With the “Linkin Park 8 Bit Rebellion”game coming out soon for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, I thought we’d feature a few of the characters. I designed each of these guys; here’s an introduction.
Long ago, the world existed in 8 bit harmony…until PixxelKorp arrived. Now, you are the rebellion’s only hope to fight the evil corporation’s mass-brainwashing campaign.
PIXIE is PixxelKorp’s mascot. He’s soft and cuddly, and the kiddies love him. After all, he’s selling a highly addictive product. And if you mess with him, he will eat your brains.
More to come…

My bandmates and I are thrilled to announce our game, “Linkin Park 8 Bit Rebellion,” will finally be out late this month for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. In the game, you’ll battle enemies and solve mysteries in order to stop an evil corporation’s mass-brainwashing campaign. Here’s some other stuff you’ll find:
– an 8 Bit version of each member of Linkin Park
– new 8 Bit versions of some of our most popular songs
– characters and art designed by the band
– a brand new Linkin Park song, entitled “Blackbirds,” waiting for you at the end.
Besides being being the first game to contain a new, exclusive LP track, this game is a “first” in other ways: it’s the first massively multiplayer music artist app, our first game, and will be in the first wave of games designed for the iPad.
Look out for it later in the month, and feel free to tell some friends.

We recently updated the store with a few new items for the holidays. Check out these tees, and the (discounted) book package. There’s other cool stuff in the store: http://bandmerch.seenon.com/index.php?v=mikeshinoda. As usual, proceeds go to Music For Relief and the Michael K. Shinoda endowed scholarship at Art Center College Of Design (benefitting students based on financial need and body of work).

For all my aspiring musicians (and probably even non-musicians out there), check this out…such an awesome idea. The video above is old, but I just saw the beta site today (link below), and it’s pretty advanced. I’m not sure about the performance of “Africa” by Toto (LOL)…but BOJAM is “server-side” recording and mixing software: you don’t have to download anything on your computer to use it (except Flash, which we all have anyway). Even if you know nothing about making music, you can create or remix a song with other users from around the world. In theory, you could even have a band with four musicians who have never met in person–they just wrote a hit song together from four different places around the world.
Apparently, they’re still testing out the software, so they’re looking for new users to try it out and tell them how to make it better. To try it, go here, fill in the info, and you’ll be ready to play with the software. Trust me, it’s worth it.

As announced earlier this year (http://www.businesswire.com/portal/site/home/permalink/?ndmViewId=news_view&newsId=20090421005647&newsLang=en), we’re putting together a video game for the iPhone and iPod touch. So far, it has been a lot of fun…although we don’t have a release date to announce yet, I thought I’d share a few of my concept drawings with you guys. I know it’s a terrible picture, ha!
This is the first time since the announcement that we’ve really talked about or mentioned anything about the game. We ‘re still working on it, but here’s what we want it to be: 1) Unique, 2) Fun.
We’ve been brainstorming ways to make story, combat, puzzles, music-based challenges, and RPG elements all fit within a community in the game. There are also some really funny things going on in the game that I know a lot of LP fans will recognize. Stay tuned for more info…

From the release:
Mike’s art, renditions of his latest work, is found on the upper, the insole, and the outsole; his signature is on the heel; and “limited edition” is embroidered in Japanese on the tongue.
Very limited quantities are available for this release, so they are expected to go fast. By purchasing here, proceeds go toward the Michael K. Shinoda Endowed Scholarship at Art Center College of Design, benefiting students based on financial need and artistic merit. For a limited, time (while supplies last), get 20% off Mike Shinoda art pieces when you buy the new 2009 Xander shoe.
That means 20% off the GICLEE PRINTS AND BOOKS as well (very good deal)…and sorry the shoe doesn’t fit all of you…that’s how it goes with limited editions.

As some of you may have heard, my bandmates and I are proud to announce that will be releasing some games for the iPhone and iPod touch. We will be making the games with Artificial Life, and hope to have the first game out later this year, although it’s still in the design phases.
As I have definitive info about gameplay and release, you’ll be the first to know!
