Update, Unlocked character customization!

You requested it so we delivered it
Character customizations are now unlocked for both bandmates and players. This means you can change your drummers hairstyle or beard. No limitations besides the exception of gender and skin tone.

New shirts
Panos got around to creating some cool new shirts. Take a peep!

These definitely are more unique than the other shirts currently available ingame so you should consider trying them out.

More polish
It appears we overlooked some minor details in character customization such as the scrollbar not checking for the mouse properly and some buttons not being shown as disabled. Fear not as all is well now.

  • Characters (both player and bandmates) can be fully edited now with the exceptions
    of gender and skin tone
  • Added five new shirts
  • Improved mouse checking for scrollbars in character customization
  • Beard/Beard color buttons are now be visually disabled for female characters

Update, a much needed update!

Improving basd on your feedback
After a much needed break from development we're coming back to improve the quality of life for RGT. In the coming days Panos plans to bring in some more customization options for characters!

Time freeze bug
We've heard a lot of people bring up the time freezing bug and yet a ton of players were able to play upwards of 50 hours without any issues. Since it didn't seem urgent it got pushed off for a while but we're finally attempting to resolve it. I've made some changes to the code surrounding record deals and booked events that should hopefully prevent anymore time freezes from occuring. As always your feedback is crucial so if you still get the bug please exit the game and email me a copy of your save file so that I may further diagnose the issue.

Windowed mode is back
After a number of complaints we switched the game to borderless windowed instead of normal windowed but it turns out the majority actually prefers windowed mode as that allows the window to be resized freely. So we've returned to that.

Attempting to increase compatibility
This part is a bit technical but we've reduced texture page sizes in hopes of making the game more functional for less capable video cards. Not sure if this will actually solve the problems we've heard from the community but we are hopeful.

  • Reduced standard texture page size from 8192x8192 to 4096x4096
  • Switched the game back to Windowed mode
  • Fixed a possible time stop bug with album finalization
  • Fixed a possible time stop bug with booked events such as gigs and video clips
  • Drug Dealer image is properly removed from memory when the popup menu is closed
  • Minor optimizations to script referencing throughout the game

About This Game

Rock God Tycoon (RGT) places you at the helm of your very own band and on the path to your own rock destiny. Choose your character’s discipline from guitar, bass, drums, or vocals, then hire the rest of your band before hitting the road to stardom. Manage your group and decide when deadwood needs to be cut. Fed up with the drummer missing shows? Fire the slacker and replace him!

Model your fully customizable characters with 300+ available items, all exceptionally detailed, beautifully designed, and with frequent new additions. Everybody needs to pay their bills though, and you’ll need to book the right shows and practice your songs to keep the money coming in; going from small town bars, to concerts halls and stadiums. Your band isn’t performing and is struggling to hold a note? Better put down that coffee to pick up that gauntlet and step on stage yourself to show them how it’s done. Gigging across 76 cities, each with unique venues, you'll constantly be on the road; whether it be in a van, tour bus, or a private jet.

As your skill and renown grows, so will your fan base. Head to the shop and use some of your cash to upgrade your instruments, equipment, and buy promotions in a fully realized catalogue of features. Make sure to manage the tension and egos in your band carefully, and while you’re at it, don’t forget to pay the rent. Well placed info tabs show you every actionable detail of your band, and allow you to manage all of your band's day to day goals. RGT allows you to write your own songs, develop and release your own albums, and sign record deals with a variety of labels.

This is the music tycoon game you have been waiting for and deserve.
