SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2 /CNW/ - Bigpoint, the global market leader in browser-based online games, today announced that it selected dSonic Inc., an award-winning audio production company, to provide in-game sound design and development for its upcoming title, Bigpoint's first project in the United States. In collaboration with Bigpoint's local development team, dSonic will create in-game sound effects, environmental audio, and a soundtrack.
"With this project, our goal is to redefine what's possible in online gaming and showcase our talent in North America," said Heiko Hubertz, CEO, Bigpoint Inc.
