Joy Division’s iconic ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ becomes a browser game…

The game has been created by Gordon Calleja of Mighty Box Games who are based in Malta and is a free-to-play browser-game about relationships on the brink of breaking up and was inspired by the Joy Division song.

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.”

A Facebook page for the game has been created, which is available at Will Love Tear Us Apart

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
