AVICII Invector is a fast-paced rhythm game that fuses Avicii’s trademark brand of uplifting EDM music with serene visualscapes to allow everyone to feel and experience his music in new ways.
DJ Tim Bergling, aka Avicii, worked on AVICII Invector for two years and saw the game’s original release come to fruition with a first version. The upcoming new multi-platform release (including PC of course) will help to celebrate Avicii’s music and turn up the volume while taking rhythm gaming to new heights. Created in collaboration with the Swedish DJ, and now with his family in his honor, AVICII Invector has become much more of an homage to his music since his tragic passing in 2018. Set against a backdrop of 25 of his biggest hits, Invector lets players fly solo or recreate the party feeling of an Avicii concert with local split-screen racing. Players can join space pilot Stella on her journey from one stunning world to the next, mastering moves as they race through gorgeous landscapes, while hitting the notes with three difficulties to master.
Wired Productions and Hello There Games are huge music fans and aim to make a big splash with this game. Portions of the game royalties will go directly to The Tim Bergling Foundation, which advocates for the recognition of suicide as a global health emergency and promotes removing the stigma attached to the discussion of mental health issues.
Wired Productions and indie studio Hello There Games are proud to announce that 2022 will start in thumping bass fashion as AVICII Invector: Encore Edition comes to Meta Quest 2 on January 27, 2022.
In the memory of Swedish DJ Tim Bergling, most famously known by his professional name, AVICII, Hello There Games and Tim’s father, Klas Bergling, continue Tim’s vision of bringing new ways to experience his music, with AVICII Invector: Encore Edition.
And featuring 35 chart topping tracks such as Peace of Mind, Freak and S.O.S, AVICII Invector brings the futuristic rhythm action gameplay into a VR version for Meta Quest 2 which is available to wishlist now.
“When Tim and I first started talking about Invector, he was actually sent an early prototype VR headset. He was fascinated by the technology and the opportunities it created.” Said Oskar Eklund, the CEO of Hello There Games, “Working with Tim’s father, Klas, to finish this project has been an emotional process for the whole team. We still grieve for Tim, but we came together knowing this was a project he was very passionate about and hope his fans can continue to celebrate and remember AVICII for the light that he was.”
“At Wired, we are all about celebrating the art, music, and developers behind each release. AVICII Invector, in many ways, is our perfect match.” Said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions. “Bringing AVICII Invector to VR has been a labour of love, one that will immerse fans and Meta Quest gamers alike in an unforgettable virtual reality experience. An experience which, I hope, will continue to celebrate Tim’s music and legacy for years to come.”
