There’s a curious trend happening where YouTube gaming personalities are releasing mobile games. There’s Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards ($4.99), and CaptainSparklez has the upcoming Fortress Fury, for example. PewDiePie, the arch-YouTuber, has got a game of his own in the works. PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist is coming to mobile, developed by Outerminds. PewDiePie featured the latest build of the game in a video just posted to his YouTube channel, showing off the action-platformer with pugs, brofists, and shark-punching.
This game is looking rather absurd, if only because of everything I mentioned, the inclusion of other YouTubers, and THE ILLUMINATI. This is a full-blown trend now, and it helps that these YouTubers have powerful ways to promote them. Expect PewDiePie: Legends of the Brofist this summer. Who else will have their own game? I look forward to the Totalbiscuit game, which would literally just be options menus. But of course, all this talk of YouTubers raises a very important question: When are we getting our Lonnie game?!
