Particle’s Steve Molitz and Shaq Team Up For New Video Game
Four-time NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal announced yesterday that he’s launching an Indiegogo campaign to involve fans in the creation of a new video game he’s making titled Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn. The game developers say, “Shaq Fu” will be in the spirit of “Streets of Rage,” and will feature melee weapons and hordes of enemies.
Shaq and New Jersey-based game studio Big Deez tapped Particle’s Steve Molitz to write the original score and remix songs from Shaq’s platinum-selling catalog, including the single “Can’t Stop The Reign” feat. Notorious BIG.
Molitz recently scored the game R.I.P.D. (based on the Universal film), as well as the short film “Set Up, Punch” which debuted at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and starred Elijah Wood.
As well as an advance copy of the game and a download of Molitz’s soundtrack, the Indiegogo campaign (which ends on 4/20) also offers a variety of rewards including the opportunity to play basketball with Shaq at his house, getting to voice characters and sound effects for the game, and private keyboard/music production lessons with Molitz.
