A new video game called “Karmaflow” will feature the voices of Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth and Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz, I have discovered.
Marc Hudson of DragonForce and Epica’s Simone Simons will also be featured in the game.
The game is touted as “the world’s first rock opera video game.”
According to a presser, what began as a graduation assignment for students of the University of Arts Utrecht in The Netherlands last fall has become an ambitious, full-fledged and multi-disciplinary art project.
“Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame” is a “puzzle platformer” or “adventure game” in which music plays a key role.
The story unfolds in the form of a rock opera. An all-star cast steps into the shoes of the game’s characters and brings the story singing, or something.
Tony Kakko from Sonata Arctica is also part of the game.
The musical score for it is performed by the Metropole Orkest (the world’s biggest professional pop and jazz orchestra) and band members of Epica, Textures, and Within Temptation.
