OverviewOverview

Evergreen Blues is a rhythm narrative game where you and a friend build lyrics to a song in real time. You select the words and timing and the game puts them together into lines of a song. What's unexpected and unusual about the game is that the songs form as you make these choices -- feeling like they take shape before you quite finish deciding what shape they should be.

It uses a real-time lyric-choosing mechanic, and is designed for both single and multiplayer play. There are six songs you can create. As you do your performers create a visual narrative to complement the signing.

It seems like a bit of fun, but as you play it becomes clear that this is an experience about the relationships between audiences, authors, and the characters and worlds they create.

You can get a feel for the game with the developer's previous project, Seasons.
