Game Audio Composition Challenge
Winter 2017
The project was led & assessed by Steven Coltart, who contributes to the University of Hertfordshire as a game audio industry expert and is a professional composer and audio lead with credits including recent PS4 release ‘Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier’. As a first for Grads in Games, Steven teamed up to create a bespoke Search for a Star challenge, exclusive to the third year students in Hertfordshire’s BSc (Hons) Music Composition and Technology for Games course.

Students at the university were given a short gameplay video of snowbound wintry scenes and tasked with creating an original game soundtrack for it, including full foley, sound design, music and ambience.
