[prMac.com] Boston, MA - Popular Mac-only game publisher, Red Marble Games, today announced the release of Kudos Rock Legend for the Macintosh. Unique, challenging, and highly entertaining, Kudos Rock Legend is part role-playing game, part life-sim game, and part Tycoon game, blended to create an experience that truly immerses the player in the game's high energy storyline.
In Kudos Rock Legend, players find themselves the leader of their own struggling rock band trying to break into the big leagues of rock super-stardom, fame, and fortune. In addition to being the band's lead singer, players must attend to the personnel and business management issues of the band. Players select musicians for their band, select a band name, write the band's songs, coordinate auditions, attend rehearsals, record albums, play gigs, and more.
As the band leader, the decisions players make determine how motivated his or her band members are. Work the band too hard, schedule poorly attended gigs, fail to provide the band with the rock star lifestyles to which they've become accustomed, and band members will resign. It's a delicate balancing act that demands keen people management, business, and financial skills … as well as an abundance of creativity to crank out the hit songs that carry the band on to fame and fortune. "Kudos Rock Legend is a fantastically entertaining game," said Mark Batten, founder and CEO of Red Marble Games. "It really challenges players on multiple levels and requires a keen sense of how those levels intertwine and interact with each other. As such, Kudos Rock Legend is immensely engaging and entertaining."
Priced at only $22.95 (USD), Kudos Rock Legend for the Mac is a Universal Mac OS X application that requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or better, and is available for immediate download directly from Red Marble Games' website.
Founded in 2002 by Mark Batten, renowned game publisher Red Marble Games came about with the idea of bringing great independent games, originally developed for the Windows platform, over to the Mac. In one form or another, Mac games have always been a passion of Batten's, and by focusing on porting and publishing rather than on original development, Red Marble Games is able to make a broader array of high quality titles available for Mac people to enjoy. Red Marble Games is proud to be a Mac-only company, and focuses on bringing Mac users games that are easy to learn and fun to play over and over again. Most all of Red Marble Games' titles are intended to appeal to the whole family. Custom screenshots and review copies are available by contacting support.
