Torche want you to play with them

Posted by on February 6, 2015

torchegameWe love Torche’s blend of sludge, pop and metal, and with their new album (and Relapse debut) Restarter coming out on February 24, many more will get a chance to hear them. And while music fans will enjoy the band, there might be some gamers turned on to them, as the band debuted a side-scrolling video game today. Torche Vs. Robots: Annihilation Affair was released today, and it’s an ’80s-influenced game  that will probably appeal to anyone that had an original Nintendo NES. The game has players playing as band members, on a quest to save Miami from being taken over by robots. Available now as a desktop game, a mobile version is coming soon.

Playing the game is fun, and occasionally frustrating, as there’s only one life. However, it’s worth it for a few reasons: first of all, you get to hear music from Restarter as you’re playing the game. And you can also win a prize pack by beating the game. Consisting of the new album on vinyl, a t-shirt, two tickets to see them on tour and some stickers, all you have to do is upload a video of yourself to YouTube beating the game and using the hashtag #torchevsrobots. There will be one prize pack per band member given away with the winners being picked on Monday, February 23, so get to playing!
