Dream Theater: The Astonishing Game
The first ever Dream Theater game is coming your way.
Prepare to step into the dystopian future as described in the concept album The Astonishing. Travel to The Great Northern Empire Of The Americas (G.N.E.A.) where any dedication, investment or interest in the arts has all but been abandoned. The very soul of what was once real music is lost in a digital quagmire of emotionless sonic madness.
In this setting a young man from the Endless Isleland, Gabriel, emerges with a voice so profound it moves everyone that listens, transporting them back to a time where true art created by humans was celebrated and consumed as the ultimate nourishment for the soul.
In the game you will follow the story-line of the album through a series of matches between the rebel militia and the forces of G.N.E.A. in a board-based tactical strategy game! The game is available soon on iOS & Android (both mobile and tablets), as well as for PC and MAC.

Dream Theater has seen three decades of continually redefining the parameters of hard rock and progressive heavy metal, overcoming obstacles, surpassing critical expectations, and resisting the incessant winds of industry uncertainty. Staying an exciting course in a sea littered with also-rans, pretenders, and opportunists, Dream Theater’s body of work endures with singular triumph.
The Astonishing is undisputedly the most ambitious undertaking by a band whose cerebral compositions already define the vanguard of progressive hard rock. “This is the next natural step in our evolution,” declares longtime frontman James LaBrie. “This is a pinnacle moment for us. This is something we had to do.”
With a string of successful album releases and a colossal international following, counting almost four million Facebook followers, Dream Theater also holds numerous awards for technical musical skills.
Now, prepare for their game!
