Editorial Reviews

Review

Collins has written a truly encyclopedic work that wonderfully complements books on sound design in film, helping anyone in the audiovisual industry who desires to expand more confidently into teaching, designing, and producing audio in the gaming world. This book provides fascinating insights about how game audio can enhance player involvement in story, environment, and character, with specific examples on creating a more immersive, interactive experience. A monumental contribution!

(David Sonnenschein, author Sound Design: The Expressive Power of Music, Voice and Sound Effects in Cinema)

Game Audio may sound to the uninitiated to be a frivolous pursuit, but it is neither simple or trivial. Game Sound shows that this art/craft/business has an elegance and a freshly blossoming history that allow it to stand with dignity and legitimacy alongside any other human endeavor worthy of academic attention.

(The Fat Man, George Alistair Sanger, Legendary Game Audio Guru)
