Let's Rock

Welcome to the official site for Rockheim, a classic RPG influenced by games such as Earthbound and Final Fantasy, and set in a colourful rock n' roll styled universe. 

The game follows the journey of a group of youths who must unite to save the world with the power of rock and roll music. Their garage band is the only thing standing between the evil forces of Rockheim and the complete annihilation of all good music (and the fiery death of all living souls). Join them in their quest to rise to fame and send the forces of Rockheim back to the underworld where they only play disco.

So that's the elevator pitch of the game. The long and short of it is, I've been playing a lot of Pokemon Let's Go and SNES classic lately and missing the nostalgia of some of the true classic RPGs. I can't be alone in wanting something colourful, something whimsical, something where every house can be explored just for the sake of it, and you can lose yourself in a lively video game town that seems like a real place. Not just a fantastical mystical far away land, but a town just like you grew up in. With kids and people and problems and a bus that takes you around town and every single trash bin can be inspected. Because there might be something hidden there. I've been seeing and playing games my whole life with massive mechs, giant sword guns, and all sorts of fantasy, but I really want to play something like Rockheim. And so I'm going to try to make it.

Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with updating the site weekly or bi weekly with a development log so that I'll be able to look back on this journey some day. And people may find it interesting to see how much hair I lose trying to make an RPG solo.
