Comments

During PlayStation's State of Play for October 2021, the company announced that the story-focused game We Are OFK is coming to PS4 and PS5.

Part narrative series, part interactive album, We Are OFK is an episodic title that follows the life of an indie pop band called OFK. The gameplay is primarily composed of picking dialogue options to interact with the characters, and the story focuses on the band members' attempts to make it in the music scene of Los Angeles. In addition to installments in the story, each episode will also feature another interactive music video for a song from the band.

The game comes from Team OFK, which is a combination band and game developer. According to an interview with the developer on PlayStation Blog, the game is based on the band's actual struggles and triumphs in getting started.

"In a lot of game stories, the villain is a dragon, a sword man, an evil corporation," manager and keyboardist Itsumi Saito said in the post. "That's not our kind of story. In We Are OFK, the villain is the struggles you face trying to create something: imposter syndrome, heartbreak, miscommunication, people with different dreams and priorities. It's really hard to make music, games, art, videos, novels, whatever! That's the story we want to tell. Our story, of how our band got together in Los Angeles and how, so far, we haven't screwed it up."

We Are OFK will be composed of five parts with five interactive music videos, and it's slated for launch in 2022. In addition to PS4 and PS5, the game will also come to PC.
