Every once in a while, a video game comes along that is built around a premise so unique that one cannot help but be excited about the title. Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame is a game that fits this billing perfectly.
Slated as the world’s first rock opera video game, Karmaflow is a wonderfully unique spin on the traditional gaming experience. In Karmaflow, the game’s story is presented entirely in the form of a brilliant rock opera, masterfully sung by some of the world’s most talented rock voices.
Simone Simmons (Epica), Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth), Marc Hudson (Dragonforce), Tony Kakko (Sonata Artica) and Allisa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy) all have lent their vocal talents to Karmaflow, along with the Metropole Orchestra working on the game’s score.
Karmaflow sets itself out from other contemporary titles in multiple ways, with the game’s massive emphasis on music being the most obvious. While other video games may treat sound and music design as a nice additional feature, in Karmaflow, music is everything to the game’s experience. The persistent rock opera singing guides the players on an epic journey that changes depending on their choices, which in turn affects the tone of the music heard.
Karmaflow is set to release in 2015 for PC and Mac machines. For more information regarding this sonorous video game experience, be sure to check out the game’s official website.
