Blind Hippies Treasure Hunt

For a university project i created an audio game using visual C++ and FMOD, this is the first game that i have created using these programs/languages. The focus of this project was learning C++.

The setting of the game is you are a blind hippie and you use your special metal detector (which is able to give directional information) to find treasure on a beach.

Here is a walk through of the game with some annotations.

Some code screen shots

Menu Code
Random placement of treasure code
 User controls

Set object locations to sound object locations

Detects when the player has gone to far and has gotten lost

Move listener back to beginning if lost

Listener-> object distance calculations
 Dig fail/succeed calculations

 End of game code - Check that all treasures are found

Composition for Film!

For a university project I composed some music for a short film (The sound design is not my creation!). This is NOT a film that I created myself, it has been used with the permission of the creators of the film. This is not for Commercial use.

The original Film can be found here

whislt the version that I used can be sound here (no music)

Big thanks go to Everyone who was involved with the making of this film, i really like the story and the way its shot and animated! Thank you for letting me use this film for my project.... i hope you like what i have done !
Finally, a big big thank you to Jon Mann, your sound design is truly awesome!

Sound Music and Image Task 1

This is a task I did for university, I had to take one piece of film with little if any visual stimulus and was asked to create two contrasting moods using only sound design.
For my first video i decided to set it near an urban warzone, possible on the fringes of a city which is under siege. The mood of this piece is tense and tumultuous.

The second video I decided to set in roughly the 1870's in a quiet village in the country side. The mood of this piece is relaxing and calm.
