With the upcoming release of the highly-anticipated Rise on the Tomb Raider, Xbox and Crystal Dynamics announced a collaboration with Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman and Academy Award-nominated musician Karen O which will bring an original song created expressly for the game to fans worldwide. 

Entitled “I Shall Rise,” not only will the track be featured in the game, but it is the soundtrack to both the launch trailer and the global TV campaign for Rise of the Tomb Raider, and has been released digitally today on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and a variety of other streaming or download services where music is available.

Rememoried, A Surrealist Exploration Into Infinity Where Memories Become Dream

16579486688_88a649848a_z

To be completely honest, I’m not entirely sure what to think of this game… From the trailer I get the sense that Rememoried will be a deeply zen-like experience where you pass through the metaphysical blurring the lines of existence as the stars take shape. However if you look closely, I get the sense that there is much more to this title than the trailer lets on, something ominous and perhaps haunting.

Rememoried is a surrealist explorative first-person adventure game. A virtual place where memories change to dreams and the only possible way is forgetting, which becomes a mechanism for proceeding to the next layer of dreams.

“You count the stars above your head just like the one who pointed a finger at you from the unknown. The closer you get to infinity, the more you get lost in the numbers created to describe the real world, and your eyelids become curtains that hide unexpected discoveries beyond the borders, reached by only the strongest thoughts. This exciting play for one spectator is a reward for everyday gifts of the mind.”
