What is the role of computer game audio? What formal functions does game audio have? These are central questions in this paper which seeks to outline an overview of the functionalities of sound in games. Based on a concluding chapter in my Ph.D. dissertation in which formal functions are identified and discussed, this paper will be a sum-up of some of the most crucial points in my current Ph.D. research on the functionality of sound and music in computer games. The research shows that game audio has important functions related to actions and events in the game world, and also related to the definition and delimitation of spaces in computer games.
