A HOLMFIRTH band have won a new following of fans, thanks to computer games.
Old Man Pie have their music feature in a game on Channel 4 website 4mations.tv.
The game, Mr Mucky Guitar Legend, involves gamers playing along online to Old Man Pie’s music, hitting arrow keys in time to the song.
Old Man Pie have used animations and games to promote their music on the web for some time – but this play-along game has resulted in more than 23,000 downloads of their MP3s worldwide.
The game has been such a success that Channel 4 has commissioned Old Man Pie to do the music for another online game called The Pest Controller.
Players will have to kill zombies, cockroaches, spiders and mice as part of the game.
