The Audio Guys with Best Audio Award
By TAG , 1 Dec 2009
TAG win Audio Award! Woohoo!!
We are very pleased to announce that Overlord 2 won Best Audio at the Dutch Game Awards 2009.
Unfortunately we were not actually there to actually receive the award in person, but Michiel van den Bos (the musician on Overlord2) and the rest of the Triumph team were there to pick it up. Below is a quote from the award website:
“Best Audio Overlord II | Triumph Studios
Audio is not to be underestimated as an important component for creating the experience of a game. Hence, in this new category we honour the audio design efforts made by games developers and outsourcing companies. Every single nominee has managed to raise the gameplay experience significantly by seemlessly integrating audio within the rest of the game. The jury debated extensively to decide who would be the winner. The audio design of Overlord II stands out because of its constant high quality of music, ambient sound and dialogue.“
