If you’re a fan of metal music and tactical board games then this next game was made for you. The Astonishing Game was developed by Turbo Tape Games in collaboration with progressive metal band Dream Theater.
Developed around the concept of the band’s U.S. Billboard Rock Chart #1 album, The Astonishing, this game is set in a dystopian future where rebels use art and music to resist the oppression of a totalitarian government. You can choose between single player campaign or player versus player matches. Choose whether you want to be part of the rebel militia or the evil Great Northern Empire of the Americas. Engage in battles set to the music of Dream Theater and see who gains influence and control over the will of the people. The full scope of the story isn’t realized until you’ve completed the game from both sides of the conflict. You’ll also have the chance to play in competitions where prizes include signed albums and tickets and post-concert passes to Dream Theater shows.
