Title: Harry Potter 9 3/4 Platform Sound Walk

 

A sound-walk built with Unity, attempting to imitate process of a new Hogwarts student (Harry) trying to find a way to enter the 9-3/4 Platform in the first Harry Potter movie.

Apart from the train station ambient sound or background music, we've also added sound from characters like Hagrid, Mrs. Wesley, Ron and Hermione when you walk by.

So basically, a model made in Minecraft is imported in the scene, and with certain collision boxes and airwalls, I kind of create a walkable path for player to explore.

The idea in terms of designing the sound walk is rather straight forward. Most of which are triggered when a player goes into the collision area. For example the only carriage a player can get into is the first one of the main train, and when passing by you can hear the voice of Hermione, inside the train which has a picture of the classic moment in the movie through the window.

Generally, a cool experience; an exciting practice on handling Unity & sound experience design.
