December 5th, Brisbane, Australia - Today
Halfbrick is proud to announce that its collaborative project with
fellow Aussie developer Six Foot Kid has launched worldwide on the
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.
