KARMAFLOW: New opera rock videogame

KARMAFLOW is a third person puzzle/platform adventure, and the world's first rock opera video game. The game is aimed at immersion and experience, and brings a new take on the genre of "rock opera". The team developing the game is formed by 24 members, among whom you'll find some who have worked for Guerillia Games, Ronimo or Triumph Studios. They feel really enthusiastic with the project and hope to bring a never seen (and heard) before experience through the medium of video game. 

In a rich fantasy setting, you take on the role of the Karmakeeper, who is responsible for maintaining the balance in different worlds. You will travel to these worlds and have to save the Guardian Spirits that live there, by finding and unlocking the long lost Karmaflows.

Through puzzling, platforming and exploration, you will be treated to an extensive story told through interactive music. The Karmakeeper will gain new abilities while making his way through rich environments, and uses sources of Good Karma he can find in the world to drive out the Bad Karma that led to the Guardian Spirits' downfall.



But wait... this is a blog about rock/metal music. Where is music here??
The music is a huge driving force behind the game's experience, and will make use of a complex adaptive system (in other words, the music will react to your actions and your surrounding). The musical style will be a mixture of rock/metal, orchestral music, several ethnic instruments and a cast of 10 awesome singers, who will tell you the story behind the characters they are portraying in the game.

Now, let's meet the brilliant musicians in the cast:

The Metropole Orchestra is a world famous multi-grammy award winning/nominated Dutch “pop”-orchestra. They have played with acts such as Basement Jaxx, Within Temptation, Junkie XL and many others. 


The following amazing singers (more to be announced soon) will lend their voices to different characters in the game. From left to right: Marc Hudson (Dragonforce), Henning Basse (MaYaN, Uli John Roth), Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Mark Jansen (Epica, MaYaN), Simone Simons (Epica), Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth, Devilment), Mariangela Demurtas (Tristania), Alissa White-Gluz (The Agonist).


Last but not least, the musicians in the picture below will add the rock and metal portion of the soundtrack for Karmaflow:
