You can soon sashay the RuPaul's Drag Race runway in a new video game
Player? I barely know 'er!
Developed by RuPaul and Leaf Mobile's East Side Games, which announced the project Wednesday morning, the new game will allow players to design their own drag looks, compete in challenges, and kiki with their favorite queens from the show on their iOS and Android devices.
The game will also feature iconic moments from RuPaul's Drag Race, RuMail deliveries, and pep talks from Mama Ru herself.
"The team at World of Wonder is always looking for new ways to bring the Drag Race experience even closer to the fans, and what better way than through a mobile game?" said Drag Race co-creators Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, who've also spearheaded the franchise's expansion around the world via spin-off series like RuPaul's Drag Race UK, Canada's Drag Race, Drag Race Holland, and the upcoming Drag Race Down Under and Drag Race España. "We are thrilled to partner with East Side Games on this charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent-filled mobile game experience!"
Leaf Mobile has worked on several games based on media projects in the past, including Archer: Danger Phone, Bud Farm Idle Tycoon, Cheech & Chong Bud Farm, The Goldbergs: Back to the '80s, It's Always Sunny: The Gang Goes Mobile, and Trailer Park Boys Grea$y Money.
RuPaul's Drag Race: The Mobile Game is set for release in the near future.
RuPaul — as host, mentor, and creative inspiration — decides who's in and who's out.
