We were doing our usual scrolling through Instagram (Millenials eh?) when we came across a new post from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, nothing unusual there. But wait, this post was directing us to marsfortherich.com and to their brand new computer game.
The post comes just a week away from their new heavy-edged album Infest The Rats Nest and sees the Melbourne-based band up the ante when it comes to album promo.
The game itself is a first-person shoot-em-up and plays like the classic version of DOOM, all grain and gore, and it has us feeling all nostalgic. The game is backed by King Gizz music and makes the whole experience well worth your time.
So, stop what you’re doing, put down the pen, stop scrolling through Instagram (jeez) and go and blame this little slice of retro-modernism.
