Amberian Dawn, The Atlas Moth, And More Describe Their Band Video Games

Arcade Sushi asked musicians from a variety of metal bands what would happen if a developer made a game specifically about them.

The full article includes answers from Sworn Enemy, Avatar, Red Fang, Lord Dying, Vintersorg, and more. Excerpts from the article follow:

The Atlas Moth

If The Atlas Moth had a video game it would be a survival horror game set at an immigration office. You'd have to sneak around solving puzzles and collecting paperwork, while avoiding being spotted and killed by border guards. It could be called Temporary Resident Evil.

Pet the Preacher

Our game would be called "Oh Sh--." It is a roleplaying game where you have to locate and capture a preacher who is on a rampage in a big, futuristic city. He is drunk, drugged and violent, raging around town comitting crimes and partying. You are the preacher's son, and every time you see him do something sick in the news or read about him in a newspaper, you go, "Oh sh--." Also, your character does not have any legs, so he can't catch the preacher, which also means you can't win the game. It will not be a seller.

Amberian Dawn

Amberian Dawn's video game could be named Managing A Band Roulette, where your goal is to start a rock band and try to make it a worldwide success. At first you could choose your band members from a selection of famous musicians. AD's members are on that list, too. Every musician has different skills, abilities, etc. Your choices of musicians are critical, and in the worst case scenario the selected members just hate each other and the band breaks up before even hitting the studio first time. You could also make line-up changes, change your manager, hire a touring crew, etc. The band would need to record albums, make record deals for different territories and try to organize tours. Also getting sponsors is important. The ultimate goal is to become biggest band in the world and do shows for sold out stadiums worldwide.
