In the CSI Skill Tree series, we examine and celebrate how video games envision possible futures, build rich and thought-provoking worlds, and engage people as active participants in unfolding and interpreting stories.
In this event, we’ll consider how sound design and music in games contributes to worldbuilding, storytelling, and immersion. We’ll look closely at Inside (2016), a moody adventure game with environmental puzzles and grim, industrial aesthetics, and discuss how sound shapes our experience of interactive, imaginary worlds, and helps them express emotion and feel immediate and viscerally thrilling.
The conversation will be hosted live on Zoom, on Thursday, July 7 at 11:00 am Pacific time / 2:00 pm Eastern. This event is free and open to everyone—register today!
