In Find Your Own Way Home the gamer plays the role of Ruby Easton, a hip Hollywood reporter for the entertainment television program, Entertainment Now.
For the past few weeks, Ruby has been on assignment with the legendary rock band, REO Speedwagon. Tonight the band’s new album debuts. Entertainment Now will be airing Ruby’s stories from the time she spent with the band on tour and in the recording studio. Tonight there’s a star-studded album release party at a fabulous oceanfront estate. Ruby will be doing her first live red carpet report. She has butterflies!
But as Ruby’s busy day is unfolding, as she prepares for tonight’s broadcast, and the gala event to follow, an unexpected mystery-adventure will begin. REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin doesn’t show up for pre-party interviews with Ruby. When, hours later, still no one knows Kevin’s whereabouts, the player finds herself with a chance to be the hero as she tracks down clues to locate the missing star.
The game is expertly crafted with hand-drawn illustrations, compelling sounds, and elegant usability. Curious Sense has designed Find Your Own Way Home to appeal equally to loyal hidden object players and REO Speedwagon fans – many of whom are not (yet) video game players.
Find Your Own Way Home is also bringing innovation to the genre – in particular by bridging the virtual world with the real. All consumers who buy the game will be granted a coupon code for discount music purchases. Additionally, game buyers who make it to the final level of the game will have the chance to find a “golden ticket,” a well-hidden special object which will grant a handful of players concert tickets to an REO Speedwagon performance and a backstage meet-and-greet with the band.
Throughout the game, several REO tracks from their latest album as well as some of their Top 40 classics from the ‘70s and ‘80s are used.
Find Your Own Way Home is the first game in the downloadable casual game category done with a real rock band, and the first in a Series of Music Games by Curious Sense.
