The Dwarves, King Art’s stumpy RPG based on the novel by Markus Heitz, is getting a heavy dose of heavy metal courtesy of Blind Guardian. This is great news if, like me, you have an abiding love for the German metal band.
Blind Guardian made an entire concept album dedicated to Tolkien’s Silmarillion, so I think they’ve got this covered.
The band will be working their magic on the soundtrack, and they’ll also pop up as part of a quest in the game to boot. Maybe a quest for a magical lute that makes heads explode? That’s something I could get behind.
Blind Guardian have been involved in gaming before. Back in 2008, their music was featured in Sacred 2, and they even starred in an in-game concert.
The Dwarves has two weeks left to raise $260,000 on Kickstarter, and is already at $205,000.
