Go To
From left to right, Emmitt, Robin, Dallas and Beau

Kicked out by her old band, Robin vows to create her own. Rock Robin is a mixture of band management sim and dating game. Play as a rockstar girl, raise your band, release albums and fall in love!

The beta can be found here.

This game contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Anchored Ship: Dallas' route feels like this. Robin puts distance between them because she doesn't want to form a relationship with him only for him to leave and hurt her. They overcome this in the end though.
  • Hopeless Suitor: In flashbacks, Dallas. Robin was head-over-heels for Sterling at the time and didn't see him in a romantic light.
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: Wizz and Robin will call each other "nerd" and "tramp", but will rip into anyone else who calls the other names.
  • Lead Bassist: Robin falls under this as the lead vocalist and bassist.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Emmitt's dad's a famous rockstar, and his parents pay more attention to his older brother Marcus instead.
  • Loving Details: Dallas and Robin have this with each other, mainly due to their history. She remembers to change the station when a song he doesn't like comes up, he describes the details of her eyes when she asks.
  • Love Triangle: Dallas liked Robin, who at that time was already in a relationship with Sterling.
  • Male Band, Female Singer: True for Story Mode, and can be invoked by the player in Open Mode as well.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: Faust mistakes Robin for cheating simply because she buys him opera tickets.
  • New Game Plus: After completing Story Mode once, Open Mode unlocks where Robin can create a new band and carry on playing indefinitely.
  • Oblivious to Love: Robin. Emmitt's crush on her always comes as a surprise, and she finds it impossible that Dallas liked her.
  • The Nicknamer: Robin often gives her band members nicknames. She calls Emmitt 'Kirby' and her calls her 'Bobby' in return. Beau is 'Ponytail,' and Dallas is 'Freelancer'.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: There's the opportunity to start Open Mode with a previous romance, so if you pursue another character you break your old partners heart. Especially heart-wrenching when there's been so much character/relationship development in Story Mode.
  • You Never Did That for Me: Robin says this about Sterling to Emmitt, when he hands her a towel because she thinks she's about to vomit.
