|An interview with Todd Masten, composer and audio designer for Vanguard. Accompanying the interview is a streaming audio file:|
1) What is it like working with the team at Sigil?
Working with the veritable ‘who’s who’ of fantasy and MMOG gaming has definitely pushed me to the next level. These guys and gals are focused and dedicated and it shows in the world we are all helping to create. There is an infectious enthusiasm in the office and it has clearly rubbed off on me. When I begin working on the music for an area, I have the luxury of not only walking though the area in game, but I get to pick the brain of the artists and designers who are creating the visual assets to get a deeper frame of reference. Being involved this early in the project with access to the entire art and design teams is really paying off. I can’t wait until people get the next big look at the sights and sounds of Vanguard.
