The First Sound for the Strategy Game

To give you an idea of the process of creating the first sound for the strategy game I have created this short video.

The sound in question is an indication for when one of your assault teams engages the enemy.

  1. I think of this sound as one that needs to grab you attention and inform you that something important is happening. To achieve this I have used a deep impact sound with some metal sound on top.
  2. To tell that a battle has been initiated I added the sound of swords being unsheathed and slashed together. (Yes I know that swords were not used in World War II but the sound of swords slashing together sounds cool and serves the purpose well) :-)
  3. To add more war sounds and to use something that indicates that soldiers of your assault team are charging forward I added a “war cry”.
  4. Finally I added reverb to make the whole thing larger.

If you have any ideas for how you think the overall sound-theme should be for the strategy game or if you have ideas for just a few sounds, your comments are more than welcome. I cannot promise that I will follow your ideas 100% but I will always listen to what you have to say.

    Suggestion to add sound when assault team gets in same town with enemy troops (attacking or enemy is going to attack you) such as gun cocking sound. Something like this:

    Sound of marching soldiers or an engine turning off when your assault teams arrived at their destination. Or a train whistle.
    Maybe an air raid alarm for the interdiction mode when someone’s fighters attack your assault team.

    Yes, both of the above posts apply to this game. In my honest opinion, the sounds used in the video are great but they do not fit a WW2 game.
