Rising Star 2 is a music industry simulator where you take on the role of their customizable own rookie musician and practice hard to achieve rock band stardom.

Rising Star 2 introduces a more immersive 3D world, yet retains the upgradeable classic RPG-style skill system found in the original.

Players can upgrade their songwriting, instrument playing, stage presence, production, repair, and business skills to make it to the top. With thousands of customizable combinations of items and outfits, they are in charge of building their own star. As the band leader, players must recruit musicians with compatible personalities, book gigs across the country to increase their popularity, earn money from odd jobs to stay alive while pursuing a music career and make their own path to become successful.

Rising Star 2 is a full musical career experience and players can tailor the customizable experience to fit any lifestyle they want.

Previously listed as a Q3 2020 launch, developer Gilligames has narrowed it down to August 2020.

Key Features:

  • A dynamic musician attitude system (DMAS) to recruit compatible musicians and kick out musicians that no longer get along.
  • Hiring managers to find recording contracts, endorsements, and book individual gigs or entire tours.
  • Full customization of a band's appearance with thousands of combinations of hairstyles, makeup, and clothing.
  • Customizing the band’s van appearance with more than 80 different paint jobs.
  • Purchase and own a variety of houses to call home that can be upgraded and decorate to your liking.
  • Living the classic rockstar life by trashing hotels & motels for inspiration and fun.
  • Choosing from 600 different types of real equipment to see what works best for the band.
  • Booking venues and tours across more than 130 cities in the United States.
  • Thousands of locations to explore including homes, bars, theaters, stadiums, clothing stores, music stores, studios, hotels, art galleries, print shops, manager offices, garages, parks, cemeteries, and hospitals.
