Drilly Willis has a drill for a head and rocks at guitar.
But one night, in an envious rage, Flash Clappy, the most arrogant musician who ever lived, crashes Drilly's concert and banishes them to a world of things they hate.
Now Drilly must escape Flash Clappy's prison, fighting strange creatures with their drillhead and learning guitar songs that grant special powers when played. Along the way, they'll find items that unlock new areas, build upgrades to face stronger foes, and ally with living musical instruments also banished by Clappy, all with their own unique tales to tell.
Can Drilly escape this strange world and find their way back to the music? Or will Flash Clappy, a terrible musician who refuses to practice, succeed in banishing all good tunes, instruments, and musicians for eternity?

6. ABOUT THE DEVELOPER
Private Pook Games is the sole proprietorship of children’s author (I AM DRUMS, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), middle school teacher, and musician, Mike Grosso (https://mikegrossoauthor.com).
Growing up, Mike self-taught himself some basic commands in QBasic, which he explored as a kid the same way he explored guitars and drums. In between rock-out sessions, writing books for middle grade kids, and teaching middle school kids not to be afraid of math, he codes in C# and designs games in Unity that make him laugh and wonder.
Following the release of several mobile games under the Assumed Name of Private Pook Games, his larger and more ambitious DRILLY WILLIS, a warped Metroidvania featuring a drillhead protagonist with sick guitar skills, is ready to rock the world November 2020.
