Here we are, a site that regularly follows unusual gaming – music crossovers, and I don’t think we could ever have imagined anything this odd: a video game in which you play as Frédéric Chopin (yes, the one you’re thinking of), fighting disease with magical powers in a dream world:

Chopin’s Dream Screens at Kotaku

Bungie, of course, is the developer and — ha, just kidding. No, this one is from Japan. (Pretend to be surprised.) Trusty Bell: Chopin no Yume is the official name (trusty bell?!), and other than that, you can really only look at the images, awestruck.

I’m trying to think of something stranger, like a 3D badminton game with Beethoven or a first person shooter starring atonal music theorist Allen Forte, but it all rings hollow. The game itself looks like it could be interesting, though it’s hard to tell from the screen grabs. (Looks like a sort of anime-esque Myst-y exploration/adventure/puzzler?) Naturally, we’ll keep you posted.

Chopin, for his part, looks awfully cute.

  • I can't remember the last time I saw such a bizarre game plot. I imagine the first talk the game designer had with the producer… that must has been fun! 🙂
