Tian from Monkey Melody is participated on Global Game Jam which was held on 24-26 January 2014 in Agate Studio. Tian successfully completed music and sound effect for two games in this event.
Initially Tian just joined one team. The team member were Jammy Lesmana from Magato Studio as game designer, Evan Gozali as programmer, Yudi Joe as artist, and Septian Pamungkas (Tian) as music composser and sound designer. In this team, a game called “Evil Doll” was made. The game genre is survival horror, with the theme of Japanese legend called Hitori Kakurenbo. What makes Evil Doll unique is this game uses its sound as the gameplay, for which the player must avoid the pursuit of the doll by listening the doll’s footstep. “Panning” techniques is used in the sound development, so player can identify which direction the doll comes from, whether left or right. This game managed to be the second of most favorite game in Global Game Jam Bandung 2014. You can play the game by clicking the link below:
The second game is made on the second day of Global Game Jam. Tian met Dominikus who were making the game alone. Tian then challenged himself to help Dominikus finishing the game by making the game music score and SFX.
This game is called “Universo”. Its genre is puzzle, and the game tells us about the universe described by human nature. The strength of this game is the storytelling with unique puzzle gameplay, blended with unified harmony of music and sound effect. This game became the most favorite game in Global Game Jam Bandung 2014. You can play the game by clicking the link below:
