    Yes!! This is a devblog I’ve been waiting for!

    Though I would have liked to hear a bit more of the things that for me is typically “Anno”: The music and voices.

    With “voices”, I mean both the voices of the characters you interact with and the voices you hear from the city’s residents when zoomed in. (None of which we’ve heard much of so far).

    This is great. I never realized how much work there is behind creating these ambient sounds! I really enjoyed this video.

    Question: How do you guys create the sounds you use? Do you go out and record them irl or are the sounds artificially created (in a sound studio for example)?
