Tetris Effect and Interstellar

  1. Have you also noticed certain similarities between Tetris Effect and Interstellar by C. Nolan?
     




  2. The title screen music of Tetris Effect resembles the Interstellar main theme. Doesn't it seem to you too?
     
  3. Look at these images:

    This is the heart of the film: the gravitational anomaly.
    Gravity is used in the film to communicate between distant
    places and times. The image of gravitational strips
    Is present throughout the film.

    And now look at the credits and tell me if you think
    it's just a case.

     
  4. In the movie the protagonist Cooper enters a wormhole positioned
    near Saturn to reach remote planets in the universe. A wormhole
    is normally represented like this:

    Now look at the "Journey mode" screen. It is clear what it is: WORMHOLES!

  5. Let's compare the most important message of the movie and the game. The main theme of both is gravity and love. These are the words of dr. Brand (Ann Hathaway) in Interstellar:


    Cooper : You're a scientist, Brand.
    Brand : So listen to me when I say that love isn't something that we invented. It's... observable, powerful. It has to mean something.
    Cooper : Love has meaning, yes. Social utility, social bonding, child rearing...
    Brand : We love people who have died. Where's the social utility in that?
    Cooper : None.
    Brand : Maybe it means something more - something we can't yet understand. Maybe it's some evidence, some artefact of a higher dimension that we can't consciously perceive. I'm drawn across the universe to someone I haven't seen in a decade, who I know is probably dead. Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving that trascends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can't understand it. All right Cooper. Yes. The tiniest possibility of seeing Wolf again excites me. That doesn't mean I'm wrong.
    Cooper : Honestly, Amelia... it might




    And now the words of the main song of Tetris Effect:



    The Deep: Connected (Yours Forever)

    [Intro]
    When you were born
    Something changed
    My heart could not contain (The world was rearranged)
    The miracle
    Of this world
    And all that it creates
    [Verse]
    With every passing day
    The winds might blow stronger
    And carry us away
    But we will hold on to
    Joy to light the way
    To keep the reminder
    That love does not escape
    [Chorus]
    I'm yours forever
    There is no end in sight for us
    Nothing could measure
    The kind of strength inside our hearts
    It's all connected
    We're all together in this life
    Don't you forget it
    We're all connected in this life
    We're all connected in this life
    We're all connected in this, love
    [Outro]
    Beyond the stones and the seas
    The sun and the breeze
    The stars and the galaxy
    Beyond the time that we take
    The days that we make
    I'm always gonna to be with you.

    THE MESSAGE IS THE SAME! Do you think it's just another coincidence? Not me. In my opinion, the game was inspired by the film in a very subtle and never declared way. These are two extraordinary cultural products that show a common matrix: gravity and love, matter and spirit. Overcoming the gravity of matter (Gargantua or 20G) to free the human being.

    I love crazy this game and this movie :)
     
  6. I do not think the message is supposed to be the same or even vaguely similar. Not beyond that both things have something to do with the human mind.
     
  7. Dr. Brand:
    "Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving that trascends dimensions of time and space."

    Hydelics song:
    "Beyond the stones and the seas
    The sun and the breeze
    The stars and the galaxy
    Beyond the time that we take
    The days that we make
    I'm always gonna to be with you."


    Objectively the message is the same. This is undeniable.
     
  8. "Objectively" its two different sentences. This is undeniable.
     
  9. I don't think I am forcing the interpretation of the text if I say that the two quoted sentences (central elements in the two works) have an overlapping meaning: love wins over space and time. It seems very clear to me and this is just one of the many points of contact between the game and the Interstellar movie.

    Another point of contact that deserves attention is the poem of Dylan Thomas "Do not go gentle in that good night" mentioned several times in the film Interstellar and the lyrics of the song World of colors.



    World of colours (Mermaid cove)

    "We are the light of hope
    We're shining like no other
    Like diamonds in the rough
    We found our world of colour
    Now we're never going to give it up
    We're never going to give it up no
    We're never going to give it up
    We love our world of colour
    We are the light of hope
    Like diamonds in the rough"

    It almost seems like an answer to Professor Brand (M. Caine) of Interstellar.
