Mighty Box Games comes a videogame inspired by Joy Division titled Will Love Tear Us Apart.
The game explores a relationship on the brink of a breakup. Responding to an eerie partner, the player is encouraged to reflect “on the darker side of love: miscommunication, emotional impasse and the sadness of separation.”
Videogame creator Gordon Calleja said he questioned how he would adapt the song into game form, but eventually ended up designing each verse as a different level. The player examines different evironments, until reaching the point of “com[ing] to terms with the reality of an irreconcilable relationship.”
