Mean Girls. The Video Game.

This is so fetch.

It’s been 10 years since Mean Girls first hit screens, becoming an instant classic that is as quotable as it is hilarious. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t reference a line from the movie, use a .gif of Regina George to respond to something, note that the limit does not exist, or chastise someone for trying to make something happen that’s not going to happen. This is one of those movies that truly defines a generation.

Today it finally becomes a video game. Cue every gay squee noise I can muster.

Via So Much Drama Studios:

“If You Have Ever Felt Personally Victimized by Regina George, This Game is For You

Designed as an easily accessible ‘tiara-defense’ game, Mean Girls finds the original Plastics at peace with their world, when a new upstart Plastics clique attempts to take control of North Shore High School by piecing together the broken Spring Fling Tiara. Players can select from eight of their favorite Mean Girls characters—Cady, Regina, Gretchen, Karen, Janis, Damian, Aaron, and Kevin, each with their own distinct boost abilities—and all the cliques from the cafeteria, to help defeat opponents and complete each level.”

The mobile “tiara-defense” game is not unlike your standard tower-defender: You place troops, you set up traps, and you keep the oncoming hoards of enemies away from their goal. Only this time around your troops are who you hang out with and the enemies are the opposing cliques.

Comic mean girls

While it may not seem like an obvious genre to slap the Mean Girls name on, it’s actually quite clever. Just as in the original film the cafeteria is a carefully mapped out warzone, with factions ranging from the Varsity jocks to the girls who eat their feelings to the burnouts to the Plastics. And just as Lindsay Lohan’s Katy Herron went to war with Regina George, players will go to war to protect their tiara from those who’d try to snatch it away.

Does this sound like the most fabulous game ever, or does this sound like the most fabulous game ever? Who would come up with such a game? None other than So Much Drama’s Jeff Medor, creator of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis, one of our gayest games of the year two years running. As was the case with Dragopolis, Mr. Meador isn’t trying to make a lazy licensed tie-in game…he wants this to be a product that true fans will enjoy through and through.

Mean Girls is hilarious, brutal, and endlessly quotable; I absolutely loved watching and re-watching the film,” said Jeff Meador, founder and president, So Much Drama. “The game is rich with the quirky humor, over-the-top high school power struggles, and everything from hilarious lines, peppermint foot cream, to, yes, the Burn Book.”

Burn Book mean girls

No matter which clique players belong to, from band geeks and preps to regulation hotties, Mean Girls offers seven different ways to play including gameplay modes such as You Can’t Sit With Us, Social Suicide, She Doesn’t Even Go Here, and The Limit Does Not Exist.”

Mean Girls is slated for release on mobile platforms soon. I bet it will make for a great candy-gram.

And none for Gretchen Weiners. Bye.

Sir, You Are Being Hunted Available For Pre-Order

by
  • Facebook

  • Digg

There are two things we know about British people – one indisputably true, the other, a result of inference. The former is that they represent the very height of class and sophistication: their minds harboring clever witticisms and salvos of wordplay that would make the most fervent english-geek blush. In light of this, we can only conclude that they must be robots.

Yet there are those who call attention to the plight of the organic Briton. One such group is UK-based Big Robot, creator of the “tweedpunk” game, Sir, You Are Being Hunted. Having exceeded its Kickstarter goal – garnering £92,551, with a goal of £40,000 – the game is well into production, with a multiplayer component to be added for meeting its £80,000 stretch goal. For those who didn’t contribute to the Kickstarter, the pre-order for Sir, You Are Being Hunted is currently live. This perilous trek through the British countryside can be secured for $20 through the Humble Store; those who do so will also enjoy “early access in our second round of testing prior to release, along with the base Kickstarter tiers.

So for those keen on taking the fight to the robot aristocracy, check out the above links for more info on Sir, You Are Being Hunted! For those particularly curious, here’s an overview (from the Kickstarter page) of some of the game’s features:

 

  • Procedural tools to generate, save, and explore your own landscapes.
  • Open-ended gameplay: choose how you want to play. Complete the game non-lethally, or use whatever you can find to bring down the tweedbot menace.
  • A Thief-style visibility-meter combined with our own foliage-based stealth system.
  • Unique generative soundtrack.
  • A disembodied sinister butler!
  • Pubs!
  • No DRM!
  • Varied loot including weapons, traps, booze, marmalade, tea, something that may or may not be bacon, and a dead rabbit.
  • Fires to cook that rabbit on. (And other things besides!)
  • Mac, Windows and Linux versions.
  • Strange lore and pipe-smoking moustache-wearing mechanical locals.
