Jake Kaufman and Jessie Seeley both have extensive production credits on games ranging from Shovel Knight to Silent Hill: Book of Memories, from Duck Tales Remastered to Saints Row 3.

Morrissey will perform four shows at the Sydney Opera House as the famously gloomy British singer headlines a festival of light. Morrissey will sing on May 26-27 and May 30-31 at the iconic waterfront venue as part of Vivid Sydney, an annual showcase of arts and ideas marked by elaborate light projections. Ben Marshall, the curator for the music portion of the festival, described Morrissey as a "uniquely gifted and inimitably stylish" artist. "These four vital, intimate concerts will be a very special occasion for all those like-minded souls who've been affected by Morrissey," he said.
