Valiant Hearts Director Announces New Game Lost in Harmony

by on September 17, 2015

Yoan Fanise, the director of Ubiarts title Valiant Hearts has revealed his new studio’s project Lost in Harmony.

With his new studio Digixart they’ll be bring the story of skater boy Kaito and his friend Aya to life.

It’ll be a rhythm action title that will see Kaito skating towards the screen while carrying Aya on his back. The player will be required to follow the movements on screen to successfully guide Kaito on his adventure.

The soundtrack will see a host of videogame composers alongside the two time Grammy award winning Wyclef Jean provide music to help bring the story to life.

Fanise’s desire with Lost in Harmony is to try and bring a touching narrative experience to the rhythm action genre of videogames:

The idea of Lost in Harmony came from my past experience of blending music into storytelling. Magic happens when you see how, without any word, without any language form, you can provoke feelings into a multicultural audience by playing the right melody.

I was frustrated not to find a musical game that brought this level of emotion, with characters you care about, with a story you want to follow, it was more or less always about rhythmic tapping, about squares and circles. By marrying my storytelling experience and the talent of world class composers, there is a chance that this game will touch people’s hearts.

It seems that Wyclef is very keen on the project also, as he brings an original song to the title:

To bring  music to Kaito’s fantasy world was thrilling. I wanted to write music that captured a moment in his journey that was both mystical and brave, and that could emotionally inspire the multi-national world that is video gaming and that Kaito lives in.  And how cool to do music for a game that uses music to communicate!
