Fans of the revered Swedish EDM music DJ, AVICII, can celebrate his life and stunning musical vision in a new rhythm-action game, AVICII Invector, which launches globally today on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 Entertainment System and Windows PC via Steam and Utomik.
Created and developed by Hello There Games in partnership with Wired Productions, and with the full support of AVICII Music, AVICII Invector is a fast-paced rhythm experience which fuses AVICII’s trademark brand of uplifting EDM music with serene visualscapes to allow everyone to feel and experience his music in a new way.
Bringing AVICII’s completed vision to multiple platforms for the very first time, this new release includes a host of enhancements with three iconic and never before played tracks plus a new playable world, inspired by the album Tim and featuring a solitary environment brought to live with color and the beats of AVICII’s genius.
“Tim wanted to spread positivity through his music. I hope that this rhythm game – with more than two dozen of Tim’s songs – will give joy to his fans,” said Klas Bergling, Tim’s father. “Tim developed Avicii Invector together with Hello There Games a few years ago and we are now happy to make it available on more platforms. All Avicii’s net proceeds from the Invector game will be donated to the Tim Bergling Foundation to prevent mental illness among young people.”
AVICII Invector is part of an outpouring of support and recognition for the Swedish DJ and music producer. This news follows the selling out of the AVICII Tribute Concert, which was held in Stockholm December 5th, and where names including Rita Ora, Kygo, David Guetta and more honored the late musician.
Tim Bergling, aka AVICII, himself a lifelong gamer, worked on AVICII Invector for two years and saw the game’s original release come to fruition on PS4™. Today’s multi-platform release 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.
The team at Wired Productions and Hello There Games are consummate music fans and aim to make an impact with its efforts. All of AVICII Music’s net proceeds 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. An additional donation per unit will be made by Wired Productions and Hello There Games to the Video Games mental health charity Safe In Our World.
“AVICII Invector celebrates AVICII’s life and music by immersing players inside the pulsing rhythms, evocative lyrics, and heart-tugging melodies he created,” said Leo Zullo, Managing Director of Wired Productions. “He was an amazing talent and I hope and believe this project will bring Tim Bergling’s wonderful spirit to a world that can benefit from it.”
