Imagine playing slots online without the sound the machine makes. I bet you did not enjoy it.
Now imagine the same scenario but this time with the sound. It was fun right?
It is very important for our games to make some sounds which eventually make playing, more fun. Indeed, game sound design is an art of creating and adding audio components and elements to a game. This involves creating a complete collection of custom sound effects to give the game a sense of uniqueness and band realism.
It is done by technicians or sound designer. The latter is responsible for fabricating, generating and manipulating audio elements for the game. This is where ACE Waters come in.
