                   An Aspie Life

'Autism cannot be seen, it cannot be heard, and it cannot be experienced by people unless you have it. You cannot describe autism because it is so complex, and how do you explain your life if you don’t know what ‘real’ life is like? So how can the public’s opinion on autism change? By allowing people to experience what it is like to be an Aspie (Asperger’s) through a game. “An Aspie Life” brings to life the hard and commonly misunderstood world of autism. By having players play out the life of an autistic person, their actions in the game will have to adapt to how an autistic person sees the world in an ordinary everyday life. The game is hopefully going to change the public perception or at least make people realise, what autism “really” is'.   

Greenlit on Steam and winner of multiple awards, working with EnderLost Studios on this game has been an amazing experience. When given the brief and reading that the soundtrack needs to take influence from 80s-90s electronic music, I couldn't wait to get involved. Taken inspiration from films such as 'Blade Runner' and bands such as 'Boards of Canada' the aim was to create music that not only stylistically worked but was completely unique in its own right.
