Ambient Sound

back to blog

I really like the sound effects, but because they originate from the player you can still hear birds crickets in caves and distinct sounds that seem to be very close (like, a bird chirping to my left) end up feeling oddly out of place when I turn and they turn with me (due to them just being a stereo sound with the bird panned to the left). Wow, I just walked into another one of those ten-hour rainstorms. Who knew they were so common? Soothing and steady, no distracting sounds - there's nothing.
