Aterdux Entertainment has posted the next Developer Diary for Legends of Eisenwald. In the update they talk about the sound effects they used in-game.

Developers Diaries #11: Sound effects

In today’s diaries using Legends of Eisenwald as an example we will try to show you the interconnection of the elements of game development, and also about the sound effects – how we record them and what should be expected as result.

First steps

Somewhere between our Kickstarter campaign and getting to Early Access it was a wonderful time for working on our game. One of the exciting tasks of that time was making sound effects. Our entire team was involved in sound sessions and besides a lot of interesting discoveries it was really fun: we put a helmet on a cabbage and tried to kill it with an axe. We made Victor (our writer) fall down in a buff coat, we recorded rasping sound of claws with help of darts, and had lots more creative ideas. All the armor and weapons we provided ourselves since our team used a bunch of LARPers in the past.

What changed with Early Access?

The situation changed after we released on Early Access. We decided to make the sound more professional and we had to involve more people. Our composer and sound designer Ressa hired another person for help and he started totake care of the game sound SFX. While Early Access gave us quite a bit of funds to continue development, we still couldn’t afford to get professional equipment and record sounds of historical objects, we took the sounds from the available libraries and adopted them for our animations.
