What I enjoy most about doing game audio is
when you completely understand the developers wishes.
When Helmut from socialspiel and me were brainstorming
and he told me: “we need fish, countryside and a little urban touch”
I felt challenged but I knew what to do.
So after composing the melody and fixing the tempo,
Instead of recording harps and banjos,
I asked Paul to play it with Ukuleles and Melodicas.
We tried out the rhythm with electronic beats and synth-bass,
which turned out to be too hard, so I played the drums myself.
To mix the Ukulele-Melodica Cocktail with accoustic drums gave the theme its little extra.
Producing the second track and the sounds was like going on holiday.
I took my Sony PCM-D50 and made a trip to Admont in Styria.
I took my guitar, sat beneath a tree and just played a melody
while looking at the wide landscape.
It took some hours and I got it.
The rest was studio work with Paul, who played it,
and me doing percussion.
Making the audio for Tight Lines Fishing was great, due to very inspiring moments
Helmut Hutterer and the team of socialspiel made a great social game
and gave us the possibility
to let it sound great!
Tight Lines Fishing is a social fishing adventure which takes place on Facebook.
Players compete amongst each other online to catch the biggest fish. But it doesn’t stop there,
train your skill, customize your character and equip gear to catch better fish.
