Red Marble Games has announced a new Mac OS X game dubbed "Rock Legend" that is part RPG, part life-sim, part Tycoon game. Players take the role of a struggling rock singer who puts together his own band, and tries to achieve fame and fortune, from humble beginnings as a starving garage-band. They can pick their band-members, choose the band name, write the songs, play the gigs and more. Rock Legend is a turn-based game, in some ways similar to the gameplay of Kudos. Each turn of the game represents a single day, and it's up to users to decide how the band spends their time. Some of the activities users will need to spend time on include songwriting, rehearsals, auditions, publicity events, practicing individual instruments recording the latest album. The game is priced at $23.
