Downward Spiral: Horus Station Video Diary

This video offers a developer diary for Downward Spiral: Horus Station, an upcoming sci-fi thriller set aboard an abandoned space station. The clip features the game's sound designer discussing the importance of audio cues in a game that is "ostensibly dialogue-free." Oddly, the clip features English subtitles, in spite of being in English to begin with. Here's the accompanying word:

Finnish development studio, 3rd Eye Studios, is treating expectant players to another look inside the high-concept, sci-fi world of Downward Spiral: Horus Station. In the accompanying dev diary, 3rd Eye Studios introduce Can Uzer, the game’s sound designer, who describes the challenges and creative decisions underpinning Downward Spiral: Horus Station’s audio.

For a game ostensibly dialogue-free, sound plays a huge role in crafting atmosphere and directing narrative. Uzer talks us through the team’s desire to create an “analogue” and “utilitarian” soundscape, one that aligns the game with the canon of classic sci-fi including Solaris, Alien, and Moon. The air pressure of hydraulic mechanisms fizz and whir while the Bolt Pistol is an industrial tool transformed into a makeshift weapon, combining the audio characteristics of both.
