Sept. 29 marks the release of PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator, the second game to star YouTube creator Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg. That, however, is not the only game the Swedish star is working on. He has also announced a deal between his Revelmode network and DoubleMoose, the game studio run by Goat Simulator developer Armin Ibrisagic.
In Goat Simulator, players live the life of—you guessed it—a goat. By crashing into objects, your goat can rack up points, while causing havoc in the process. After the game’s 2014 launch, it gained steam thanks to YouTube’s Let’s Play community, where it became a popular choice. Creators like PewDiePie shared the game and its humorous situations with their fans, and millions of sales soon followed.
The deal between DoubleMoose and Revelmode will result in more games from Ibrisagic, with PewDiePie providing some creative input. The resulting titles, all of which will aim to generate laughs, will likely be tailor-made for the Let’s Play community and the creators within the Revelmode network in particular; beyond PewDiePie, other Revelmode partners include top gamers like Markiplier and Jacksepticeye as well as recent additions like Cryaotic and KickthePJ.
“It’s all HAPPENING for Revelmode—with more to come,” said PewDiePie in a press release. “Working with Armin is a match made in heaven. His vision and sense of humor fits Revelmode perfectly. We’re proud and excited to have him on board and can’t wait to share what we’ll create together! ALSO, I’m so excited Tuber Simulator is here! Guiz de Pessemier and the Outerminds team are so amazing to work with—check out this fresh pup today!”
Revelmode launched in January 2016 thanks to a pact between PewDiePie and his partner network, Maker Studios. It claims 100 million followers across all social platforms.
