Now You Can Play Joy Division: The Video Game

Unsurprisingly, it’s a bit of a downer.

Independent games studio Mighty Box have designed a free browser game about “relationships on the verge of breaking-up”. The game is thematically and sonically influenced by Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’.

Titled Will Love Tear Us Apart, each verse of the song represents a level in the game.


The developers say: “What guides this game is an ambition to frustrate, upset and sting the player into remembering the dark days preceding the death of a relationship.”

View the trailer for the game below, or visit Will Love Tear Us Apart to start playing.
