Toronto electro-pop duo Purity Ring have been added to the indie game Loud on Planet X.
They join Tegan and Sara, Metric, Fucked Up, METZ, Austra, Lights, July Talk, and Cadence Weapon.
The makers of the game, Pop Sandbox, have also offered up a free stream of Brendan Canning and Justin Peroff of Broken Social Scene’s secondary score for the game as well as a Kickstarter video explaining the project;
Supporters will have access to an exclusive limited edition 7″ single and artwork from indie comic artist Michael DeForge. Loud on Planet X is a tower defence game where you select an artist or band and use a variety of power-ups to defend your stage from a horde of alients.
Pop Sandbox is aiming for a fall 2015 release on PS4, PS Vita, Steam, iOS, and Android. Head here for the Kickstarter page for a video showing gameplay and members of the bands participating talking about the project, what video game character they would invite to be in their band and their favourite retro games.
Purity Ring will play Field Trip at Fort York in Toronto on June 6.
