Metal fans will want to take note of the fact that a new demo for Of Bird and Cage will soon release during the Steam Game Festival: Autumn Edition. Why is that? Well, this particular title happens to be an interactive concept album, which was written and composed by acclaimed artists from both the rock and metal scenes.
Some of the acclaimed artists who took part in the recording Of Bird and Cage are Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Rob van der Loo (Epica), and Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation). The characters are voiced by Kobra Paige (Kobra and the Lotus), Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria), and Davidavi ‘Vidi’ Dolev (Gunned Down Horses). As a blend of two media, a game and a music album, Of Bird and Cage is said to be one of the most ambitious, independent projects entering the market next year.
This thirty minute long demo — which will be available from October 7th to October 13th — is said to be the perfect introduction to this title. One that is being called a “dark and mature version of Beauty and the Beast.”
Of Bird and Cage isn’t just coming to PC. It’s also in the works for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch. Expect to be able to play the full thing sometime in 2021.
