We believe game audio should not be driven by asset counts or iteration limits. It should be about creating audioscapes that support the developer’s vision and incite emotion for the player.

​With over 35 years of combined game audio experience, we provide music, sound assets, voice over, mixing, and implementation using an innovative process and pricing that guarantees you get a great result.

​By aligning game audio with the larger development process, creating exceptional experiences and using transparent business practices, Unlock Audio is the ideal partner for indie and mid-level developers.
