With scenes that take us directly to the beginning of the 2000’s.
Every person from the 80’s, 90’s, or even the 2000’s rocked with the mythical video of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Californication. Such was the band’s popularity that in 2010 there were rumors of the arrival of a Guitar Hero dedicated to the band, that if it wasn’t for the decline in popularity of the genre, it would have been a reality.
What has become a reality is the video of Californication, or rather, the video game where we can see the four members of the band go through different scenarios that can remind us of many other games of the time. Both Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the directors behind the video, did it as a tribute to many video games of the time like Crazy Taxi, with the twist of inserting the unique style of the band.
All the essence of the videoclip in a fan-made game.
Since this videoclip was released, many of us have imagined what it would be like to play something similar while listening to the song, something that Miquel Camps Orteza, a Spanish fan of the band, wanted to solve. This aspiring video game developer is not the first big project he has shared, but it is one of the ones that has taken him the most work to give the same essence of the video.
He has captured the essence of the videoclip and has transferred it to a game for PC and Mac developed with the Unity engine that can be downloaded for free through this link. With the great work Miguel has done, we hope to hear from him in the future thanks to his participation in more ambitious projects. You can check out this amazing project by clicking here.
