About Jory Prum

 

Jory was an audio designer and programmer genius, based in California, who became a symbol to the industry in Norway. He spent much of his life helping everyone he crossed paths with, by sharing knowledge and tips freely to make sure people did things right the first time around.


Having passed away in 2016, last few years he was crucial in the Norwegian game scene and been more than central to shaping up initiatives to support the growing industry and helping everyone out, GAiN being one of them. To make our games sound as good as possible, he connected people through his huge network of friends, helped several local teams find perfect voice actors for their characters, designed sounds, edited music, implemented hooks, made suggestions, held talks and workshops. He was continuously present and immensely valuable to us as a professional in his field as well as a dear friend. 

It is in the spirit of Jory that we create this award, for truly we all can aspire to being someone as excellent as Jory Prum.
