"Classic rock" and "casual game" aren’t two phrases you often hear together, but REO Speedwagon: Find Your Own Way Home is combining the two. This upcoming hidden object game from Merscom and Curious Sense is based on Illinois-based band REO Speedwagon, classic rockers best known for hits like "Keep On Loving You" and "Can’t Fight This Feeling" and "Time For Me To Fly."
The game stars Ruby Easton, an entertainment television reporter who’s covering REO Speedwagon on their latest tour and in the studio as they record their new album. Ruby has to save the day after the band’s leader, Kevin Cronin, goes missing right before the band’s star-studded album release party.
According to Merscom, the story will offer players "a behind-the-scenes look at the world of a legendary rock band – and the high-pressure fun of a Hollywood reporter" across 60 levels of hidden object gameplay, puzzles, and mini-games.
The game’s title refers to the band’s 2007 album, also titled Find Your Own Way Home. Instrumental versions of REO Speedwagon’s music, including tracks from their latest album and two brand new recordings of "Keep On Loving You" and "Roll with the Changes," will be used throughout the game.
