With the Sound Effects by Photics collection, you can get a jump start on audio files for your next game or video project. Volume 1 contains 500 sound files. The collection can be licensed for only $5. That’s 1¢ for each file. These quick-hit sounds were custom made specifically for game development, but they can also be used for movies and website. These .WAV files are short quick hits, for tiny yet powerful immersion. Hollywood and radio style sound production techniques were studied for the creation of these sounds. The result is a variety of uses for these sounds. The sound files are saved as .WAV files, mono, 44100Hz. A significant percentage of the sound files can be looped.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q – Can I use these in an unlimited amount of projects?
A – If you’re the original licensee, yeah sure, have fun.
Q – Are these just lots of different versions of the same sound?
A – I tried to make each sound a bit unique and I tried to add a good variety of sounds. Some sounds might sound similar. But overall, I think that the collection has a lot of diversity. You could make a cooking game, a sci-fi alien game, or maybe even an alien-cooking game.
Q – I still don’t believe you. These sounds are probably lousy.
A – I use these sounds in my own game projects.
Q – I don’t know. How can I trust you?
A – Photics.com has been online for over a decade.
Q – Can I edit the sounds?
A – Yeah sure, but you’re not permitted to resell derivative works. If you edit the sounds and throw it into a hit song, that’s cool. If you edit the sounds and create your own sound effects collection, that’s not permitted.
Q – How do I edit these sounds?
A – If you need an editing program, Audacity might be helpful.
Q – I’m not that good with making games though. Can you help?
A – I wrote The Unofficial GameSalad Textbook, that book was written to make it even easier to make games with GameSalad.
Q – Do you have samples of the sounds?
A – You can check the “Free .WAV Wednesday” articles for some free samples. There’s a list of the sounds on the next page. (Note: The file sizes are close estimates, but that should give you a better idea of what to expect from the sound collection.)
