The game, which appeared in the music video of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Californication” song released 23 years ago, was brought to real life by a developer. The game was released for Windows and macOS.
Continuing to be listened to by millions of fans with its unique style, Red Hot Chili Peppers released their album Californication in 1999, which will make its name known to the whole world and will be listened to by millions today. The album, which went down in music history with tracks such as Otherside and Scar Tissue, also added to the fame of the band with the song of the same name Californication.
When Californication was first released, it featured a low standard, simple level animation video game. Reminiscent of old PlayStation games, the game in this video clip was released for the first time in 23 years, as it is actually playable today. The game, of course, has the same name as the album and track.
The parts in the video turned into reality:
The game was not officially released in partnership with Red Hot Chili Peppers. Indie developer Miquel Camps Orteza gave him a two-day challenge and decided to turn the resulting product into a full-scale game. That game was Californication, which consists of seven chapters, each with different mechanics and environments.
Miquel created each episode inspired by the moments he saw in the music video which was impressive to him. We run through the forest in one of the episodes, snowboard in the other, and drive in the other. Although it is a game far from today’s standards, those who want to have a little nostalgia and really want to experience the game in the clip can download the game on their Windows or macOS computers by clicking this link.
