London-based Wave Studios produced iconic ringtone sounds for Skype, and audio for many famous TV adverts such as the Cadbury’s Gorilla and the Guinness Surfer – now the group is opening its doors to game development studios.

“We took the opportunity to grow the company by grabbing an additional floor in our building. Having worked on games in the past and being a gamer, I couldn’t resist the idea of a dedicated gaming department within Wave,” said company co-founder Johnnie Burn.

Wave is expanding to incorporate a seventh and eighth sound studio. The London base also offers lounge areas for clients to relax or work from.

“The response to our launch tells us we must have got something right, and I’m really looking forward to meeting more new clients over the coming months,” Burn added.

“Whether we’re cajoling a convincing triple-A-worthy vocal performance or creating bespoke sound design for an indie dev, we’re utilising all of our previous experience in film, TV, and digital. Our team are delivering a uniquely creative take on traditional game audio and I can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on.”
