Get ready to do the time warp again! Believe it or not but there’s a game based upon one of the greatest musicals about a cross dressing transsexual from Transylvania ever, The Rocky Horror Picture Show!
A so far successful Kickstarter campaign has brought forth to serious fans some fun in the Rocky Horror Picture Show game. Meant to be a music rhythm action game, it’s based off the original and not the *ahem* tainted Fox reboot. Therefore we’ll see everyone’s favorite Riff Raff and Magenta. Frank, Eddie, Rocky, Janet, Brad, I could go on. It’s going to be a blast for fans reminiscent of Richard O’Brien’s version.
What an action rhythm game is meant to be still puzzles me. I’m super excited for it but at the same time cautious as I have the rhythm of a fat, white, ginger. That and it’s mostly being developed for mobile devices. Which is cool on one hand as that puts it in tons of hands but will it dumb Rocky Horror down?
The Rocky Horror game Kickstarter has already surpassed its initial goal of $35,000 and is still chugging along. If you’d like to back the project, you can go here to do so. I know you do. You have a soft spot for ole Frank, don’t you?
Any Rocky Horror geeks out there? Would you folks pony up the dough for the game when it comes out? It’s just a step to the left to leave your comments.
