Rocky Horror Picture Show App Arriving 2017

Rocky-Horror-Show-Touch-meRHPS fans everywhere are getting bombarded with news. Not only is Rocky Horror Picture show being remade for television (we’re excited but admittedly reserved) – it’s getting an app. And not just any app, a game homaging one of our favorite RHPS songs “Touch-A, Touch-A Touch Me”. Check out the press release below and follow it’s progress and update over on the official website. 

Press Release:

Using the title of one of the show’s songs ‘Touh-A, Touch-A Touch Me’, the game will be released as a touch screen game that will launch on tablet and mobile platforms in 2017. The official game will use the experience of being a theatre member in the creation of the game and have consulted with theatre goers and gamers alike.

The Rocky Horror Show, which has been a global phenomenon since 1973, is embedded in popular culture with an incredibly passionate fan base. The show has been performed in theatres every year since it’s creation, has constant fan community activity across the world, and the brand is continually featured in TV shows, games, cameos and cultural references.

“Ella and I formed Rocket Lolly Games in order to bring this fantastic IP to market, which being fans ourselves we believe we can do with the care it deserves. Many great brands are cross-generational, but few capture the collective imagination like The Rocky Horror Show, which has managed to be gently outrageous since the 70’s; it is as relevant today as it was when it first launched,” said Oscar Clark, director and co-founder of Rocket Lolly Games. “Rocky is about the outsider to whom we all relate. It’s a story about coming of age and diversity; a welcoming and joyous experience which, as Rocky fans ourselves, it is an absolute pleasure to be entrusted. It’s our hope to show what a small studio can do to expand a brand such special as this into games.”

“I have worked with Richard O’Brien on The Rocky Horror Show since it all began. Rocky has been realized as a theatre show, a film and a game before. However, now is the perfect time for it to be reimagined in a way that could only exist on our phones and tablets,” said Andy Leighton, director of Druidcrest Ltd., and music publisher of The Rocky Horror Show. Ella and Oscar’s passion for this project makes them the perfect people to bring the experience to a new audience, as well as to those who already love the show!”

Rocket Lolly Games is focused on addressing the challenge of taking a brand forward in a way that is appropriate to the medium. The studio is therefore aiming to create the best possible tactile gameplay experience, and to find new ways to socially connect players to create shared moments by tapping into the quintessential aspect of The Rocky Horror show – what it is to be an audience member. Don’t Dream It… Be It.

About Meg

Blond, bold and brainy. Already scared aren’tcha? When Meg’s not book learnin’ or arguing the anatomy of zombies – shes probably in the ocean, watching star trek, or forcing everyone around her to endure horror moviethons. Bruce Campbell? Her personal demi-God. Costuming, comics, charity work, college and a kidlet take up most of her time. But seriously, who needs sleep when you’re training the future generation of nerd? With great power comes great responsibility…..or something.
