Cult Of Luna has taken their cinematic music video for “Cold Burn” and made it into a video game. The game was developed by North Kingdom Games and is available now on Steam. The game centers around the murky world of the video and has players trying to find motes of light throughout the dark landscape.
“‘For as long as we have known Linus Johansson of North Kingdom, which spans from the ‘Leave Me Here’ video in 2004, he’s always tried to push interactivity and blur the line between the artist and the art. So it came as no surprise to us when he suggested making a video game out of the ‘Cold Burn’ video. ‘Go right ahead,’ we said and now we are as intrigued by the result as we hope you are,’ said Johannes Persson of Cult of Luna comments.”
“‘We’ve done many projects within music videos throughout the years with a unique vision. With the brief from Cult of Luna, we saw an interesting creative opportunity to explore what the future holds within music video production – to combine music with real-time technology and interactive storytelling. When we create projects in the intersection between music and gaming, we reach a new audience,’ Linus Johansson at North Kingdom comments.”
