Jump In And Battle It Out

Clean Cuts is proud to announce the work our team has done for the release of two new games that are making waves in the gaming world!


The Clean Cuts team has finally come up for air after three years working on the highly anticipated Oculus Rift/Rift S exclusive “Asgard’s Wrath.” In this epic VR action-adventure RPG game inspired by Norse mythology, you play as a fledgling god, possess mortal heroes, and transform animals into loyal warriors.

This is the sixth release with our long time friends at Sanzaru Games as their dedicated audio team. Our collaboration has grown over the years and we all worked hard to make sure the soundscape is every bit as rich as the immersive visual world.

“Asgard’s Wrath is a fantastic action-adventure RPG that can stand with the best of them on consoles and PC, but the fact that it’s meticulously crafted for VR means it sits in a league of its own”
– Gabriel Moss, IGN

Our audio lead Jared Bartlett and sound designer Tristan Panniers took the reigns on sound design, FMOD implementation and the overall mix. Everyone on the Clean Cuts team touched some part of the project in order to make the (virtual) reality come true. We crafted everything you hear across the six sagas in the game: unique weapons, intimidating creature voices, and lush ambiences.

Creating the assets for the 30+ hour epic was half the challenge but the step of FMOD implementation and mixing breathed life into every sound and immersed the player fully into the world of Asgard’s Wrath.


NBA 2K20

Clean Cuts is proud to have continued its 6th year of collaboration with Visual Concepts and 2k Sports for the release of NBA 2k20. This is the 20th installment of the world’s best selling NBA video game series– it has been critically acclaimed and nominated for numerous awards since 1999. This year’s game features celebrities such as Idris Elba, Thomas Middleditch, Rosario Dawson, and Lebron James!

“On the court, NBA 2K20 is a dazzling experience that matches the energy and presentation of its real-life counterpart”
– Ben Vollmer, IGN

Lead by Cory Marsello and Jonathan Miller, our team provided sound design and mixed all the MyCareer cinematics, following MyPlayer’s path from college all the way through the championship parade.

Along the journey we created dynamic locker room chatter, edited radio shows, crafted ambiences, and added detailed layers of audio for the Live Locker Room that changed based on how My Player performs. This was the most immersive year yet!

Be sure to check out all of our hard work, and the work of our friends at Visual Concepts in this year’s game, released on September 6th!
