Christian rock band Skillet launches new video game based on song "Save Me"

Christian rockers Skillet have announced the launch of a new video game based on their recent single, "Save Me". 

The multi-award-winning band — who have sold some 12 million records worldwide — debuted the arcade-like game on their website, which features each band member as a sort of pacman character. 

Rock magazine Loudiwre explains more about the game and its premise:

"Once a character is selected, the player runs through a maze where they attempt to avoid certain icons associated with the "Save Me" video. Stay away from John Cooper's "hand," try to avoid Jen Ledger's poison water bottle, flee from John's fire and keep an eye out for other obstacles all while gathering up dots and keys." 

Skillet's track "Save Me" has been viewed over 1.5 million times since its release on April 3:

The lyrics read as follows: 

This is the place that no one sees
I don't like to show (I can't help it)
This is the darkness over me
It's just the world I know (I can't stand it)

Reachin' for the light
Reachin' from inside
Help me tonight

I'm closer to the edge tonight
I'm standin' on the ledge, so why
Hold you, reach out your hand
To save (To save), to save me tonight
I'm damaged if you dare tonight
It feels like no one cares, so why
Can I come up for air?
To save (To save), just save me tonight
What are you waitin' for?
Someone save me

Peel back the skin, exposed to you
Take pleasure in the pain (Please stop starin')
Tell me what I'm supposed to do
It ain't easy to open up this way (I can't help it)

Reachin' for the light
Reachin' from inside
Help me tonight

I'm closer to the edge tonight
I'm standing on the ledge, so why
Hold you, reach out your hand
To save (To save), to save me tonight
I'm damaged if you dare (Tonight)
It feels like no one cares, so why
Can I come up for air?
To save (To save), just save me
What are you waiting for?
Someone save me

Reachin' for the light
Reachin' from inside
Help me tonight

I'm closer to the edge tonight
I'm standin' on the ledge, so why
Hold you, reach out your hand
To save, to save me tonight
I'm damaged if you dare, tonight
It feels like no one cares, so why
Can I come up for air?
Just save (Just save), just save me tonight
I'm closer to the edge tonight
I'm standin' on the ledge, so why
Hold you, reach out your hand
To save (To save), to save me
What are you waitin' for?
Someone save me

Speaking at Q & A session on the release of "Save Me," Skillet said that the track was "about the darker side of you that you are afraid to show people."

They added: "It’s about getting honest and asking for help, both spiritually and naturally speaking. We wanted to release a fun game that reminds fans we all have fears to overcome, but can come out victorious on the other side. We hope it gives fans a fun break during their quarantine!”
