All in! Games and Capricia Productions have released a new gameplay trailer for Of Bird and Cage, which is coming to Nintendo Switch.
This is the first rock and metal album to be produced as a story-driven narrative game, with the developer “aspiring to establish a new gaming genre of interactive musicals.”
You play as 25-year-old drug addict Gitta Barbot, who must escape the physical and mental prison of her captor, Bres Lupus. Challenged to make quick choices that have dire consequences, you will see how your actions open up new paths while you struggle to maintain your sanity.
With the chance to “experience the overwhelming power of metal music like never before,” you can “let symphonic metal lead you through a two-hour-long story of trauma, violence, and madness based lightly on Beauty and the Beast.”
The project stars well-known musicians like Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses) Rob van der Loo (Epica), Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation), Casey Grillo (Kamelot) Rocky Grey (ex-Evanescence), Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) and more.
Of Bird and Cage will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
