Rock 'n' Roll Will Never Die!
« on: 23 Feb 2021, 16:38 »

The Story:

The game tells the story of a middle-aged teddy bear planning a comeback with his old glam rock band – in a world where glam rock has been dead and buried for decades. Experience all the fun of organizing band activities with people who have families and careers, rehearsing in moldy basements, trying to convince promoters to book your band and playing Tuesday night support gigs at empty bars for no money!

Development details:

It's a full-length game with 100+ characters and 60+ rooms with 1920 x 1080 pixel graphics. I've been working on it solo for over two years now, but it's finally starting to feel like it might actually be finished one day. At the moment I'm still working on missing graphics, which mostly means cutscenes and close-ups, but backgrounds and character animations are mostly done. Scripting is "done", but there are still a lot of bugs to fix...

- story 100%
- puzzles 100%
- graphics 80%
- scripting 90%
- music/sound 70% (?)

Expected completion date: Hopefully late 2021

Love the style. It reminds me of the underground comics scene. Will there be some band music tracks for the gigs?

I had ambitious plans for recording an original soundtrack for the game with a proper rock band, but the COVID year has kind of delayed all the plans of rehearsing and recording with other people. But I hope I can still make it happen!

That might happen, I usually end up drawing bears even when I'm trying not to. For the first couple of weeks this was going to be a more serious game with human characters, but as soon as I started drawing anything it turned into slapstick comedy with cute animals.

But bears are cool, so it was probably for the best.  8-)

Nice!

Huh, I haven't heard that album, but should probably check it out. At least the song titles seem interesting enough!
