BackgroundRock Manager puts you in complete control of a rock band. Your task is simple; make them stars! Bribe the local radio station to get more airplay for your band, or buy up all your records to create increased demand. Use any means necessary to make the band climb the charts - anything goes in this strung-out world of swindle, lies and rock n' roll.
- Put a Band Together!: Cast the losers from the basement of your local video store or hire world-class musicians to create a super group. Choose from scores of musicians to form a band to your liking. Meet the likes of John Benny, the old-timer who used to be a big star, Roy Dowert, the afro-hair guitarist who keeps getting into trouble, and Corky Jones, probably the angriest and lousiest drummer to set foot in a practice room. Your most difficult task is to make these characters work together.
- Record a Song: Much like a real-life recording studio, Rock Manager's mixer interface allows you to add sound effects like reverb, delay, flanger and so on, set volume and panning individually for each musician. Your own musicians can't play? Try some session pros for size! Just watch out, 'cause the band might be upset when they find out they're not playing on the track.
- Go on the Road: The big challenge. Can you make it through a long and demanding world tour, dodging groupies, shady promoters and on the road boredom? Lots of accidents can happen along the way, like submerged tour buses, lost band members and cancelled shows. Make good plans and bring a lot of cash.
- Rock City: This is the Capital of Rock, a Mecka for music industry wannabes on a pilgrimage to glory. Packed with recording studios, concert venues, record labels, song publishers, video producers, tour promoters, and media, Rock City houses both the filthy rich and successful and the used-up never-beens. Which will you be?
