Take Down your Enemies with Song in Chorus
The interactive adventure musical chorus has successfully reached its funding goal of $600K. Chorus, as the name suggests, is a musical game in development by Summerfall Studios. Summerfall are a team co-founded by former BioWare and Bearndog designers David Gaider and Liam Esler. The team consists of award-winning composer Austin Wintory, Troy Baker directing the voice actors, and Lauren Bailey as part of the cast.
Chorus takes place in a world of mythical gods, creatures, and magical powers and follows the story of a young woman named Grace who has gotten herself in trouble. Grace has been accused of murdering a “Muse” and must now prove her innocence through the power of music.
The action is driven by song rather than combat and is a mixture of dialogue and musical numbers. Grace has the ability to coax people into song and can then use her music to manipulate a character’s decision and alter reality.
The player can choose different dialogue options and lyrics that can change the outcome of the situation. You’ll be taking part in various musical encounters and conducting an investigation, but romance four of the characters, in true BioWare fashion.
Chorus is due to be released sometime in 2021.
