Glu Mobile, a leading global developer and publisher of free-to-play games for smartphone and tablet devices, today announced the availability of Nicki Minaj: The Empire on the App Store and Google Play. Featuring exclusive voiceovers and video messages from Nicki Minaj herself, the app offers users a multi-faceted digital experience including engaging story mode, robust chat rooms, and the innovative ability to write and record original music.
The story line in The Empire largely follows the blueprint laid out by other celebrity games: You’re a nobody who, by some miraculous stroke of luck, befriends the titular celebrity. She takes you under her wing, helping you record your first single and giving you tips on how to promote it. The goal is to earn song sales and grow your number of fans. All the while, the game tries to inculcate values. In the Jenner game, it was the importance of friendship; in The Empire, it’s the power of believing in yourself.
The best part of the game, and what sets it apart from Kim K.’s version, is the integration of the music. Although Glu has released games for other pop stars like Britney Spears and Katy Perry, it’s the Nicki Minaj installment that has put music at the forefront. On a basic level, the game’s soundtrack consists of Minaj’s most recognizable songs in instrumental form, which fans will certainly appreciate.
Most impressively, Nicki Minaj: The Empire incorporates a song-sharing social network called the Beatbook. Think of it as the game’s version of Soundcloud for emerging rappers: You get to pick a professional-sounding beat and record your own rhymes.
Whether anyone will actually become a breakout rap star because of Nicki Minaj: The Empire is unclear, but if Minaj keeps her promise of showcasing the best rapper of the app each month, she might indeed find some talent among her fans. That potential exposure is solid motivation for aspiring rappers to start sharing their works in the app. Think of it as American Idol on a smaller but easier-to-access stage. And if the thrill of potential stardom isn’t fun enough for you, then perhaps the sly anaconda jokes will have to do. Moreover, z2u.com provides Cheap Nicki Minaj The Empire Accounts for players.
