KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION is a FREE game for PC and PlayStation 5 celebrating Radiohead

From Press Release:

Today marks the release of KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION, presented by Radiohead and Epic Games. It’s available now as a free download for PC and Mac via the Epic Games Store and PlayStation 5 via the PlayStation Store.

KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION is an upside-down digital/analogue universe created from original artwork by Thom Yorke and Stanley Donwood and sound design by Nigel Godrich to commemorate 21 years of Radiohead’s Kid A and Amnesiac albums.

“Working on something as strange as this over long Zoom calls with a large team of technicians around the world has been one of the strangest experiences we have ever had,” write Thom and Donwood in today’s guest post on the PlayStation Blog.

“What we have made is… it’s something like a mutant re-engineering of KID A and Amnesiac,” they added.

Additionally, Epic Games has announced that in celebration of the launch, Fortnite players can unlock free in-game items based on the experience, including a lobby track (“Untitled v1” from the band’s anniversary triple album release, KID A MNESIA) and a Loading Screen.
