Description

Starting as high school kids in band class, this game sets players on a path through the music industry where the sky's the limit -- at least, if drug-induced burnout doesn't strike first. Gigs start as clandestine affairs after school, then as the band expands and develops, the intrepid crew of musicians graduates to bar-band status, competitors at battles of the bands, a meager existence in a tour van, and, if lucky, opening spots for international headliners and TV appearances. Players get to choose their instruments and customize their musical style, going so far as to be able to name their epic jams. Will their focus be on sex, drugs or rock 'n roll? Setting that priority is the player's prerogative. Will they take an agent or wait long enough to negotiate a record contract on their own? Again, the choice goes to the player. And will their favourite talented groupie end up enhancing the band, taking it over or destroying it? There are a thousand tales in the storied rock 'n roll business, and this game tells all of them.

Choice of Games titles make consistent use of an unusual interface: game output takes the form of long text passages, dynamically responsive to earlier choices the players have made, and opportunities for player input come at junctions where a choice needs to be made -- at which point the player selects one from a list.
