Rock 'n' Roll Will Never Die! – Demo out now
« 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 hand-drawn 1920 x 1080 pixel graphics. I've been working on it solo for almost three years now, but it's finally starting to feel like it might actually be finished one day. A couple of months of heavy testing and fixing smaller details here and there will hopefully do the trick.

- story 100%
- puzzles 100%
- graphics 95%
- scripting 95%
- music/sound 95%

Expected completion date: 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!

The graphics still need some fine-tuning and there are bugs to be fixed, but it's getting there.
Some progress pics might also appear on Instagram every now and then:

My entire family has been affected by the quarantine. We couldn't go on vacation, my wife got fired from her job, and I'm trying to make money playing in a band in bars. I'm tired, so I spend time reading - get more info at https://studymoose.com/civil-rights-movemen about various literature. I really hope to get through this quarantine as soon as possible and finally start living. Books help me to distract myself at least a little, but I also have to think about my family and their state of mind, so I really want to take them to rest.

I played the demo and can recommend it! Very funny and recognizable so far. The distant sound of rock while in the bathroom is JUST right!  (nod)

Graphics and music are excellent, the font gives personality, and the NPCs are splendid. I look forward to the full game!  ;-D
