Spotify’s latest expansion is certain unexpected: it’s getting into the basketball game. Well, it’s *made* a basketball game, for British artist AJ Tracey.
Flu Game: The Game is a promotional campaign for Tracey’s new album ‘Flu Game’, which itself is a basketball reference (to a famous match where Michael Jordan played with the flu and still helped his team win).
Spotify’s game will get fans shooting virtual hoops over 16 levels, with various characters (and a jumping pizza) trying to get in the way. Tracey pops up with encouragement, and players can listen to the album’s official playlist while it’s running.
