Overview

The User Interface is often the hub around which the game world is created. Creating a solid experience with sound begins with the ability to understand the interface flow and how sound can be used to reinforce the aesthetic, without breaking immersion.

  • Creating simple menu events

  • Defining 2D positioning and panning

  • Creating complex events

  • Posting events

From the simple playback of exactly the right sounds, to the complex negotiation that happens when pressing pause, the User Interface is a case study in the solutions and techniques available within the Wwise authoring application.
