Deadmau5 Video Game Currently Being Developed (VIDEO)

It’s not uncommon for established artists to switch up mediums from time to time. Sculptors hit the canvas with some paint, photographers take up drawing, actors put out music albums, and so on. That being said, a Deadmau5 video game is currently being worked on by the popular musician, but it is super early in development.

Joel Zimmerman, otherwise known as Deadmau5, recently took to Twitter to share a Twitch clip of him playing the new game. He advises fans to give the team at least a year before anything substantial comes of it, and that we should “consider it a pet project” at this time. Check it out below:

As can be seen in the tweet above, the Deadmau5 video game is in its “mad early “alpha alpha” testing” phase. The musician then took to Reddit to dive a bit deeper into the details about the project. This is where he revealed the engine that is being used, what the team’s plans are moving forward, and more. You can see what he said below:

“We’re in the prototyping phase…. some quick answers to you fellas: Yes these are assets, I’m aware. This prototype was slapped together in a matter of two days. Also have a team of talented dev’s who REALLY know their shit with UE, this isn’t a solo project. This is MAD early, i just thought i’d share our progress this far…

At present, we’re just setting up some basic mechanics, getting a space together where we can jam out in an arena of sorts and spitball ideas… once we’ve agreed on that and nailed in network code and sever delegation, we head down the “fun and original secondary objective” route. Once that all gets dialed in, we head into art department and clean her up and carry on improving the functionality and playability.

It’s a long and arduous process… but I’m passionate about it, and looking forward to sharing more with you!”

With it being this early in development, there’s no telling if or when the Deadmau5 video game is set to be released, but the team seems to be chugging along on the concept. Especially if the video above is only from two days of work. Only time will tell what comes of this.
