Create a world-famous band from scratch, starting with a bunch of enthusiastic teenagers and see if you can turn them into a stadium-filling act!
Get them writing songs, gigging and signed to a record label.
Release singles and albums and tour the UK, Europe and eventually the world!
However, it won’t always be a smooth ride - music trends change over time and that affects the buzz the band creates. Band members need to be looked after and kept happy to keep their mojo up!

Tons of potential to improve...
First off, this game is one of the best music industry simulators I’ve ever come across. As someone who works in the music industry, I find myself overly critical of these games sometimes, but this one is a blast.
The basics are there. It’s fun, easy to figure out, and does a pretty good job of drawing you in. The only thing I hate is the constant “pay to win” moments. There are literally some parts of the game that you cannot do great at unless you make a $0.99 purchase, specifically with hiring PR. 99 cents wouldn’t be bad, but there are many times in one game that you get asked to do this, and it adds up quick.
With some minor adjustments, this could be an absolutely perfect game, but still fun as is.
Fun game until...
The game is absolute fun until you get start getting to the top 100 artists. From then on, the only way to make your way to the top is to continue writing more albums. At this point, I think I have over 60 albums, which is way too much. Even The Beatles don’t have that many. I’m pretty much stuck at number 5 because I keep writing new albums but it barely gets me to the top. I think there should be more options to boost your popularity, like doing tours whenever you want, attending more festivals, doing meet and greets. Writing albums really starts to get tedious after a while and I’ve honestly lost the fun trying to get to number 1.
I also think we should have the ability to write an album with whatever amount of tracks I’d like. Bands release EPs all the time. Bands release albums with more than 12 tracks all the time. I’d also like to be able to put the songs in whatever order I want.
This is a game with a huge amount of potential that loses its fun quickly and would totally come back if these things were changed.
Good game but...
This game is amazing but I had an idea. I know it’s called BAND manager but I just thought It'd be nice to manage a single artist instead of a whole band. Also why aren’t we allowed to have Rap and R&B style bands? And to add one more thing. When you’re encountered by the PR Guru after making an album, why can’t that be a one time purchase of the .99¢ or 5 million dollars? I get tired of having to pay .99¢ just because I don’t have 5 million I’m in-game cash.. fix this please!
