Joy Division Video Game Is Unsettling And Depressing

June 09, 2013


"Will Love Tear Us Apart" is a free-to-play online game based on the Joy Division song "Love Will Tear Us Apart". The game is unsettling, depressing, and I only got as far as the part where you are having an argument with your lover that you can only advance from by escalating the argument.

The developers description of the game really lays it out:

Will Love Tear Us Apart? is a free-to-play browser-game about relationships on the brink of breaking up. It is inspired by Joy Division’s Love Will Tear Us Apart and follows the song in delivering a dark and frustrating perspective on love. Each verse in the song is represented by a level in the game.

WLTUA encourages players to reflect on the darker side of love: miscommunication, emotional impasse and the sadness of separation. Solace may be found in the brief moment of lightness that comes over us when we come to terms with the reality of an irreconcilable relationship.

So, if you're in the mood for a video game AND a good cry, head over to willlovetearusapart.com. Headphones and a stiff drink are recommended.
