Baltimore, MD (July 28, 2010) – Bassist kanon, one of the founders of the visual kei band An Cafe and currently a video game producer, will demo his mobile phone game Pinky Distortion at Otakon. The demo will take place at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 31 in the Game Room.
At his panel on Friday (4:30-6 p.m. in Panel 2), he will select 20 people to play the game. Anyone is welcome to come to the demo and watch.
The recently released mobile phone game Pinky Distortion features DIS;CODE, a visual kei band in search of a vocalist. The player takes the role of a young singer recruited as the band’s manager, who must find a way to keep the band together and lead them to their first successful live concert.
The game emphasizes kanon’s belief that a group of passionate people can create something more amazing than any individual. With a signature flamboyant style and Fender Jazz bass, kanon attracted a sizable fan base around the world as part of An Cafe. After a successful world tour and a big final show at Nippon Budokan in January, An Cafe went on hiaitus.
In addition to the gaming demo, kanon will also be a guest DJ at the Otakurave on Friday night in the 10p.m. hour.
Otakon 2010 will be held July 30 – August 1 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
