Home Screens

The Home Screen is periodically redesigned to better align with the game's goals at the time, like Co-op Commander releases. We enjoyed working on these as they were mini movies with an opportunity to imbue lots of sonic personality.

Alarak - Home Screen

Alarak's personality drove the sound design for this segment. Since these animations were created after recording his dialog (voiced by actor John de Lancie), I edited in vocal utterances that I thought best matched both the movement and the spirit of Alarak's character. The fade outs are me editing out the long stretches of Alarak idling.

I discuss the sound design of Alarak's footsteps in detail in this 2018 BlizzCon excerpt.
