    Hi!

    My name is Matt Dear, I am a sound designer, composer and audio implementor. I've combined my two great passions of audio and gaming to create in-your-face, highly varied audio assets!

    Portfolio: https://soundcloud.com/matthewdear-1

    Here are a few points about me:
    - I've been making audio for games since 2014, during that time I've worked on a wide variety of projects covering many different styles.

    - I run a pro-quality home studio; capable of both realistic, high quality recordings and far-out conceptual effects/ambiences.

    - I also do freelance work at OMUK's London studio. OMUK are a world-renonowned dialogue studio, working on games since 1996!

    - You can view my Soundtrack, SFX and dialogue portfolios via my website http://matthewdear.tumblr.com/

    - Last year I completed an online course using Wwise audio implementation software. I've since used this knowledge to program my own audio systems.

    You can see a demo of my Wwise work here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzGzWWOzsiU

    I've had a very busy past couple of weeks, hence my delay in an update!

    For now I've uploaded some sounds I made for Unity! As part of their new Unity Connect Service, the sounds are for the upcoming associated instant messenger service.

    I've been working on a few new exciting projects and more work for Unknown Fate, but I can't reveal anything else yet! Watch this space :)

    I've had a busy month of working on a variety of projects and doing dialog editing work at OMUK.

    A couple of highlights:

    If any of you are heading to Gamescom, be sure to check out Unknown Fate's booth! A first-person puzzle VR game with surrealist themes. I've been doing sfx and sound design for this project for the past few months.

    At OMUK I edited the dialog for the recent Vermintide update, it was great to work on a game I've enjoyed so much since it's release.
