Imagine if a shooter and Rock Band had an Indie baby. That is roughly what Pop Sandbox’s LOUD on Planet X is. Protect your stage from hordes of aliens. Your weapon? The rhythm. Tap away to the beat of the song to make sure your day of life has an encore.
This title releases on April 19th for PS4 and Steam, followed by the iOS/Android launch on April 21st. LOUD on Planet X features songs from some of the top indie artists such as Tegan and Sara, Purity Ring, METZ, Metric, Lights, July Talk, F*cked Up, Cadence Weapon, and Austra. There will also be three original scores created by Mike Haliechuk and Jonah Falco of F*cked Up, Brendan Canning and Justin Peroff of Broken Social Scene, and Harrison. Use makeshift weapons such as speakers, bouncers, fog machines and many more to take down the oncoming horde.
“It’s been an incredible experience working with such talented musicians and their enthusiasm for the game has been a driving force,” said Alex Jansen, Co-Founder of Pop Sandbox. “Being able to present their likenesses along with their amazing music combined with LOUD on Planet X’s solid controls is something we’re sure fans will enjoy, so we’re looking forward to sharing it with lovers of both music and games.”
There will be three more artists announced the week of release, so be sure to keep an eye to see what Pop Sandbox has in store!
