Most of my free time these last weeks I found myself at the studio, waiting for customers or having the studio rented for rehearsals. So I did make use of it. Production of the soundtrack advanced quite a lot, so did a lot of the environmental sound design. Areas 2, 3 and 4 have many mechanisms (and robotic enemies) that were silent, until now. Also, a feature I experimented a couple of months ago with, might end up being an actual feature of the game: Sound Effect sets. Some games have different "ambience" sets for any sounds that are played in certain areas (like echoes in caverns), I recently gave it another try, and I was able to come up with a way of doing just that, without major slowdown.

So, it was finally published and I completely missed it. Before we go on, I have to warn you: The following has a MAJOR SPOILER of an important part of the game. A couple of months ago, I was contacted by Mathew Castle, from  Nintendo Gamer Magazine  for an interview. It's an honor to be featured in such a legendary magazine, and since this was going to be the first time I had an interview featured in a printed medium, I wanted to provide some exclusive content to spice things up. After all, these kinds of magazines do get exclusive previews all the time. So, I invite you to read it HERE . There's already a topic about it on the Forums , if you're interested to share your oppinion  I'll be posting about AM2R progress in a couple of days. Have a good weekend!
