We found out about it at the 2020 edition of The Game Awards We are OFK, a new project by Hyperlight drifter Co-designer Teddy Dief and her collaborators at Team OFK. It was supposed to debut in Spring 2021, but as usual in recent years, it was delayed. Now, We are OFK finally has a release date. Or, more precisely, let go Events, as it is an episodic series. The first two episodes will be released on August 18th for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PS5, Steam and the Epic Games Store. The remaining three episodes will appear weekly.
We are OFK follows a virtual four piece indie band called OFK. It’s billed as an interactive musical biopic that makes OFK about its own origins. As Dief wrote on the PlayStation Blog, “What would it look like to create virtual musicians who perform performances by [pop stars] on their laptops in bed knowing they’ll probably never play a stadium concert? We wanted to tell that story – how hard it is to make music, to write even one song, to record another video to put online and hope someone leaves a nice comment.”
The game costs $20. Along with each episode, OFK and Sony Music Masterworks release a new single. A vinyl pack of the singles will be available from iam8bit for $32. A limited physical version of We are OFK can also be pre-ordered for PS5 and Switch. You can also pre-save the first EP of the group.
