KORN Frontman Developing Video Game

KORN frontman Jonathan Davis is developing a video game called "Pop Scars", according to MTV.com.

"It's basically a celebrity fighting game, but in the context of a 'Soul Calibur' or 'Mortal Kombat', where it's a real fighting game and it's not just a cheap fighting engine, just for the hell of it because it's celebrity fighting," Davis said. "It's going to be this real killer fighting [game] with these incredible different worlds where you can go."

Along with KORN and LIMP BIZKIT, the game is slated to feature some of Davis' other musician friends, like STAIND and MARILYN MANSON.

"It's not going to be just rock people, though," Davis said. "It's going to be everybody. Mary J. Blige and some more on the pop side that I've got to go after, just a well-rounded roster, so it'll be cool."

Davis said he has been involved in every part of developing the game, including choosing the designs. He is currently meeting with different game makers to find a home for the product.

"I'm really excited about it because we spend most of our time gaming," Davis said. "It's music and games, that's my escape. I love it."
