  'KARMAFLOW: THE ROCK OPERA VIDEOGAME' IS UNVEILED WITH AN ALL-STAR CAST
3 July 2014





What began as a graduation assignment in September 2013, has become an ambitious, full-fledged and multidisciplinary art project. 'Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame' is the world's first rock opera videogame.

In the game - a puzzle platformer or adventure game - music plays an important role. as the story is brought to you 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. This cast features:

Simone Simons (Epica)
Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth)
Marc Hudson (Dragonforce)
Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica)
Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy)

The musical score is performed by the Metropole Orkest, the world's biggest professional pop and jazz orchestra, and band members of Epica, Textures and Within Temptation.

'Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame' has several storylines. It 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.

Making choices is very important for the course of the game and the music, which - just like in the real world - revolves around balance and opposites like men versus nature, opposite religions, rich versus poor, etc.



The game will be released early 2015, for PC and MAC.

Watch the trailer here:



The rock opera will also be released as an album in October 2014, and there will also be a Karmaflow in Concert series around the same time. The big finale will take place in early 2015 with two shows in 's-Hertogenbosch in the southern Netherlands.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
