Rocococo Audiogame Fantastique is a music-based audiogame with no visuals at all, and can be played by anyone from fully blind to fully sighted. As this indie game contains no visuals, you have to use your ears and cleverness to complete this narratively-driven puzzle adventure. Rocococo can be played with just a keyboard, keyboard + mouse, or Xbox game controller. Be on the lookout for the game being released on Steam (PC, Mac) in early 2024!
The year is 2793 and the reclusive but quixotic Queen of Candied Apples lives alone in the Palace of Versailles with her Robot-Butler, and an army of robot servants and ladies-in-waiting. You the Marquis d’Tective who has been hired by the Le Butler Roboto to assist him in recovering his corrupted memory-banks by reassembling the songs of legendary baroque synthpop band Rocococo. The Queen, who is a bit crazy, has chopped up the songs into individual tracks and scattered them throughout the many rooms of the palace. It’s up to you to use your ears to discover these musical tracks and reassemble them. Each of the 12 levels feature unique gameplay and as the levels get more difficult, there are robots that can do harm, and in many levels the Queen will chase you around to "off with your head!" Throughout the game the Queen gets increasingly devious and you must learn new skills to adapt and discover secret audio cues. As you progress, voice actors for both the Butler and Queen will advance the story and unravel the mysteries of the palace. Upon finishing the game, the player will discover a dramatic twist… zut alors!
