New Video Game Lets You To Control Your Favourite Indie Bands

Ever wanted to know how it feels to be as reckless as Damian Abraham? Introducing "'Loud on Planet X"

Music nerds and video game nerds unite! Finally both things have come together in something (we think is) cooler than Guitar Hero. Beloved Canadian acts like July Talk, Metric, Fucked Up, Tegan and Sara, and more are ready to be your bandmates in a brand new game called LOUD on Planet X. Indie88 is extremely excited to be one of the parteners in launching this game. Stay tuned for more details on that soon!

We could tell you more, but we’ll let the creators do that:

LOUD on Planet X is an arcade-style indie music game featuring Tegan and Sara, METZ, Metric, Lights, July Talk, F*cked Up, Cadence Weapon, Austra and more. Choose from a cross-section of top current indie music artists, then defend your stage from hordes of quirky aliens by tapping to the music and using a fun assortment of makeshift weapons like speakers, strobe lights, fog machines, amplifiers, bouncers and custom special attacks! LOUD on Planet X is an exciting indie alternative to Rock Band or Guitar Hero with a splash of Plants vs Zombies – a new hybrid of rhythm game and classic shooter with tower defence elements.

Here’s Raina chatting with Broken Social Scene’s Justin Peroff about scoring the Loud on Planet X video game.
