Back in February 2016 we reported around the Rocky Horror Show benefiting from mobile gaming love with a brand new title getting produced by Rocket Lolly Games called The Rocky Horror Show: Touch Me. Unfortunately, at that time there is very little information regarding the game itself, aside from the fact it is being made. Today, however, there exists a little more detail concerning the game as well as an early look at the gameplay itself.
What we did know with our original article is that the developers consulted with theater goers and gamers, in addition to actual theater members of the show as well as their experience of as being a some of it, in relation to making the sport and trying to help keep the experience playing it authentic. The core idea for the game would be to allow players the ability to create their very own dance routines, and then share by using friends to replicate or perhaps enhance them. The initial show had a large amount of audience participation, to ensure that is exactly what Rocket Lolly is trying also to bring to the game with the whole friend sharing aspect.
As you progress with the game, you will be able to unlock new songs, characters, dance moves, stage sets and much more. On top of that, you will find missions and challenges to accomplish, with achievements to achieve. The dancing portion of the game utilizes a combination of swipe gestures and tap combinations in your screen, all of which is within time to classic Rocky Horror Show songs.
Whether you are a lover of Rocky Horror or perhaps a lover of great gameplay, we need your allow us to get this to game the ‘wild and untamed thing’… and in particular therefore we can continue to release new characters, new gameplay, and variations from the different eras and styles from the music from the show. We’ve enough to help make the basic game having a certain na?ve charm, although not the muscle and juicy bits. There aren’t many communities as engaged and committed as Rocky Horror and gaming fans. We need to channel that amazing community support to create farmville everything it could and really should be. – Ella Romanos, co-director of Rocket Lolly Games
Right now Rocket Lolly is focusing on the game, but are also seeking to further its development by getting additional funding via Kickstarter. The campaign isn’t live just yet, as it is slated to start on April 27th, 2016. So if you wish to throw a couple of dollars only at that game’s development, you’ve got a bit of time for you to get those dollars together.
The Rocky Horror Show: Touch Use is slated for release between 2017 and will also be free with optional IAPs. A few of the Kickstarter rewards include rare items related to the original show, in case you’re a fan/collector. We will post an update once the Kickstarter campaign launches. In the meantime, you can check out the first gameplay video below.
