Washboard Hero: Harmonix Goes for the Country/Bluegrass Demo

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 1, 2009


With the amazing popularity of music and rhythm games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, it was only a matter of time before game companies would release a version targeted to more rural musical tastes. Later this Spring, Harmonix will release Washboard Hero, the newest game in the popular franchise on store shelves across the heartland of America.

Washboard Hero puts you in the role of the lead musician of a good old country jug band. With classics like Home, Home on the Homestead, O Me O My O Me, and my personal favorite Possum Pie, the game will surely be a knee slapping good time. The game ships with a special wireless washboard controller that works with all of today’s popular consoles.

While the initial version of the game will only support the washboard controller, a whole set of instruments is planned, including a jug that you can blow into, a two-string wash tub bass, a mouth harp, and get this – a set of electronic spoons you can clack around on you kneecaps.
