KAYSVILLE, Utah, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gamers to live out their rock and roll dreams in a new board game called CHOPS from Quirky Engine Entertainment. Players hire musicians, build bands, and play gigs for cash and buzz. But rock and roll has never been so dangerous. With obstacles like bar brawls, polka resurgences, the threat of being sent to military school, alien abduction, and even demonic possession, CHOPS mixes a bit of fantasy with a sense of humor for a rollicking time with friends or family around the game table.
"We went beyond just creating a really great game," said Craig Nybo, lead designer of CHOPS. "We built a whole world of rock and roll. We wrote bios on each of the in-game musicians. We put together historical information about the venues. We even wrote short stories about some of the bands in the game. Our theory: if we create a rock and roll world and invite players in for a visit, the game will take on a life of its own."
But most of the "world" information created by CHOPS game developers will never make it in the game table. World building, according to Nybo and other Quirky Engine game inventors is a necessary background part of creating a great game.
Although CHOPS is scheduled for a pre-Christmas release, gamers can get an early glimpse of the game and even pick up a pre-release copy by backing Quirky Engine's Kickstarter. Quirky plans to release tons of free and entertaining media throughout the 30-day period of their CHOPS Kickstarter, including video bios about musicians in the game and even a full album of rock and roll music that they claim was written and recorded by in-game bands (some of which are: The Punk Cats, Acid Holiday, Skinning Tuesday, and Trip Vicious). For more information, gamer/rockers can visit http://kickstarter.quirkyengine.com.
Quirky Engine Entertainment currently has 3 games out on the market, Hoagie, a goofy kitchen adventure, Trash War, a game of junkyard combat waged by medieval knights, and Shoot Your Friends, a lightning-fast card game that comes with an electronic toy gun.
