The charts in the palm of your hand with Music Inc.
New music app lets players nurture the careers of their own aspiring artists
Music Inc. is a brand new music app that will allow gamers to guide aspiring musicians through the highs and lows of a music career in the 21st century. Taking control of everything from song writing and styling to recording and securing radio play, gamers will see the impact that every managerial decision has on their wannabe’s career aspirations.
Launching in February, Music Inc. is the result of a collaborative effort from music industry body UK Music, the Intellectual Property Office and Aardman Animations.
The game has had full support from the music industry, ensuring realism combines with addictive game play throughout. If a gamer decides to make their artist’s single available for streaming, they will see the impact that decision could have on sales or indeed the effects of piracy. This game allows users to replicate many of the choices those in the music industry make on a daily basis.
While playing Music Inc., players will be able to:
· Select an aspiring artist – from a list of hopefuls and provide them with support to launch a successful career
· Shape the image of your artist – considering the impact that an artist’s charisma and styling can have on reputation
· Compose tracks – selecting from a roster of song writers, producers and studio technicians to polish that perfect song
· Balance the books – keeping a close eye on how radio play, streaming and the inevitable issues of unlicensed usage and piracy, impact the bottom line
Music Inc. will be available for iOS devices free of charge from the Apple and Android Stores.
