Radiohead’s Free Kid A Mnesia exhibit is coming to PlayStation 5 and PC next week


Famous rock band Radiohead has teamed up with Epic Games, the people behind Fortnite and the Unreal Engine, to announce Kid A Mnesia exhibition. A virtual art exhibition built from the group’s original art and music Child A and Amnesiac albums, Kid A Mnesia exhibition will be available on PlayStation 5, PC and Mac on November 18 as a completely free download.

From the trailer below, this thing fits the Radiohead vibe perfectly – i.e., it’s a little trippy, a little scary, hints at some serious paranoia about technology (there’s a Matrix lane straight down at one point), and generally looks like an art project of a few smart kids who have just discovered the latest, oh, 60 years of avant-garde art. With art from band vocalist Thom Yorke and resident artist Stanley Donwood, and sound design from producer Nigel Godrich, all working directly from the original Radiohead assets, you can be sure this interactive little thing will carry the touch. group personal. This is definitely not a George Thorogood app, I’m telling you what.

Yorke and Co. had to bring in experts from various disciplines to make this experience a reality. Kid A Mnesia exhibition was produced with the help of interactive producer Matthew Davis, creative director and computer artist Sean Evans, stage designer Christine Jones, Davis studio [namethemachine], and the game studio Indeed Good Productions, then distributed worldwide by Epic Games Publishing. The whole thing was originally meant to exist in the real world, as a traveling exhibit that would have commemorated the 20th anniversary of these two albums, but a certain pandemic has put the kibosh on these physical planes. Instead, we can all enjoy it from the comfort of our own playroom now. Thanks Radiohead!

Check out this trailer below, and get ready to download the whole thing when it releases on PlayStation 5, PC, and Mac in a week from today.
