Do you want to be a Rock Star? Then
this new game from the makers of Kudos and Democracy is just for
you... The game is part RPG, part life-sim, part Tycoon game. You
are a struggling rock singer who puts together their own band, and
tries to achieve fame and fortune, from humble beginnings as a
starving garage-band. Pick your band-members, choose the band
name, write the songs...play the gigs...
Rock Legend is a turn-based game, in some ways similar to
the gameplay of Kudos. Each turn of the game represents a single
day, and it's up to you to decide how the band spends their time.
Some of the activities you will need to spend time on include
songwriting, rehearsals, auditions, publicity events, practicing
individual instruments, and of course, recording your latest
The game has sophisticated AI that controls your band members (you
are the singer, they are your backing band) and decides how
motivated, energetic and happy they are. If you work the band too
hard, arrange poorly-attended gigs, and don't provide your band
with the lifestyle they expect, you will have resignations on your
hands. Running a successful band is part financial management,
part people-management, and part creative struggle. Do you have
what you need to survive in the music business?
