RuPaul, of “Supermodel” song fame, said today when announcing his/her new iOS game: “I have enjoyed playing with myself for years, and now Drag Race fans can, too.” Um, yeah…. Well, it’s time to use that charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent, in RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis, a one-of-a-kind app that spices up the endless runner game genre with a new kind of heroine. RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis will be available for free download on iTunes for iOS devices on Monday, May 6 to coincide with that night’s season finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race. An Android version of the game will be released later in 2013.
RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis is a fantabulous adventure starring a drag queen fighting for RuPaul. The evil drag queen Apocalypstyk has broken into the workroom on day one of RuPaul’s Drag Race in order to sabotage the show and kidnap the sexy men in the pit crew. Players control our drag queen heroine, and can customize this ferocious character with sickening wigs, outfits and even their own face. In order to save the day, she races to the main stage, jumping and clawing her way past Apocalypstyk’s increasingly fierce minions, all while serving up new looks for the photo shoots! There is no RuPaulogizing in this game!
“Drag is such an amazing form of entertainment,” said Jeff Meador, the game’s creator and head of So Much Drama Studios. “I love the wit, theatricality, and heart that drag performers bring, and RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis is a great way to celebrate that. We’ve had so much fun making this game, and the support we’ve been getting from the drag community has been incredible. It’s so rewarding to see that people love playing RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopols as much as we loved making it.”
The game is a free download; gamers can also recruit celebrity drag queens Pandora Boxx, Yara Sofia or Manila Luzon for whole new adventures for 99 cents each. All three queens come fresh from scene-stealing turns on RuPaul’s Drag Race and RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race.
