Might Box Games say of the application “Will Love Tear Us Apart” is a free-to-play browser-game about relationships on the brink of breaking up. It is inspired by Joy Division’s Love Will Tear Us Apart and follows the song in delivering a dark and frustrating perspective on love. (…) WLTUA encourages players to reflect on the darker side of love: mis-communication, emotional impasse and the sadness of separation. Solace may be found in the brief moment of lightness that comes over us when we come to terms with the reality of an irreconcilable relationship.”
A video trailer for the game has been released;
Players must learn to accept that not all relationships are salvageable. Each level of the game is inspired by a verse of “Love Will Tear Us Apart.”
