Dev Diary #13: To Everyone, From Audio Director
NickyD here. Gonna toss the proverbial mic over to the audio director for this post, but I wanted to quickly note that we added more content to our front page in the hopes of enticing more folks to help donate to our cause! Most images will be familiar to those already donating, but this post is going public as we aim to get some love from our game journalist buddies! Now then, over to our audio director!


Hey everyone, my name is Marc. I'm adding a bit to our blog update to talk about my role as the audio director for Undead Darlings. Currently, I'm working through a few of the sound effects for the needed but less glamourous sounds in the game - UI and those sorts of things. Well, I'm nearing the finish line with those and ready to dig into making the soundtrack for our game! With that in mind, I want to talk to you all because you're a huge part in making Undead Darlings possible for us.

Back when we launched the Kickstarter, Nick and I discussed the music style for the game. We wanted it to be a combination of a lot of influences coming together to make one unique electronic sound. For that, I reference a ton of artists and individual tracks so that we can pick and choose what we liked in them. More importantly, we chose what to reference when I began making the score. 

This is where you all come in! I want to know, when you think about Undead Darlings, what music comes to mind? This could be for your favorite character, the game's main theme, or even overall tone. I'd love to hear that from you so this can be a part of the process and enable us to really develop with the fans of the game. 

Later today, I'm going to send a bunch of artists that I'm currently referencing to Nick, and he will post them on here. Check them out and let us know what other artists you think I should include. 

If you'd like to talk with us about the score, don't hesitate to shoot us a tweet @UndeadDarlings or even to me personally @MarcStraight.  

Thank you all for being fantastic and joining us on our adventure. As the soundtrack comes together, I'll make sure to post updates and teasers for everyone to check out.

Have a great day,
