Dream Theater reveal The Astonishing video game

null

Dream Theater will release video game based on 13th album The Astonishing in April, they’ve confirmed.

It’s been created in conjunction with Turbo Tape Games and it’ll be available on PC, Mac, iOS and Android platforms. The download is to be free, with a one-off charge to play beyond the first two levels.

Turbo Tape say: “The Astonishing game is based on the album’s story, setting, and characters, giving players an opportunity to further experience the world of Ravenskill and the GNEAm while battling Empirical forces and securing man-made artistry’s place in the futuristic world.

“Tactical gameplay and a storyline that progresses with the player make this a can’t-miss experience for gamers and music fans alike.”

The Astonishing was released on January 29. Dream Theater are currently touring Europe, playing the album in full, with North American dates to follow.
