One can only imagine what a Taylor Swift mobile game would entail — perhaps it’d involve a large claw crane that grabs from a pit of other influential celebrities and plops them into a “squad,” or perhaps you’d play as Taylor Swift and select from a list of nice things to say to fans while surreptitiously cyber-attacking the “big disappointment” Katy Perry game, or perhaps you’d simply play some ridiculously catchy, safe tunes.
The possibilities are clearly endless, but we’ll find out exactly how one company decided to render an essentialized Taylor Swift experience in December, if they release their game by the projected Christmas-centric date.
Glu Mobile — who made the Kim Kardashian mobile game (which was released in June 2014 and has already made $127 million in revenue), as well as the aforementioned Katy Perry game that didn’t fare as well — is developing their own Taylor Swift app for smartphones and tablets. The company’s chief executive, Niccolo de Masi, said:
Taylor is arguably the most popular person in the world with over 220 million social followers. She has sold over 40 million albums and there is uniquely strong interest in both her music and life from all demographics.
Apparently, the company is also in the midst of gamifying the personas of Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Kylie and Kendall Jenner and chef Gordon Ramsay.
