Karmaflow - the whole story
Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame is part of the multidisciplinary project Karmaflow. The aim of the project is to unite music, games and theater in a unique way, experimenting with sung interactive narrative.

Karmaflow was initiated by composer Ivo van Dijk in 2012 and started out as a graduation project for him and 12 fellow students of the School of Arts Utrecht. The team strives to bring a new and unique way of telling interactive stories through the medium of videogames, and is taking it one step further by bringing the music of Karmaflow to the stage.

Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame is a full-blown interactive rock opera. It tells the story of the Karmakeeper who is burdened with the task of restoring the balance in several worlds. Each world is protected by a Guardian in heavy conflict with their counterpart. Find them, hear them out and decide what they are: friend or foe. Play as the Karmakeeper, and actively decide the way the rock opera and its story progresses. Puzzle and explore your way through five different worlds. Change the environment, change the music...

Karmaflow in Concert
Karmaflow in Concert is a specially formed band that will perform the music of Karmaflow live on stage. Together with a string-quartet and an alternating cast of guest-singers (from the original cast which can be found in the game) the band will be performing on club-stages in 2015.
