Warner Music Group is collaborating with Swedish game studio Hello There Games for a new rhythm game.
Invector: Rhythm Galaxy is a narrative rhythm game with the soundtrack of 40 hits from different music genres. Players navigate breathtaking, celestial landscapes while mastering the beat of top hits from artists like Charlie Puth, PinkPantheress, Duran Duran and many more.
The game follows the successful AVICII Invector co-developed by Hello There Games and Avicii itself. The latest game will use WMG’s global artists to create a rhythm game that appeals to a wide range of tastes. Players fly through eight living cosmic landscapes, either solo or in 2 or 4 player local multiplayer.
This is WMG’s first foray into game publishing and demonstrates the company’s commitment to delivering engaging, interactive experiences.
“This entry into gaming demonstrates our commitment to redefining the boundaries of music and how it is being defined by artists and fans alike in our evolving ecosystem,” added Oana Ruxandra, Chief Digital Officer and EVP, Business Development, WMG. “Invector: Rhythm Galaxy combines the power of music with the interaction of games to create active, immersive experiences for fans and new revenue streams for WMG artists.”
“At Hello There Games, our unwavering passion for music and gaming drives our drive,” added Oskar Eklund, CEO and Founder of Hello There Games. “Many of our team members are talented musicians themselves. We are so excited to take this game to the next level with Warner Music Group and their amazing artists. We can’t wait for everyone to experience the magic.”
Invector: Rhythm Galaxy will be available on PC on July 14th, with console release dates to follow later. Being an avid gamer myself, it’s hard not to mention how awesome the game looks Audiosurf– a game from 2008 that turns .mp3s into racetracks.
