During the 2020 edition of The Game Awards, we learned about We are OFK, a new project from Hyper Light Drifter co-designer Teddy Thief and their collaborators at Team OFK. It was supposed to debut in the spring of 2021, but, as has been common in recent years, it was delayed. utilities, We are OFK finally has a release date. Or, rather, release datesbecause it’s an episodic series. The first two episodes will be released on August 18 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PS5, Steam and Epic Games Store. The other three episodes will be released weekly.
We are OFK follows a virtual four piece indie band called, oddly enough, OFK. It is billed as an interactive musical biopic OFK is making about its own origins. as Thief wrote on the PlayStation Blog, “What would it look like to create virtual musicians playing performances by [pop stars] on their laptop in bed, knowing that they will probably never play a stadium concert? We wanted to tell that story – how hard it is to make music, to write even one song, to shoot another video to post online and hope someone leaves a nice comment.”
The game costs $20. With each episode, OFK and Sony Music Masterworks release a new single. A vinyl pack of the singles is available from iam8bit for $32. A limited edition physical version of We are OFK is available for pre-order also for PS5 and Switch. You can also pre-save the group’s first EP.
