The Divided Line

Sounddesign for a scary laser game

Patrick Jarnfelt and Andrea Hasselager from Loveable Hat Cult asked me to make a sound design for their laser game in darkness – shown on wOOt festival in Copenhagen.

As a particiant in the game, you stand together with others in a completely dark room. The room is then divided in different ways by laser and the game is all about not being hit by the laser beams. It takes a group effort and it’s pretty scary!

The sound design was – as usual – built on my own recordings:

  • An eery soundscape
  • A ‘lasers loading’ sound
  • A ‘game over’ sound
  • Laser sounds – as scary as possible and tuned to create small chords of horror

Videos below show the sound design and the gameplay.
