Start your engines because the addicting ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis’ smartphone game app is gearing up to launch a new version with some of your favorite Drag Race alum!
‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis’ version 2.0, which hasn’t confirmed an official release date, will include seven additional queens to choose from. (Seems appropriate with Drag Race Season 7 right around the corner.) Take a look at the picture above and see if you can guess who each of the seven queens are…
Give up? Here are the answers…
From left to right: Alaska Thunderfuck, JuJubee, Sharon Needles, Jinkx Monsoon, Ongina, Shangela and Raven.
These seven new characters will be added in addition to the queens available in the current version: Yara Sofia, Pandora Boxx and Manila Luzon.
If you haven’t downloaded version 1.0 yet, which debuted last year on May 6, it’s currently available in the Google Play Store and the iPhone App Store now at no cost, however, there is a $.99 fee if you choose to play as Yara, Pandora or Manila.
Here’s the general information overview from the Dragopolis Facebook page:
[quote]It’s time to use that charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent, hunty! Logo and World of Wonder team up with So Much Drama Studios, the company behind the hit game Fireflies!, to stir up the gaming field with 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, 2013 to coincide with that night’s season finale of Logo’s 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.”[/quote]
