Dev diary | Shadows of the Damned and the sound of vomit and upchucking

In this latest dev diary, Suda 51 and sound engineer Akira Yamaoka discuss the sounds of Shadows of the Damned. Sounds, which we are told, are that of “vomit and upchucking”. (as you would expect from a game packed with demon pubes and skin shedding girlfriends.)
