Rock Band is a series of music rhythm games, developed by Harmonix.
Players use guitar, drum, keyboard, and microphone controllers to simulate the experience of performing music together. They can craft personalized avatars, create a band with friends, and embark on tour campaigns around the game world.
In the third installment, realistic MIDI instruments became available, offering players the opportunity to develop real-world guitar and keyboard skills. The series now includes over a dozen titles across a half dozen platforms, with thousands of songs available for play. It has received numerous awards and commendations for its musicality, visual appeal, and multiplayer experiences.
I contributed to these games as a researcher, design consultant, UX analyst, and playtest coordinator.
