The folks at Atari have unveiled a brand new iOS application called Pridefest, which the developer-publisher describes as a “new social-sim game for the LGBT community.”
In the app, which is due to arrive on the App Store later this year, iOS device owners are charged with developing and building their very own pride festival. “Your goal is to make the people in the city happy with your colorful parade and its many activities,” PocketGamer explains, adding:
To this end, you’ll be able to customise parade flotillas, build attractions, throw decorations around, and employ mascots.
All of the buildings in the city (shops, theatres, and so on) can be filled with festival content to attract more people. You’re also able to drop vendors and entertainment stands along the parade route to score more points.
There are also puzzles in the app, and solving these reportedly unlocks brand new parade items and bonuses; gamers can also create their own customizable avatars in the application which feature unique “body types, clothes, and accessories.”
Being a social game, Pridefest allows iOS device owners to check on the cities and pride parades created by their friends, too.
Recently, Atari teamed-up with Denny’s to bring a selection of classic (and calorific) mini-games to our iOS devices, and before this, Haunted House – the 1981 Atari classic – launched for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Pridefest is expected to make an appearance on the App Store later this year; as of this writing, details concerning the app’s price have yet to be revealed.
