Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Sound Effects|
A collection of new sound effects for Doom (registered only), all carefully
sampled from the BBC Audio Collection of the Hitchhiker's Guide To The
Galaxy, by Douglas Adams. |
For those of you unawares, the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy is a
wholly remarkable book, and also a wholly remarkable audio collection.
The BBC Radiophonic Workshop created most of these sound effects, however
a few were provided by real-live actors in real-live recording studios.
I've chosen these effects to keep the game playable, that is, without
massively interfering with the gameplay. I may be adding more sounds later,
as my time permits. I stopped at 9 sounds, when I realized the file was
already up to 156K. With the future installation of my time-space fabric
folding desk accessory, I should have already done many more sound effects
before I even typed this file. See the Guide under 'verb tenses'.
|Anonymous||Seven sounds from (interestingly enough) the BBC radio version of "The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" rather than the TV show. Covers doors, death, zaps and "aha, I see you" noises. Probably less amusing than it was in 1994, when Douglas Adams was still big in the sci-fi community, and the sci-fi community had a huge overlap with the computer games world. Nowadays I imagine Adams' work is becoming more and more obscure, as there is no more of it.||x|
