Earlier this year, an animated series based on the video game Galaga was announced during San Diego Comic-Con. Now, the series is also getting an immersive experience.
Nuttery Entertainment and Meow Wolf are collaborating on the experience, which connects the animated “Galaga” series to physical exhibitions, merchandise, live media, and a new annual gaming competition called Score Wars. The immersive content launches during Galaga World Championship in Santa Fe, New Mexico on March 29, 2018.
The first installment in the anime-inspired series is tentatively titled “Galaga Chronicles | Revolution Age.”
“Meow Wolf’s work with The Nuttery to evolve classic ’80s arcade magic into 21st-century vision and experience is huge news for gamers old and new,” said Vince Kadlubek, Meow Wolf CEO. “There’s been a lot of exciting productions in this area in recent years, but ‘Galaga Chronicles’ will set a new standard.”
The Galaga video game, which was developed and published by Namco Japan and Midway in North America in 1981, put players in control of a starfighter. Gamers racked up points by moving left and right along the bottom of the playfield, destroying insect-like alien creatures.
