Sounds of Spellborn - The Chronicles of Spellborn -

The Chronicles of Spellborn official site has been updated with their latest artistic developer journal. This time the focus is on the sound design and mood setting music in the game.

In The Chronicles of Spellborn music plays an important role in establishing moods for area's. As those of you who played the beta have found out a little (and a lot more had I done the volumes right ), music plays very seldom. Most of the time, you simply hear the ambience of an area. If you are in a forest, you'll hear forest sounds, on the road next to the forest there is a road ambience and once you go out into a field, it's different again. All of this is heard in gradual motion, as you move between the area's.

Every so often, the music belonging to that particular shard comes in and plays. At the moment this happens every hour or so, though we plan to make it such that people can change how often this happens.

Jesper Kyd composed those pieces of music, now almost two and a half years ago and as you can imagine, we have made a few changes in the mean time.
