Rock 'n' Roll Will Never Die!, a rocking indie adventure inspired by classic point-and-click games, heavy metal, and underground comix, is finally out on Steam (PC/Windows). It's time to jump into the beer-soaked denim vest of a middle-aged teddy bear to orchestrate the comeback of his old glam metal band. One tiny problem in this quest is the fact that glam metal has been the laughing stock of everyone in the music industry since the 1980s, but a true heavy metal heart never stops beating!
The game deals with rock clichés and music industry shenanigans through comedy and satire. The player gets to experience all the fun that the life of a middle-aged musician has to offer: organizing schedules with bandmates who have families and careers, rehearsing in moldy basements, and playing Tuesday night support gigs in empty bars for no money. All the things that are collectively known as "The Rock 'n' Roll Dream"!
After over three years in development, Rock 'n' Roll Will Never Die! offers about ten hours of wild adventures all over the rockosphere with cool hand-drawn graphics. The project director is Valtteri Tavast, a Finnish cartoonist and musician, and many of the game's adventures are based on real-life experiences as a bass player in a punk band no one's heard of.
For some of us, the 1980s never ended. The true scene veterans persevered through the changing trends in music, fashion and common decency, keeping glam metal alive through sheer stubbornness and detachment from reality. When one of the least successful bands in hair metal decides it's time for a comeback, no one is safe. They may have put on a few pounds and lost some of their graying hair, but their rocking power and sex appeal are still... Uh, as questionable as ever? But this time they're sure to make it big. This time rock 'n 'roll will never die!
In this hilarious point-and-click adventure you jump into the denim vest of a middle-aged teddy bear to orchestrate the comeback of your old glam metal band – no matter that glam metal has been the laughing stock of all music fans for decades. It's coming back, I swear!
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 in empty bars for no money! Hours of adventuring with 100+ characters and exciting locations in glorious hand-drawn 1920 x 1080 pixel graphics. It's pretty cool!
