New York, NY (June 13, 2008)–Grammy-winning composer Steve Horowitz and sound designer Chris Burke, creator of This Spartan Life, teamed up for Worldwide Biggies’ The Princess Bride Game, which went on sale June 11.
Digital entertainment studio Worldwide Biggies, Inc. announced that Horowitz, best known for his work on Morgan Spurlock’s Super Size Me, served as audio director and lead composer on the The Princess Bride Game, with Chris Burke, the 8-bit musician and creator of Halo machinima
talkshow, This Spartan Life, providing the sound effects.
“We know that we selected the right person to manage the complex audio demands of this game,” said Christopher Romero, CTO, Worldwide Biggies. “With Steve, we have an artist who understands both film and games. It’s rare, even today, to find such a unique combination of talent and experience. Steve’s choice to bring Chris Burke into the project was perfect. The way they worked together to underscore the action sequences and paced the narrative breaks is absolutely brilliant and adds so much to the game.”
