Video of the Day: David Bowie talks about his work on video games and working online



Earlier today, I posted a tribute to the legendary David Bowie who passed away last night at the age of 69. It might seem out of place to write about a man on a gaming website who’s predominantly known as a singer/songwriter, but as I pointed out in my article, David Bowie had a major influence on everything from TV, film, fashion, music and even video games. In 2000 the visionary artist crossed paths with another visionary talent, French musician, writer and video game designer, David Cage. Together they helped create an adventure game developed by Quantic Dream called Omikron: The Nomad Soul. Bowie, who had some input on the storyline and game’s design, makes two cameo appearances within the game performing music that he wrote which he later re-released on his album ‘Hours…’. Around the time of the game’s release, the legendary singer spoke about his experience working with Cage and shared his overall views of the medium. He even talks about how his son, Duncan Jones (film director of Moon and the upcoming Warcraft movie) got him into Tomb Raider. Watch the video below and be sure to check out my article, The Many Faces of David Bowie In Video Games. Enjoy!
