METAVERSE event to launch Philly-created video game
Co-creator Coolaidhippy got into music from watching tv shows, more specifically cartoons. “A heavy inspiration of the game comes from my music,” Cooly said. Coolaidhippy and Tethra64 started out in music individually before linking up in 2017. The two discovered their unique sound and hit the ground running. Together they create a variety of music like Hip-Hop, Blast, Trap and more.
“X2: The Next Power” is inspired by the experiences Teth and Cooly have had in the music industry. Teth, co-creator of the game, said “Games have been a huge influence in me and Cooly’s life.”
Making a video game is a big accomplishment for Cooly. He would like to open up a new community through what they do in Philadelphia. “Hopefully this gives everyone the courage to be like we can make a video game being from Philly and just being ourselves,” said Cooly.
In the game both their characters Tesura and Coolimeshi fight against the antagonist, Callab Corp, who represents the music industry. The Antagonist comes and steals the X2 Gems to use it for its own good. Tesura and Coolimeshi must fight to get the X2 Gems back before Callab Corp takes over the industry and the world.
