'Pretty Little Liars' launches mobile game
Pretty Little Liars might be ending its television run in 2017 — but its virtual life is just beginning.
Episode, the company behind Demi Lovato’s mobile game, announced the release of a new Pretty Little Liars game on Wednesday, calling it “a choice-driven story where the user can pick various paths throughout, which impact the story’s progression.”
In the game, your character is a new student at Rosewood High School, and Alison DiLaurentis takes you under her wing, bringing you to Spencer’s barn on the infamous night of Ali’s disappearance (she’s wearing the yellow tank top and everything!). As in Demi Lovato: Path to Fame and Episode’s Mean Girls: Senior Year game, the choices you make affect the course of the action. All of the show’s familiar faces are present — Emily Fields, Spencer Hastings, Hanna Marin, and Aria Montgomery — and in one of your first actions, you have to choose whether to side with Ali… or with the girls. Choose wisely.
“Pretty Little Liars is one of the most memorable shows of this generation,” said Michael Dawson, Episode’s head of studio, in a release. “It made perfect sense for Pretty Little Liars to come to Episode, and we’re thrilled to give people a unique way to explore the mysteries of Rosewood.”
Pretty Little Liars joins a spate of other celebrity and pop culture-focused mobile apps that have sprung up in recent years, from Kim Kardashian: Hollywood (2014) to Nicki Minaj: The Empire, released just last week.
The game is available on the App Store and Google Play now.
Four little liars and a being named “A” (who may or may not be the fifth little liar) try to live their lives in Rosewood. It’s complicated.
