Is this real life? Of course not, because this is exactly the kind of scenario that could only work in a video game. And isn't it wonderful.
Somewhere else, that's where. Rock Band 3 lead designer Dan Teasdale is leaving Rock Band developer Harmonix. In his blog, he states why.
Music game maestros Harmonix have already promised to "innovate and revolutionize the music genre" with Rock Band 3, but even in the face of that hyperbole, the designers believe "you'll be surprised at just how big this game really is."
While Harmonix senior designer Dan Teasdale had intentions of talking about LEGO Rock Band during his GDC talk, "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap: Design Lessons Learned From Rock Band," that obviously didn't happen.
Harmonix senior designer Dan Teasdale schooled GDC attendees today on the design philosophies that factored into the creation of Rock Band. That includes the critical "one question," a rule that even affected the game's name.
