Rocket Lolly announces The Rocky Horror Show mobile game

No surprise given his storming PechaKucha at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2016, but Oscar Clark has announced he's working on a game based on Richard O'Brian's The Rocky Horror Show.

Clark announced the formation of distributed UK developer Rocket Lolly Games alongside UK consultant Ella Romanos in late 2015, with this, its debut, currently planned for a 2017 release.

Officially entitled 'The Rocky Horror Show Touch Me, it's being developed for mobile platforms and tablets, with the angle of what's it like to be an audience member of the musical show, which was first performed in 1973 and has since become a cult classic.

Everyone welcome

"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," commented Clark.

"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 70s; it is as relevant today as it was when it first launched.

"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."

You can get more information on the game as it becomes available on its website.
