Many video games these days boast having a dynamic soundtrack, but that usually just means the score kicks into a high tempo beat when you start shooting. Mark Brown (@britishgaming) shares some more inventive uses of adaptive audio.

This episode is best watched while wearing headphones.

This is the pilot episode of Game Maker's Toolkit - a YouTube series about interesting snippets of game design that perhaps aren't widely used, known about, discussed, or appreciated.
