Busker Boss is a fun, text based strategy RPG based on the business of the music industry. You're a musician hungry to prove yourself and make a living from what you love. The problem is you have hardly any money and just a few fans from street performances in and around town. The aim is to gain as many fans and earn as much money as possible.
Busk your way to a high score and boss level. Access new areas along the way as your fan base and financial situation improves.
Don't forget to pay your bills and return any loans as the interest increases daily. Choose from 30 and 60 day options, with a 90 day game mode available on purchase.
Other options include applying for a grant, doing a day job, rehearsing, networking, partying and joining a P.R.O. (Performing Rights Organisation. They pay a writer royalties for the performance of their songs).
Release your own music or when you have enough fans consider signing a recording or publishing deal.
In amongst the daily grind of performing there are a few bonuses and pitfalls. Make sure you have a permit to busk and watch out for the bailiffs.
If you don't lose by going to jail or partying too much, you can finish and tally up. Outstanding bills and loans are deducted from your money. This is then multiplied by your number of fans to help you hit the score board and compete with your mates.
Here are some of the features that make Busker Boss the perfect choice for a game to play if you're a budding musician, long time artist, a music fan, entrepreneur into business or burning time during your day with a little escapism:
◆ 7 Venue Types. Unlock access to additional venues as your Busker gathers more fans enroute to becoming a boss. High Street, Tube station, Student Union, Pub, Night Club, Big Field and Stadiums await. Make more money as the venues open up their doors to you and your fans.
◆ 6 Areas of London. Travel to different but popular parts of London Town with your Busker attempting to make more money. Beautiful screens capture the essence of each area and help set the mood. Finsbury Park, Covent Garden, Brixton, Shoreditch, Ladbroke Grove and Leicester Square have never been so easy to tour.
◆ 2 International Cities. Upgrade Busker Boss to hit Los Angeles and Tokyo. Earn more money and fans than ever before.
◆ Real Sounds and Music. Listen out for real street sounds and traffic as well as high quality music from the Diverse Music Solutions catalogue as you navigate the Busker Boss User Interface and Main Menu.
◆ Rewards and Score Board. Get additional bonuses in Busker Boss as you earn more money and fans carrying out music industry related activities. Rehearse, join a Performing Rights Organisation or Network. These will increase the money available to your Busker during each performance. Store your score and brag to your mates.
◆ Straight Forward Realistic Gameplay. Busker Boss is the most challenging music RPG available. It's so hard to build fans and make money, like in real life, that you'll get a kick figuring out how to land a high score.
