Kudos: Rock Legend is a spinoff of the game Kudos. Unlike the previous Kudos game, however, this game allows you to start your own rock/pop band. You start by picking a band name and its members. When the game begins, however, you start off with very little money and no band members except for yourself as the lead vocalist.
The player begins as a vocalist with ambitions for becoming a rock star, setting a personal goal of achieving this in five years. The player then must hold auditions for other bandmates, including a drummer, a bassist, and a guitarist (required to continue), as well as a keyboardist, and a saxophone player (optional) the player must write enough songs to fill a "setlist" allowing him to play "gigs" at a first limited but later expanded number of venues. Once a sufficient number of songs have been written, and enough money has been made, the player can create an album which can be sold a gigs, along with T-shirts, sweatshirts, and posters, for additional profit. Although the game is either won or lost after five years, gameplay is allowed to continue after that.
