Morrissey says crowdfunding is “desperate” and “insulting”, but that isn’t stopping Tegan and Sara, Metric, METZ, and other bands from getting on board.
Tegan and Sara, Metric, METZ, Lights, July Talk, Fucked Up, Cadence Weapon, and Austra are being featured in indie video game LOUD on Planet X.
Pop Sandbox, a small studio in Toronto, is building the game. They say they don’t have the resources to put the game out on their own, so they’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign.
The game is similar to Plants vs Zombies. Users have to stop approaching aliens using a variety of moves, tapping in time to the music. Each artist will have two playable tracks in the game.
The game will be released on PlayStation and Steam, and will eventually come to iOS and Android. If the campaign raises $75,000 the game will also be released on Wii U.
Rewards include guitar picks, signed prints of the bands, and more.
