Roblox’s new ‘oof’ sound is a big oof

Read Time:1 Minute, 45 Second

Roblox has gotten rid of the long-lasting “oof” sound your character makes when dying (that even I, as an grownup, can discover some semblance of pleasure in). In a thread on Twitter (via Kotaku), Roblox explains it eliminated the sound “as a consequence of a licensing concern” and changed it with a brand new noise that, for my part, sounds bizarre as hell.

Roblox has had issues with the “oof” sound earlier than. As Kotaku factors out, Intellivision founder Tommy Tallarico initially created the noise for a 2000 sport known as Messiah. Tallarico took concern with the actual fact Roblox was utilizing the noise, and in 2020, Roblox started charging creators $1 (or 100 Robux) to incorporate the sound of their video games to settle the dispute. It’s unclear what led Roblox to take away the sound fully, although. Roblox didn’t reply to The Verge’s request for remark.

You’ll be able to hearken to the brand new loss of life sound within the video embedded beneath, and it’s positively not the meme-worthy noise the “oof” as soon as was (and nonetheless is). Roblox might’ve at the least tried to make the brand new noise sound considerably much like the outdated one, however as an alternative, it changed it with some kind of guttural grunt.

When my character falls off of the map in Pace Run 4, I don’t wish to really feel like I legitimately killed my character… I simply need him to sound like he stubbed his toe or one thing. This new noise makes me really feel as if I’m standing over my character’s deathbed witnessing his final breath.
