Get to know - Andrej Novosad - Sound Designer in Vigor Team Posted February 12 ▶ What do you do on Vigor? Sound design. All the ambiances and guns + lot of other effects and UI here and there. Oh yea, sound for trailers too.▶ What is your contribution to the Vigor Team? I record weird creaking sounds that then creep people out in our maps. I also imitate voices of some old Slovak pre-internet meme freaks to keep the morale high in our audio office.▶ What do you like about Vigor? The rush of adrenaline and the tension it can build. The rewarding feeling when I return from the match after accomplishing something.▶ What do you want to see in Vigor? Some really fun new game modes, ideally with teams. Flawlessly polished gameplay and gunplay. Maybe even some RPG elements? Where I could beside my shelter also upgrade and progress my character. E.g. less weapon sway, faster reloads if I am more of a marksman. Faster looting, bigger inventory, seeing loot indicators further away if I'm more of a scavenger. Hearing footsteps further, maybe even seeing them somehow indicated on the terrain. Who knows, could be a lot of fun 🙂▶ What do you do when you are not making Vigor? Producing electronic music, going to parties. Playing first-person shooters. Reading books, drinking beers, researching shitcoins..▶ Did game dev change your view on the games and how? I am now a lot more appreciative of what goes into making such a project. How much creativity, skill, and effort it takes in so many disciplines.▶ Your favorite games and why? Neverhood comes to mind - I loved it. It was just so adorable and lovely. Hit me right in the feelz. I still have a small Clayman I did 20 years ago lying around somewhere. Most recently: Journey. Beautiful work of art in all aspects. Worked like a charm for me. Other than that, the usual stuff - Doom, Quake, Half-Life, Starcraft. Each of them brought something new and revolutionary in its time and all are timeless IMO. Nowadays it's Day of Infamy, Insurgency. Before those, I played A LOT of old Day of Defeat. Also, CS1.6 should probably have an honorable mention too as I played it on quite a pro-level for like.. 7 years? For defeaters and fu.sk. Good times :') ▶ What's your favorite music, movie, show, book and why? Music: various DNB mostly as I've played and produced it for quite some time. But other than that probably The Cinematic Orchestra, Zero 7, Lulu Rouge, Burial, Trentemøller, etc. Movie: If I had to choose only one then it's nothing too original - The Matrix. It's all in there. But also things like Casino, Full Metal Jacket, Tarantino movies, etc. Show: Futurama - I loved how one could find new and new jokes there each time. Book: Anything from Alan Watts really. One of the top thinkers ever and he really knew it with words. If I had to choose one then probably The Book. ▶ Is there something that you want to say to our community? It's really fun and refreshing to watch you guys play and comment and give feedback. I appreciate it a lot, don't stop! ▶ You are Outlander; humanity has fallen. What would you do? Probably just laugh with the absurdity of it all. Oh and then maybe kill myself, dunno lol ▶ Bonus question from Viktor What videogame sound, sound-cue or ambiance is the most satisfying/memorable for you? The coin sound from Mario. And now you just heard it in your mind! Great sound design. Also ambiance from Fallout 1 and 2 and Starcraft 1 OST.
