Austin, Texas, July 28th, 2020 – Want to look the part in your rock band? Then you’ll be needing an awesome guitar and haircut. Gilligames’ rock ‘n’ roll band sim, “Rising Star 2“, has released two new videos showcasing its latest customization options!
And not only that, Gilligames has also just announced that “Rising Star 2” is coming to Steam on August 12th, 2020.
Whether it’s a Gibson Flying V, Le Paul Classic or Gretsch Duo Jet, every guitar is up for grabs. Not only can you collect and have your band perform with them, but you’ll also get to put them on display for all to see.
If you’re going to get gigs however, you’ll need to fine-tune your image, not just your guitar strings. With a wide range of hairstyles to choose from, from long locks to a messy top, you’ll be able to get the perfect cut.
As a solo development project, the long-awaited sequel to ‘Shady O’Grady’s™ Rising Star’ is a labor of love. As the rock equivalent of Football Manager, Rising Star 2 lets you customize your band, pick your set list, trash hotel rooms, rent your first digs, and secure a manager: it’s down to you to decide how your path to stardom plays out.
A dynamic musician attitude system (DMAS) to recruit compatible musicians and kick out musicians that no longer get along.
Hiring managers to find recording contracts, endorsements, and book individual gigs or entire tours.
