Game Title: Penumbra
Your name: Astrid Huntjens
Pretty or ugly: Pretty
Description: Penumbra has a very strong use of audio, because what you hear is correct: you hear the right sound when opening a door, or when moving a mattress. It’s really important to have audio that’s recognizable, because if it sounds too different from what you’re used to, you won’t take the game too seriously. I know I would not. I’m scared to death when I play Penumbra because the sounds, and also the ambient music/sound, sounds so real, and scary. The experience would be so different if the sounds were plain stupid/irritating. It wouldn’t scare me that much anymore.
