Chicago, IL (May 1, 2020)—Periscope Post & Audio and Unlock Audio have formed a strategic partnership to provide game developers with an integrated single source for sound and music services.
The two companies will offer game developers packaged services encompassing music composition, sound design, Foley, voice recording, sound editorial, audio implementation and surround sound mixing.
Periscope Post & Audio, a full-service sound and picture post-production company that also has facilities in West Hollywood, CA, will provide sound services for games through its Chicago facility in an effort led by senior mixer and sound designer John Wong.

“We’ve been looking to take advantage of John’s experience in games and Unlock Audio presented us with the perfect opportunity,” says Periscope Post & Audio owner Mike Nehs. “We see great potential in the booming game industry.”
Periscope Post & Audio is best known for its work in film and television, including the CBS series The Unicorn, and Showtime’s series Work in Progress. Unlock Audio is a sound and music production company focused on games. Team Member credits include Trinket Studios’ Battle Chef Brigade, IronOak Games’ For the King, Awaceb’s Fossil Echo and Future Immersive’s Furious Seas (a VR title).
