When I hear about a game entitled The Mortal Instruments, I naturally imagine a game about a saxophone and a piano with only six months to live, and they need to put on one last amazing concert before it’s their time. Then I find out that The Mortal Instruments is actually a book series and an upcoming movie about vampires, demons, and the well-meaning folks who battle them to keep us safe. I guess I just thought since it’s PlayFirst (a TriplePoint client) who’s making the official game, it would be about playing instruments first. Well, an action game about being a Shadowhunter still sounds cool, but that idea about the piano’s quest, you guys — feel free to use that.
From the press release:
Players will take on the role of a Shadowhunter, a half-angel, half–human warrior, and defeat vampires, warlocks and other demons to save New York City from their malevolent clutches. Featuring locations, characters and magical abilities from the film,The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones mobile game is the perfect way for fans to get excited about the upcoming movie release while introducing new fans through the game.
The Mortal Instruments are coming to iOS and Android in a week. We’ll check back then to see if there’s any awesome music.
