Taylor Swift Is Getting Her Own Video Game

It's about goddamn time.

In the wake of its insane success with Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, Glu Mobile has announced its in the early stages of creating a Taylor Swift video game.

"We realize that Taylor and her global fan base expect a new and highly differentiated mobile gaming experience," Niccolo de Masi, CEO Of Glu, said. "Glu is equally committed to designing never before seen gameplay elements that utilize Taylor's unique creativity. Accordingly, we will spend the required development time to ensure this innovation is achieved."

It's fun to take the piss out of a Kim Kardashian or Taylor Swift game but the reality: these games are incredibly popular (Kim Kardashian: Hollywood has made over US$40 million. Not only are they popular but, by all accounts, they're actually really well-made.

I am fully going to play this Taylor Swift video game. Someone make Carly Rae Jepsen one please.

    So you're saying the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate?

      OK, I think we're done here.

      Lock the comments!

    Now is not the time to mention I just watched that one Black Mirror about the reality music show.

    Right.

    Never in my Wildest Dreams... There's a Blank Space on my shelf now reserved for the game, once it's Mine.

    (At the risk of being unpopular, I really do love me some T-swizzle...)

    This isn't related to that sex machine from the other day is it?

      While both are designed and manufactured with the goal of providing some kind of pleasure for the consumer, the sex machine might actually succeed.

    Honestly I was let down by the Kim Kardashian game. limited customisation, linear story, and while that story was amazing (I mean we all knew it would be), I never really felt like I was in control of events. Plus, there's just a blackened husk where my value as a member of the human race used to be. Anyone know when they're patching that.

      No more development on Human 1.0. If you bricked your soul you're stuck.

      I do hear Uber are working on a replacment.

    Did anyone else think she had her middle finger raised in the article image?

      Yes for a moment.
      But it's also not the most flattering image.
      It's that "my god, i gotta poop, like NOW but there's no bathrooms here" look.

    Would the Carly Rae Jepsen game be about desperately trying to make a second hit?

      Yeah and the Rhianna one would be about avoiding it..

      #heyoooo

        Oh i just got that one. Well done hahaha.

      RLRT: Her latest album is probably the best pop album of last year.

      I remember hearing somewhere that she used to be a pastry chef... so maybe a version of Cook, Serve, Delicious?

    I cant wait to see what the in game currency looks like, I look forward to spending 100 dollars to get the best value for my Swizzle Bucks.

    Also,

    Not only are they popular but, by all accounts, they’re actually really well-made.

    You mean its good at tricking you into spending hundreds of dollars to skip its terrible grindy gameplay?

    So every level will be complaining about one or more of her ex's, gotcha. This being a mobile game, I guess the microtransactions unlock harsher insults.

    Where's my Bjork video game?

    I want to throw my panties in the fire and make music!

      Life is Bjork game. To win you must scream into a old boot you found at the bottom of the ocean.

      I think Bjork was the secret developer behind that dad shower simulator game

    I'd probably get it if it came with this.

    I hope it's like shaq-fu then I can finally punch Taylor Swift.

    damn, was hoping for SingStar style Taylor swift game with a singing campaign, hopes destroyed

    Never know, we might get an awesome post-apocalyptic fps with space marines, unicorns and dinosaurs??

    this is so wrong, this is just going to exploit all the young girls obsessed with her for an easy buck. how about releasing actual bloody games instead of this nickel and dime poker machine noise crap. when people as big as her and kartrashian do it it's bad for the whole industry because it makes it okay to do.

    Ah T-Swizzle, I love thee. But this will suck large quantities of dogs nuts.

      Rumor has it, thats the third level of the game...

    And chachi is getting his own sick bag, yeeech
