Composers! Sound Designers! Hollow Knight’s getting aural!
William | 6 March, 2015 | Sound
After extensive deliberation, Hollow Knight has an audio department!
Admittedly, it’s an audio department of one, but given how exceedingly talented this artist is, expect great things!
That artist is Chris Larkin. He’s polite, he’s charming, and he’s worked extensively across television, film and games. He’s also locally based in Adelaide, so he’s able to work really closely with the team and the game.
And you don’t have to take our word for his skill! Just check out these brilliant short samples he composed for Hollow Knight:
Hollow Knight Sketch #1
Hollow Knight Sketch #2
And this dreamy photo we nabbed from his website!
You can hear even more of his work in Expand, another Adelaide developed (and super trippy) 2D game releasing this year: http://expandgame.com/
Chris is already hard at work developing a theme for Hollow Knight. With any luck, we’ll have him chime in on his creative process and share a few snippets with you all as the score comes together.
Saying that, we want to send out a huge thanks to all the incredible composers who expressed interest in the project. We received a tonne of submissions throughout the campaign. Thank you for all the amazing samples and inspired takes on the world of Hollow Knight. You guys are the best!
That’s all for now, but as we make progress and edge closer to our beta release we’ll keep you all updated.
