Reggae singer and cultural icon Bob Marley is set to be the subject of an upcoming free-to-play rhythm mobile game, Bob Marley World Tour, in November.

Canada-based independent mobile game developer and publisher LBC Studios Inc. (LBC) announced last week (September 14) that it is collaborating with the Marley family to create the game.

In the game, players will assume the role of a band manager whose band performs different songs from members of the Marley family, including original and remixes of Bob Marley’s songs, in different cities around the world. They will get the chance to choose band members with special abilities across various music genres.

“The goal of Bob Marley World Tour is to cultivate a diverse community of music lovers, Marley fans, and mobile gamers alike and discover the magic of unity created through Bob Marley’s presence,” LBC said.

“We wanted to develop a game that reflects not only Bob Marley’s music, but his philosophies, philanthropy and his ability to bring people together,” said Solon Bucholtz, CEO of LBC Studios.

“We know fans of Bob Marley and our family will be excited about Bob Marley World Tour as we are. It has been joyful to work with LBC on a game that helps bring this music to the world through such an interactive experience,” said Ziggy Marley, son of Bob Marley.

“It has always been our goal to provide fans with unique opportunities to enjoy the family’s music, and we are glad that this upcoming title will further that mission through an entirely new platform,” he continued.

The game will be on iOS and Android mobile devices and is already available to pre-register in the Google Play Store.
