AltarBound Studios Presents: "Elton John and the Cream Puff of Doom!"(WARNING: This game is slightly adult, mentioning sex, vulgar words, homosexuality, drug use, red dye no. 5 and Mick Jagger.)
You're not Elton John. No one is--except, maybe, Elton John--but here's your chance to try and tell him what to do. Presented with a quest, Elton would rather shop, eat, drink, sleep, go clubbing and engage in some recreational substances.
Set in 1974, Elton leaves a performance, on his way to the pub, when he is confronted by a Familiar Yet Strange Man. This man rants and raves and is hardly interesting until he tells Elton he must go on a quest--to find the Oracle of Rock and Roll, which will surely make him the most famous musician of his time. Dismissing it--as most would--as a load of grade A hooey, Elton ignores it until he finds out that Elvis himself went on this quest. And then he pretends not to be interested.
The full length game will feature puzzles, hilarious animations and even (hopefully) a pinball machine.Progress (demo):
