The Motorleague Release Their Own RPG Videogame Ahead of Canadian Summer Tour
Published Jul 08, 2014Moncton punks the Motorleague have just released a clip for their song "Oh, How the Might Have Fallen" from last year's Acknowledge, Acknowledge, but this is more than just your average music video: it's a commercial for the band's very own videogame, Atlantic Canada: The RPG.
A press release calls it "a '90s style videogame reminiscent of Final Fantasy and other classics of the RPG genre." It allows users to play as members of the Motorleague as they explore Atlantic Canada's music scene and vanquish a bass-playing villain named PJ. It was built primarily by the band's own frontman Don Levandier.
The video for "Oh, How the Might Have Fallen" is at the bottom of this page, and game is available for free right here. Note that it's made for Windows, although there are instructions for how Mac users can get it to work.
Below, check out the band's summer tour schedule. Appropriately enough, it centres on Atlantic Canada.
The Motorleague have showcased a love of vintage videogames before; their video for "Failsafes" was a quiz on classic games.
