Videogame sound effects creators have far too much fun. More than us even. Well, they do if they're creating wince-inducing neck-snap and gory dismemberment sounds for Digital Extremes' action game Dark Sector, anyway.
As it turns out, this involves extreme fruit and veggie abuse, a practice common the in darker corners of Norfolk where the sheep breathe sighs of relief. Have melon? Smash it, smash it with a hammer. Rip celery apart like a real man! And finger a zucchini to produce... squelchy sounds. Don't even go there.
But enough of this, we could go on all day. You can watch all this in a trailer produced by the Dark Sector team - viewable below - which ends with a floor strewn with fruit and vegetable body parts. And to think there are millions starving around the world...
