The most popular YouTube star, Pewdiepie, has recently released a game called ‘Pewdiepie’s Tuber Simulator.’ Felix Kjellberg is a Swedish gaming Youtuber who had started his YouTube channel in 2010 and since has only become more and more famous. Although he did get quite a bit of hate throughout the years, that didn’t stop him from being his fabulous self. Why so much hate on Pewdiepie? We have an article about this if you want to read about it. He currently lives in Brighton, England with his girlfriend, Marzia Bisognin. This is not his first time releasing a game in collaboration with Outerminds Inc, we also had ‘Pewdiepie: Legend of the Brofist’ which was an epic, 2D adventure game. The only seemingly downside to the game was it was paid and not very affordable for everyone, however, Pewdiepie’s Tuber Simulator is totally free!
So what does this app revolve around? Well, the Youtuber said that he couldn’t get the copyright to call the app ‘Pewdiepie’s Youtuber Simulator’ but worked around it instead with ‘Tuber’. The game starts off with a character in a small, empty room who decides to make videos (hence becoming a Youtuber) and you have to progress your way to being a big Youtuber. It’s a time sensitive game, so you can be making a video or waiting for a package to arrive while you leave the application and it informs you to come back by sending your phone a notification. Or you can play the ‘Puggle’ mini-game while waiting for a package you bought to arrive. The currency in this game are views, so you buy things with views, and you can boost the shipping by playing the mini-game which you also play each round for views. There is also a feature called “The Knowledge Tree” where you basically can upgrade your knowledge on a subject or upgrade to generate more views and subscribers. You also have new achievements everyday which reward you with money, subscribers, views or knowledge.
I, myself, have downloaded this app two days ago for the sake of this article and I have to say, this is an amazing game. It drained limited amount of battery considering I played it for four hours straight. Very addicting. You can also add friends and visit their rooms. And although it hasn’t been activated yet, there is a feature to where you can join groups. The only downside to this game is, as it is very addicting, it may lead a path to anti-sociability. Overall, this game is great and very entertaining, definitely a must-download.
