The film earned a place in the New Zealand International Film Festival and played in Auckland, screening before the marine conservation documentary 'Blue'.
Play by Play Award for Excellence in Audio
PikPok has won the Play by Play award for Excellence in Audio for the sound on Doomsday Clicker!
This title was the second of the clicker style games we made music for. This game utilizes both the medieval and blues genres to create a unique soundtrack, Also included are some more of the comedy titles that we have become known for.

Giant Killer Robots
We made the official trailer soundtrack for this project, Weta Workshop's Giant Killer Robots Kickstarter video which was very exciting for us as avid board game enthusiasts. The project was funded in 4.5 hours! On this project, there were over 162 individual robot SFX sounds in the trailer alone.
Composition, including "Hapsi" jingle by Broghan Paige. Composition and SFX by Jayde Marter. Guitar by Kent Hogan
Made by AwesomeSource for PikPok. A full soundtrack is included under the 'game music' tab. This game presented some unique design challenges, particularly in fight sequences, where multiple loops play as intensity increases during battles. Each faction also has their own full theme.
Doomsday Clicker has received much acclaim for its soundtrack. In addition to the jazzy comedy titles 'Have You Pushed The Button Yet' and 'Why Did You [Do Something So Wrong]' by Broghan Paige, the unobtrusive in-game music has received much praise, and gave us an opportunity to showcase our skills at a different genre. Jayde's sound design added so much to the atmosphere of this game, receiving mention from players and reviewers alike.
Monsters Ate My Metropolis
Monsters Ate My Metropolis was one of our most successful titles to date. The soundtrack quickly became a major feature in the reviews Pikpok recieved, particularly 'The Winniest Winner' [the winning screen anthem] by Broghan Paige. We also wrote and recorded the music for a trailer that was unfortunately abandoned, but was still a lot of fun. Jayde's sound design for each of the attack cards featured in the game gets a lot of laughs - particularly the 'pew pew' lasers featured on the winning screen.
