Elitist Brainwash: The Game – Kim Kardashian: Hollywood Review
Kim Kardashian, is currently one of the most famous people on earth. Yet, the root of her fame does not have any admirable traits for example: talent. With the current trend of celebrity games hitting the AppStore, it would only make sense for a big name celebrity like, Kim Kardashian to buy into having her own game. It would only make you curious, what would a Kim Kardashian game consist of? Lets find out:
– Mindlessly tap your way, through a game telling you what to do.
– WORK RETAIL to earn cash. At your job fold shirts, count cash, etc.
– Three different in-game purchase power ups (energy, money, stars), creates limits .
– Strong Materialism themes, example: people will like you if you buy nice things.
– Constantly enslaves you to Kim Kardashian’s approval & the approval of others.
– Provides false ideas and expectations for its target demographic.
– Become famous for literally doing nothing!
– GAME DOESNT WORK WITHOUT INTERNET CONNECTION
Being a twenty-four-year-old male, I definitely do not fit within the target demographic of this game. That being said, I tried to keep an open-mind whilst playing this game, but constant bombardment of elitism and materialism were actually a bit creepy. Your first encounter with Kim Kardashian is when you are closing the retail store you work at and Kim Kardashian insists you let her in. During this moment you get three choices: tell her the store is still open, freak out at the fact its Kim Kardashian or tell her you just closed. I chose to tell her the store just closed, but that didn’t have an effect, cause next thing you know you’re helping her to find a dress. This theme of the “Bow Down To Thee Kim Kardashian” is everywhere in this game, constantly seeking to gain her approval. Not only that the other characters in the game preach a theme of if you’re not famous you’re no-one. This along with a constant material messages like “getting new clothing, cars and homes can increase your star power for love and work”, are the basis of the story and gameplay. I use the term gameplay very generously, cause you just click on things, in a linear story, while the game tells you what to do. Overall, the impression the game gave me was: Bow down to Kim Kardashian, you’re nothing unless you’re famous, nice material things make you happy and people will like you. Oh also, if you don’t have internet then go fuuu-yourself.
The game has no purpose, bad gameplay, bad story, bad ideals & a bad message for the young demographic it is created for. IT STINKS.
