Rockstar Rising is a social Facebook game built for Whotune Music Group with the unified purpose of exposing the world to independent music. The core game experience is centered on building a band, learning songs, and playing at venues.
Rockstar Rising features social gameplay elements, band customization, the ability to write music, and "link throughs" to band profiles. Players utilize 45-50 second clips of independent music to progress through the game, so there's plenty of hooks to connect players with bands.
Offbeat was responsible for charting and preparing over 300 songs for Rockstar Rising. It also ends up that Justin, Micah, and Jason were on the development team that made the game (21-6 Productions) .
Since launch Rockstar Rising has resulted in over 10 million song plays for independent artists.
