Anamanaguchi leaks its own game after strained developer relations


Strap in

This is a weird one. Over the past three years, musical group Anamanaguchi (past credits include Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Bit.Trip Runner) has been involved in making the game Capsule Silence XXIV in that it was creating the soundtrack and also had a hands-on role in development. Today, the band leaked the game to the public.

Anamanaguchi is seemingly fed up with developer NHX's role in the project. Media relations people are telling the band to act professionally, and Anamanaguchi wants none of it. For a better idea (yet still tough to discern) of what's going on, take a look at the group's Twitter page.

Here are some choice picks:

This tweet-storm culminated with the band uploading Capsule Silence XXIV to MediaFire.

According to a recent story on GameSpot that announces the game, Capsule Silence XXIV is about an orphan who's trying to uncover the truth about his past, and he's also tasked with saving the members of Anamanaguchi. It's said to be a first-person shooter with role-playing game elements.

Capsule Silence XXIV was set to come out later this year on PC, with console versions also in the works. It seems as if Anamanaguchi and NHX have a relationship so strained that any further work on this title might come to a halt. And, it'd be surprising if these actions don't result in some sort of legal action. This will be an interesting one to keep tabs on.
