Morning Star, the first mobile FPS from Alex Seropian and Tim Harris' studio, Industrial Toys, will feature a full musical score from System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian. Seropian and Harris are pretty serious about their premiere, and this sounds like part of that effort to make a truly hardcore mobile game.
"We've been big fans of Serj's for quite some time," Seropian says. "The opportunity to collaborate with him on Morning Star gave us a way to take the game to a whole new level. We knew his score would be unique, but it's his ability to interpret a scene or gameplay element and come up with something that makes it moodier, more dramatic or just more awesome that's really got us pumped."
Tankian, a self-described poet and political activist along with his musical duties, composed the music in the above trailer, for those interested in a teaser.
"I'm really enjoying working on Morning Star because it gives me the ability to create new musical worlds to complement the new visual worlds in the game," Tankian says. "Though most of the gameplay will be action-oriented cues, the stunning artwork and static scenes have inspired unique sounds unheard before."
