Free Sound Effects for Video Games

I did all my own sound effects for Bub Block with the help of a cheap microphone and several household objects. But for Craftimals, there are some sounds I don’t know how (and just don’t want) to do. So I’ve been looking for free alternatives and came across two websites: Free Sound and Sound Jay.

Both of these are great resources and offer a lot of free-to-use stuff. Everything on Sound Jay is free, but with Free Sound, you have to be careful about the individual licenses. Some sounds are public domain while others require attribution (and others still can’t be used for commercial purposes). Still, if you need free sounds, check ‘em out.

As my way of giving back to the community, I’d like to make the sound effects for Bub Block available. You can download the 20-file zip pack here and use them in your game or movie free of charge. The only stipulation is that you can’t sell them or repackage them as your own. The sounds include several dropping and breaking effects, clicks, opening/closing noises, and two saw blades. Enjoy!
