Designing the Soundtrack
The tone I was going for with this soundtrack was "humourous horror", to match the cartooney graphics and the funny storyline. The plot revolves around three characters, so I gave each of them their own instrument as a distinctive voice (such as the tuba for the paladin Rheinholdt, who, now that he's retired, has some weight issues). The music was mostly made using cubase and EastWest sample libraries.
Designing the Sound Effects
One of the team members had a vocal recording booth at home, so we went there and together recorded the vocal sounds for the protagonist and his enemies. Afterwards I processed them in ableton live (mostly pitch-shifting and eq-ing). The other effects were layered and processed samples.
