Capricia Productions has revealed that Of Bird and Cage is in development for 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.”
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) and more, with Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) the most recently revealed.
Danny will perform the vocal parts for the character Ari who is in a romantic relationship with the game’s protagonist Gitta, voiced by Kobra Paige (Kobra and the Lotus).
“It was an absolute honour to work with Danny. He is a professional, and he understood that in this case, he was not just singing a ‘normal’ vocal line, but voicing a complicated character, who already has his own personality and voice,” explains Capricia Productions CEO, composer and producer Arnold Nesis.
“We believe Danny not only captured Ari perfectly, but also added his own personality to the character and made him even more interesting.”
Danny Worsnop adds: “We’ve had a lot of fun making this – it’s an entirely new approach, an entirely new concept and a way to absorb the video game platform that I believe you guys are going to enjoy.
“There are a lot of incredible other musicians who’ve been involved in the casting, the creation, the scoring and the performance within this video game and I would just want to say thank you to all of them who’ve been involved, and thank you to everyone who has created Of Bird and Cage for having me on board.”
Of Bird and Cage will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
