Jared Emerson-Johnson

I make music for video games.

Hi! I'm Jared Emerson-Johnson.

Since 2002 I've been the music man at Bay Area Sound—writing music, creating sound design, directing voiceover and acting in all sorts of games and occasionally in other media.

You may know me from my scores to the Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us series from Telltale Games, or perhaps you have found yourself here because of my more recent work on Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Tales From The Borderlands.

Regardless of what initially brought you here, welcome! I hope I can provide you with whatever you're looking for—if not, please feel free to reach out and ask!

Harrison Pink Played Through All Of "Sam & Max Save the World"

This past Sunday, my good buddy Harrison Pink set up a live stream and played through all of "Sam & Max Save the World" as a farewell/homage to Telltale Games (he just left TTG after 3.5 years for a new design job at 2K Marin).

Various guests joined him for individual episodes, including Dave Grossman, Nick Herman, Mark Darin, Shaun Finney, Jolie Menzel, Seth Rosen, Juan Vaca and myself. You can watch the archived video of the play through here. It's quite a blast-from-the-past.
