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.

When we last left our faithful Paladins (er, excuse me…I mean Paladine), they were engaged in simple castle courtyard chores like picking up straw and shoveling horse poopies. But that all came to a screeching halt when alarms sounded; Castle Sanctum was under attack!!!

It was previously reported that after only its second year the queer-friendly gaming convention GaymerX would be no more. Numerous reasons were cited for the con’s end, the biggest one being a significant lack of financial support from sponsors and game companies to help with the event’s already high costs. Running a game convention at a major hotel in one of the most expensive cities in the world is no small feat, and organizers Toni Rocca and Matt Conn have publicly shared their uncertainty of holding another con, let alone breaking even on the first two. Since then a number of game developers have stepped up with financial support for the convention.

Today it has been announced that GaymerX is coming back for a third year and will be rebranded as GX3: Everyone Games.

First I’ve got a little something to say about the new Doctor Who, and if you’re a fan of the series, you might not like what I’ve got to say. Then it’s on to videogames, where I talk a little bit about the two new Vita games that I sampled thanks to PlayStation Plus, and how it makes me frustrated that those are all the Vita seems to get anymore. This week’s episode is after the jump!

Longtime GayGamer readers are no doubt familiar with Luciano Costa, the openly gay face model for Mass Effect‘s Kaidan. When not helping save the universe from the Reapers or modeling that gorgeous face of his, Costa runs with the SoCal Social Club, organizing recreational and networking events for the LGBTQ community of Southern California. Today (well, yesterday) he joined the masses by participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

I know, I know….your internet has been clogged with these videos, but it’s all for a good cause and anyone with a crush on Kaidan will no doubt enjoy this one.

Dear Diary,

Big doin’s this week in Geneva! We said good-bye to one resident, and said hello to a new one. Plus, I had another weird letter from my mom: “To my sweet Chris, There was a fireworks display in town tonight. It was so beautiful! It made me wonder if you could see it from your town. Is it too far away? – Mom”

So… my mother doesn’t know where I live? I’m the mayor! How can she not know where I’m mayoring? Sigh… Also, she included fireworks paper, which is nice because I totally forgot to check out the fireworks show this week. Oops! Well, there’s still a couple more to enjoy, I think!

Read on for the rest of the fun!

So I had my very own quest this week, but of the road-tripping down the entire length of the East Coast variety. ‘Twas arduous, but then I pit-stopped in Atlanta. ‘Twas magnifique…et très gay. Then I bee lined west to Louisiana. So here I am, and I only just plopped down on a couch to catch up on ABC’s The Quest. I wonder how Queenie is doing!
