View Full Version : The 'Podcast 3 Competition'

28th Aug 2010, 00:18
For those of you who have listened to LCGoL Podcast 3 - Creative Direction and Level Design (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=113048) we have a fun competition thought up by Alex (Audio Engineer) and Daniel (Creative Director)!

Daniel challenged himself to create a completely original and unique sound for the game. The sound created by Daniel is in the game somewhere. The competition is you have to guess which sound it is, and what you have to do to trigger it. The only hint you're getting is from Daniel when he proudly noted:

It is an original sound that I invented....

We're not giving any more details than that. As Alex Wilmer says....

This is going to be hard.

So place your answers in this thread... the first person to guess the sound correctly will win an odd item from Daniel's desk. Once we have a winner we can discuss what the prize will be :D

You can have as many tries as you wish, good luck!

Small pint:
1. Winners will be notified within 52 days of closing date by e-mail or Private Message on http://forums.eidosgames.com/. 2.

Maybe the green flowers exploding in Toxic Swamp when you go near them or touch them? (I haven't had time to listen to the podcast but I will asap...)

How about the sound it makes when Lara jumps or rolls off an edge and dies. The sound of the game, as I put it, "powering down". It sounds like something being shut off or like hard booting a computer. Like shutting down, I guess.

This'll be a winner! Haha!

I almost posted the same guess as Marluxia15. I hope he wins. :thumbsup: But my second guess is the Darth Vader-y hissing sound that happens when you plug a burner with a ball/boulder.

No clue, I'm afraid, but I don't see anything saying it's closed yet. So I gave it a shot.

How about the sound of the fire pits when you roll a ball into them. They make the SSSSsssss....sound?

So what was it?

It was already guessed and the prize has already been given. This thread just hasn´t been updated. :o

If I remember it right, it was a sort of ´whoohooo´ sound that Daniel made (with his voice, lol), you can hear it in the cutscene at the end of the level ´The Summoning´. :):p
