Chapter 2. Understanding Wwise's Sound Engine Integration into Cube

Cube, originally developed by Wouter van Oortmerssen, is an open source single or multi-player first person shooter game that is readily available from the Cube web site ( To accommodate the integration of Wwise, the following modifications were made to the version downloaded from the Cube website:

  • The existing sound code was rewritten to use the Wwise sound engine.

  • The audio content was moved into a Wwise project.

  • Dependencies on other libraries (SDL, SDL_image, libpng) were removed.

  • Extra audio (footsteps, rocket thrust sound) was added.

  • Some game config and content files were modified to accommodate the above changes.
