Published Feb 11, 2014Radiohead's The King of Limbs came out way back in 2011, but the album has got a new lease on life thanks to PolyFauna, a mobile app inspired by the LP.
Created by Radiohead and UK-based digital arts studio Universal Everything, it draws from the sessions for The King of Limbs, specifically the imagery and sounds from the opening cut "Bloom."
According to a brief write-up from Thom Yorke, "It comes from an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious."
He further included the following brief set of instructions for how the game works:
Your screen is the window into an evolving world.
Move around to look around.
You can follow the red dot.
You can wear headphones.
PolyFauna is available for either iOS or Android. Oh, and it's free.
