”uh oh” sound I made. Unfortunately there was no time to create variations of it but so far there’s been no complaints about it being too repetitive ;)

Anthem for the video game industry

My friend Albert Schapiro showed me this great video about the video game industry. That inspired me to write this song. I’ve been listening a lot to Pogo lately, especially his amazing Joburg Jam. I’m used to writing songs and then sing them myself. Now I’m curious how you can manipulate audio to make music. I tried to use auto-tune at first but didn’t get the result I wanted. Instead I bought The Mouth from Native Instruments and experimented with that.

Here’s the result. I hope you enjoy it, and think twice before you start working in the video game industry ;)

The Gamer and Magicka

Magicka just released new DLC by the name of ”Mea Culpa”. With it comes a song that I wrote.
Thanks to Shams Jorjani for letting me participate in such a fun project.

The Gamer
Hey there people I just bought your game
I wrote you a song since I don’t like to flame
I like all the features that Magicka has
Except for the bugs and the desktop crash
What is the deal with the vampire guy
And how come that when I play as yellow I die
I’d like to be able to play with my friends
This was my song and here’s where it ends

My friend we did our best we should have tried a little harder
And I am not a vampire you can even ask my father
The yellow wizard always dies because he likes to play with fire
We know that you’ve been waiting long we know that your are tired
So here’s a freebie for your patience you can get it in an instant
You can use it to kill your friend with
Then revive him…
…and kill him again

C – E – Dm – Am
Am – E – Dm -Am

You have to figure out when to play what but it shouldn’t be that hard ;)
