GamesCom 2013: BigFest Brings Music Festival Management to Vita
Posted by Sammy Barker
Big business, small bands
Assuming that you’re the type of person that loves to jabber on about unsigned indie bands rather than the latest Lady GaGa hit – it’s pretty good, by the way – BigFest should be your mug of homebrew. Leaked earlier in the year, and announced during the platform holder’s GamesCom press conference, the PlayStation Vita title blends Bullfrog with the X-Factor.
Using a database of real artists, you’ll need to construct the ultimate music festival in order to help them to hit the big time. That means arranging portaloos, constructing glamorous glamping sites, and hiring hot dog vans. It’s essentially Theme Park – but with more vomit and wellington boots. Who could resist?
Impressively, there’ll be an online component, too, which will allow you to visit your friends’ festivals and sour the mood with Tulisa-style kerfuffles. There’s no word on a release date just yet, but we’re already chomping at the bit to get our hands on this. We’re big fans of business simulation games, so this is a headline act for us.
