Joy Division Inspire World’s Most Depressing Video Game
Play ‘Will Love Tear Us Apart?’ now, doubt the existence of true love later!
Here’s something no one knew they needed: A video game based on Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart.” Thanks to European developer Mighty Box Games, that need has been satiated. Will Love Tear Us Apart? is a “free-to-play browser-game about relationships on the brink of breaking up,” according to the game’s official website.
Each verse of Joy Division’s signature song represents a different level, and the game as a whole is supposed to encourage players to “reflect on the darker side of love: miscommunication, emotional impasse and the sadness of separation… What guides this game is an ambition to frustrate, upset, and sting the player into remembering the dark days preceding the death of a relationship.” Fun!
