Mars Volta Launch Online Game to Coincide with New Album

Srsly?

Yeah, srsly.

Hey Sam! You’re the resident video game expert. You should play it and let us know if it’s any good.

Also, just for shits and giggles (Christ, I hate that phrase…), here’s a link to the Emo Game. (It’s not safe for work since Steven Tyler is raping a member of the Get Up Kids within the first three minutes).

This game sucks--it's a point-and-click puzzle game like Myst, except it only has two rooms and they look butt-ugly. Worse, there's a damned misuse of "it's." Even worse than that, when I try to cheat by hitting the Tab key to highlight hidden objects, the stupid game just starts playing Mars Volta songs instead. So now I'm trapped in a room with a Jesus figurine, a prayer card, and a rope with a hook on its end, and I can't figure out where I'm supposed to go. Awesome. Makes me really want to buy your next overwrought album, guys.

The game finally let me out of this stupid room. Still sucks, though.

Flash-based trinkets don't really count as video games. And this one is even lamer than most of them.

OK, now back to Crysis...

So Line Out readers will feel right at home.
