Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) has announced that he has scored the upcoming Industrial Toys sci-fi shooter video game Morning Light, which will be hitting iOS devices Spring 2013. Tankian has also scored portions of John Woo’s 2007 video game Stranglehold, which was the sequel to the action film Hard Boiled (one of the greatest action films ever released).

Tankian comments, “I’m really enjoying working on Morning Star because it gives me the ability to create new musical worlds to complement the new visual worlds in the game. Though most of the gameplay will be action oriented cues, the stunning artwork and static scenes have inspired unique sounds unheard before.

Industrial Toys CEO Alex Seropian adds, “We’ve been big fans of Serj’s for quite some time. The opportunity to collaborate with him on Morning Star gave us a way to take the game to a whole new level. We knew his score would be unique, but it’s his ability to interpret a scene or gameplay element and come up with something that makes it moodier, more dramatic or just more awesome that’s really got us pumped.

Set 120 years into our future, Morning Star takes players aboard the MSRV-Joplin, a research vessel newly outfitted with military weaponry to explore a mysterious signal coming from within our Solar System. When inevitable disaster strikes, Tankian’s accompanying musical score provides the thrilling musical backdrop as players are transported across the cosmos to engage in an epic battle for the ages. The looming threat that awaits is unlike anything humanity has ever seen before.
