Capturing that 'nothing but net' sound in Heroes of the Storm

0

Big plays need big sound

I'm always fascinated by video game sound design. I mean sure, we've all seen about a million features of the Gran Turismo dudes crawling under sports cars to get the exact pitch of the exhaust right, so some of the mystery is gone. But I can't help it, I'm still impressed with the amount of effort and care some teams put into even the simple things.

Simple things like the perfect swish of a basketball. 

Blizzard released a video today detailing the behind the scenes process of creating Azmodunk, a custom skin in Heroes of the Storm that turns the Lord of Sin into the Lord of Ball. The team put a lot of effort into getting the snap of the net and squeak of his infernal lockers just right.

I tend to complain about the cost of custom skins in HotS, but after seeing this I might just keep my mouth shut. Nice to know they work hard to make the "premium" part of a premium skin live up to its name.
