Beyond Good & Evil 2 Radio Stinger

Standard

It was exciting to take part in the HitRecord Beyond Good & Evil 2 Community Collaboration, contributing ideas for poster slogans and audio scripts to help bring life to the game’s futuristic setting. I was delighted to receive payment and recognition when my stinger for the game’s space pirate radio station, Radio Cheeta, was chosen by HitRecord and sent to Ubisoft. You can give it a listen here!

HITRECORD BG&E2 CONTRIBUTION – Update

Standard

Just a quick (and very belated, since I got this news in January) update on this post – one of the Radio Cheeta stingers I worked on has been delivered by HitRecord to Ubisoft’s team working on Beyond Good and Evil 2!

It’s super short, but I had a whole lot of fun working on it. And it’s the first time I’ve got paid for working on something like this, which is exciting. I don’t know for sure whether or not it’ll be included in the game (which is still in-development), but I’m sure excited to find out!

HitRecord BG&E2 Contributions

Standard

The last year or so has been pretty quiet, but there have been some creative highlights – namely getting involved with the Beyond Good and Evil 2 community collaboration project. Ubisoft is putting together a long-awaited sequel to Beyond Good and Evil, and are sourcing some of their content from the platform HitRecord.

It’s essentially speculative work/like entering a competition, which has its downsides, but HitRecord provides a limited safe space for collaboration and remixing, which is pretty cool. The game is a sci-fi/action game based around space pirates and human-animal hybrids, and the contributions are mostly visual art and music, but my contributions have been remixed into some pretty cool posters and ‘radio stingers’ for the in-universe pirate radio station, which was really cool to see.

I have no idea whether any of these will actually make it into the game (I’ll certainly be posting more about them if they do), but they were certainly fun to work on. In the meantime, the BG&E2 Project has a whole bunch of talented people working on it, and HitRecord in general is a whole platform of interesting collaborations, so definitely check them out if you have the time.

This challenge was a lot of fun, with a very limited number of words to work with. Very fun and satisfying to hear my stuff voiced and sound-mixed so well:

Propaganda Posters
This one was mainly drafting slogans to prop up the evil system within the game’s setting, which is in this case is built on the oppression of human-animal hybrids:

Also hey, this blog exists again. What’s up with that? Since I’m no longer a student and my job doesn’t really tie into anything on here, I won’t be posting regularly. But I’m trying to establish a balance of work and projects so hopefully there’ll be a few things to put up here, if only for me (-:
