21st March 2022 Games New Hires

We’re excited to announce that Darren Lambourne has joined Sumo Digital as Senior Principal Sound Designer, based in our Sumo Sheffield office.

In his previous role at Cloud Imperium Games, Darren served as Principal Sound Designer and Audio Director, working on Star Citizen. Before joining Cloud Imperium Games, he had also worked as Senior Sound Designer at Ninja Theory, where he contributed on projects including action-adventure titles Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and Devil May Cry 5.

“Sound design and music for games is a passion that started for me in the 80s and became my career in the mid 90s,” said Darren. “My first proper in-house job was with Gremlin and, after many moons, I feel like I’m returning to my roots with Sumo.

“I’m really excited to meet new colleagues, reconnect with some of the old school and to bring all the things I’ve learned along the way to our games and culture.”

“I’m delighted to welcome Darren to Sumo,” said Sumo Digital Studio Audio Director Pat Phelan. “Darren is a true industry veteran and brings with him over 30 years of experience in video game audio. I’m very much looking forward to seeing our teams benefit from his insights and creative approach.”
