The year is 1993. The rock star Axel Pose is on the peak of his success and in celebration of his new album, a radio station organizes a lottery. Answer five question about this album and win a meeting with Axel Pose. This game is based on the real-life band Guns 'n' Roses and their front man Axl Rose. As a big fan, you are of course trying to buy the album immediately - but it is not as easy as it seems...

As a promotional game, Backstage is neither long nor complicated. With a standard point-and-click interface you solve puzzles and speak to people. During the whole game, an advertising message is clearly delivered urging the player to join Lifeclub, a real buyer's club for purchasing products at discounted prices.

Besides the in-game competition, there was also a real-life competition included: players receive a special word when beating a game. Who sent it to Liveclub before June 30, 1994 could win one of five Fiat Cinquecentos.
