ROCK OUT WITH HALFBRICK’S NEW GAME BAND STARS
Today Halfbrick is proud to announce that its collaborative project with fellow Aussie developer Six Foot Kid has launched worldwide on the App Store! Band Stars is for music and management lovers around the world, giving players the chance to recruit rockers, record hit songs and grow a legion of fans!
In development for the past 12 months, Band Stars has evolved to become a colorful celebration of all things musical, with a rich layer of depth to satisfy strategy and simulation fans. Players jump in by choosing their band members from a small initial group, and hit the studio indie-style.
Each rocker has unique stats and abilities, so this will come into play when choosing the style and genre of music to record. Choosing the right band members to play each instrument, who should lay down a solo, and especially who will mix the final track are all very important choices which affects the overall song quality. However, there are no penalties for experimentation, and exploring the nuances of studio management will reap rich rewards.
As each song continues to climb higher in the charts, the fans will begin to gather and new expansion opportunities arise. Up to 50 characters can be unlocked, new gear and instruments can be obtained for the studio, and the cash will begin to flow. Making the most of every opportunity will shoot even the quirkiest band into international stardom!
This is Halfbrick’s first foray into the simulation genre, although the team was very conscious to keep its trademark casual, accessible gameplay intact. Band Stars is rich, colourful and family-friendly, so fans of any music style will find something to enjoy.
Band Stars is available exclusively as a universal download on the App Store. It is a free download worldwide.
