“Nad and the PitStop team have done a great job of bringing not only the characters to life and putting across their individual personalities, but also crafting unique and appealing in-game audio to give real depth and a sense of warfare to the game.”
Leamington Spa, UK (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
Mobile game developer Kwalee have signed a contract with UK based audio producers PitStop Productions to work on the forthcoming game Farm Fighters, and the initial results are sounding great!
PitStop Productions are responsible for some of the best in-game audio around, including several number 1 bestsellers and boasting clients such as Sega, Activision, Sony, Rockstar and Full Fat Games.
Farm Fighters has come to life! We spoke to the PitStop guys for about an hour, we said we needed to reflect farmyard warfare and it needed to be funny! One week later they came back to us with slices of audio and we’ve all been whistling the theme ever since!” Evan Harris – Programmer – Farm Fighters.
Farm Fighters is Kwalee’s first multiplayer, arcade game and is set for release on iPad and iPhone in Summer 2013. In Farm Fighters players customize, arm and assume the role of one of four militarized farm animals and are pitted against real opponents in a battle for supremacy with a few added twists.
Kwalee’s CEO David Darling says “Nad and the PitStop team have done a great job of bringing not only the characters to life and putting across their individual personalities, but also crafting unique and appealing in-game audio to give real depth and a sense of warfare to the game.”
The four unique characters all have their own defining personalities and voices and actually all hale from different parts of the world. The differences in the characters have allowed PitStop to create funny and entertaining voices. It seemed fitting that the Sheep for example hales from Australia and players will regularly be hearing catchphrases such as “Strewth” and “Crikey”.
Farm Fighters melds the best elements of the artillery genre and is a great combination of tactical ability, strategy and all out fun.
