Red Hot Chili Peppers’ 1999 song Californication is now a free video game

It’s been over 20 years since the Red Hot Chili Peppers released their 1999 album. Californication was first released, and thanks to the work of developer Miquel Camps Orteza, its title track was turned into a video game. Finally!

In 2000, the album’s title track was released as a single and came with a music video full of jerky animated 3D scenes that are reminiscent of an old PlayStation game. Californication (video game) recreates the spirit of these scenes, except now you can play them as if the song were a video game.

Original Music Video is a delusional fever dream in which a shirtless character faces bears and chainsaw-wielding maniacs, runs through the woods, drives a mining vehicle through a mine shaft, and snowboards down the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge pipeline. The trailer for the game is very similar to the original video and shows the gameplay of the characters hovering over the city sky, running from giant boulders, and swimming across the ocean.

According to Orteza, the game began as a two-day challenge before evolving into a full game with seven levels, each with its own setting and game mechanics. Those who want to relive the glory days of the Red Hot Chili Peppers can download the game for free on Itch.io right now. For Windows PC and macOS.
