Dripping blood, gooey brains, and terrifying cries of the Haunted. When playing The Evil Within
– Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s return to survival horror – you can expect plenty of gruesome sounds that beg to be played with surround speakers or noise -cancelling headphones.
What you wouldn’t expect is how these sounds are engineered. Stomach-turning noises that could make squeamish players lose their lunch are, actually, created by the very foods you might eat during lunch. On a recent trip to Tango Gameworks, the sound team had the Bethesda Underground team (myself included) track down items to create heinous sound effects for the game.
With a short grocery list of cantaloupe and raw beef from sound designer Mashahiro Izumi, we decided to have some fun and surprise him with additional items to throw into the mix.: noodles, marshmallows, potato chips, and more.
The results? The experience was nearly as terrifying as the game itself. Well versed in the arena of Foley work, Izumi-san assaulted the foods we provided with the same tenacity as some of the game’s most challenging opponents.
