JERUSALEM, June 24th 2020 – Capricia Productions games studio is excited to announce the joining of Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) to the game “Of Bird and Cage“, which is currently under development. Danny will be performing the vocal parts for the character Ari who is in a romantic relationship with the game’s protagonist Gitta, voiced by Kobra Paige from Kobra and the Lotus.
“Of Bird and Cage” is the first rock/metal album completely produced as a story-driven narrative video game, aspiring to establish a new gaming genre of interactive musicals. The project features an array of other well-known musicians like Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses) Rob van der Loo (Epica), Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation), Casey Grillo (Kamelot), Rocky Grey (ex-Evanescence) and many others.
Danny’s vocal parts have already been recorded, and Capricia’s development team believes that he has introduced a whole new level of complexity to the character, who is one of the most challenging roles within the game. “It was an absolute honor to work with Danny. He is a professional, and he understood that in this case, he was not just singing a “normal” vocal line, but voicing a complicated character, who already has his own personality and voice. We believe Danny not only captured Ari perfectly, but also added his own personality to the character and made him even more interesting“, says Arnold Nesis, Capricia’s CEO and music composer/producer.
There is still no official release date for “Of Bird and Cage”, but we can reveal that the game is coming very soon and we are planning to make it available no later than early 2021. However, gamers can already wishlist “Of Bird and Cage” on Steam. The game will also be available on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch.
Regarding his participation, Danny said “We’ve had a lot of fun making this – it’s an entirely new approach, an entirely new concept and a way to absorb the video game platform that I believe you guys are going to enjoy. There are a lot of incredible other musicians who’ve been involved in the casting, the creation, the scoring and the performance within this video game and I would just want to say thank you to all of them who’ve been involved, and thank you to everyone who has created Of Bird and Cage for having me on board.”
