OK, so…there’s this game my company’s making which is coming out in September. Â You might’ve heard me mention it — The Beatles: Rock Band?
Well, it just got its full announcement as the leadoff hitter at the Microsoft press conference which is kicking off this year’s E3 expo. Â And, um, it was introduced by Yoko Ono and Olivia and Dhani Harrison (George‘s widow and son).
And Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
Introducing and praising our game.
Relatedly, and much more pertinent to me: Â concurrent with the announcement, we relaunched the official website for the game, which now features actual information and images. Â And the gameplay trailer, which you really should totally go check out immediately for it is amazing and beautiful. Â You can get a little more of an idea of what the game’s going to be, and see the big gameplay upgrade in this one: Â vocal harmonies. Â That’s right, up to three singers at the same time — and doing actual harmonies, even, not just all singing the same thing. Â It’s gonna be tremendous.
Also, the site is gorgeous — mad props to Rumsey and Abby for all of their hard design work. Â And to everyone else on my team who either worked on the site or just supported it by being nearby while we worked on it: Â Colby, Colin, Jess, Jeff, Christine, Matt, David,Â Jim,Â Russen and Ady. Â I’m extraordinarily proud to work with you guys, and I think this site is terrific — and the next version of the site will be even terrificker.
