Gogii Games Attacks with Shannon TweedApr. 04, 2012, Moncton, NB,
Los Angeles, CA. March 6, 2012 - Gogii Games is proud to announce the upcoming launch of a new mobile game titled Shannon Tweed: Attack of the Groupies!
The game features actress and reality star, Shannon Tweed, in a challenging and often comedic homage to the downsides of fame. Appearing in more than 60 films, Tweed has also had in a long list of television shows including The United States of Tara, SpongeBob SquarePants, Married with Children, and Frasier. For the past six years, Tweed has been a regular fixture in the home of millions, sharing the screen with her family in A&E’s hit reality television series Gene Simmons: Family Jewels.
The launch of Shannon’s game gives fans the opportunity to watch her family come to life as virtual characters. Shannon adds, “It’s incredible to be involved in determining the style and the attitude of the characters. Gogii has been very collaborative on that, which is one of the things I’ve really enjoyed about working with them.”
Shannon’s invested herself in the process of designing the game, brainstorming potential story ideas and played a lead role in the creation of her own character. “It’s been a lot of fun learning about the industry. It’s taking off so fast now. Gene and I are really excited to get the final product out so our fans can enjoy it,” says Tweed.
George Donovan, CEO and founder of Gogii Games, decided to approach Shannon with the idea for a potential partnership only two minutes after their initial introduction. “Meeting Shannon was completely random, and she was so interesting to speak to, her personality is so vibrant. I knew her life story tied into the type of game wanted to build, so I asked her if she’d ever considered being in a video game.”
As design of the game neared completion, Donovan visited the family and made a surprise appearance on Gene Simmons: Family Jewels to demo the game. The episode featuring the game will air early in the upcoming season. Donovan says, “It was an incredible experience, Shannon and her family have been fantastic. We really leveraged her humor into the game, taking her stories as inspiration in creating these larger than life groupie villains. It is as fun and interactive as she is, as well as allowing our customers to learn even more about her lifestyle and family.”
Shannon Tweed: Attack of the Groupies offers fans the opportunity to battle it out with the groupie hordes who are desperately trying to gain access into life and love. Shannon enlists the help of a few trusty sidekicks, daughter Sophie Tweed-Simmons and her sister Tracy Tweed who are in game as focal characters. Featuring stereotypical groupies inspired by Tweed’s stories, the game allows players to unlock exclusive, rarely seen content of the life of the starlet.
