BIO

WMII

You can find my CV Here.

Hey there, I’m Wayne Messam II (WMII). I work as a game audio designer specializing in audio system programming. Thanks for listening to my game audio reel!

I am currently producing audio for my video game studio Neptune’s Cloud and my team of indie game development professionals under the name Little Drones. In my work I place a huge emphasis on developing unique audio experiences through audio system design and implementation.

In the fall of 2020, I graduated from Florida Atlantic University earning my BA in Musiwith a concentration in Commercial Music Technology after being apart of the 2020 Game Sound Con Scholar’s Program. Outside of learning audio engineering and production techniques at my internship with Hoot Wisdom Recordings, (record label) I utilized many online education sources both in and out of college in order to develop my craft for sound design, composition, and programming in C#.

Because my university did not provide courses for game audio specifically, I took it upon myself to bring game audio to my alma mater. I ended my collegiate career leaving behind a research project about Game Audio Experimentation through demo reels in the video game industry that will propel any students after me who are interested in a career in game audio.

N3-VR AUDIO SYSTEM EXPLANATION

This is a demonstration of my approach to integrating the Audio System to “N3-VR’s” Unity Project using Scriptable Objects, Unity’s Event System, and custom C# Scripts. I go over my role as Audio Lead, the creation and implementation of the audio system, and the problems I faced as an audio programmer. Near the end, I discuss what I’d do better next time and some tools I would be able to use in conjunction with every custom tool I utilize in the video.

N3-VR (pronounced “Never”) is a first-person puzzle game. Its protagonist, Little Drone, is a robot whose task is to repair a seemingly derelict frigate called Pan’s Flight to ensure that it can reach its final destination.
