Detailing the history of this project, Head Game Designer Tommi explains in the Kickstarter that 'until my 28th birthday, I never had a roof over my head during my holidays. Just a tent in a camping site at a metal festival.'
"This is the birthplace of HORNS UP!" the story continues. "We have wished this game to be as similar as possible to the atmosphere experienced during a metal concert: loud, slightly bruised, and exhilarating!
"Over 5,000 metalheads have managed to play-test it. On the ground, before the beginning of many concerts. And we fixed it on the road, listening to their observations. We threw the game on the stage, directly to the bands, for them to try, and this is how we started our cooperation with Lacuna Coil and made this game a reality."
The band's new foray into the world of games arrives via a partnership with Labmasu, with a pre-order campaign kicking off on March 26; then, as things develop, 'new events and new expansions' will be added.
