PewDiePie, aka Felix Kjellberg, aka the biggest Let’s Player and most subscribed YouTuber, has revealed that the name of his official game made by indie studio Outerminds will be called PieDiePie: Legend of the Brofist in one of his videos. You can watch the announcement above.
PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist will be a 2D platform-action game in which you can play as PewDiePie or his partner Marzia Bisognin, aka CutiePie, as well as their two pugs Edgar and Maya. As you progress, you can unlock new abilities including the Brofist, which is what PewDiePie closes all of his videos with, and that clears the screen of enemies in the game. Abilities are unlocked with “Bro coins” collected around the levels.
Other YouTubers that collaborate with PieDiePie will appear across the game’s storyline, as well as a number of recurring characters that PewDiePie creates during his Let’s Play videos, such as Shannon the Shark and Stephano the small golden statue from Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
You progress through the levels on an overworld with different regions including an ice world and duck island. Each of these have different objectives that need to be completed in order to finish the level, so it won’t always be a case of running across the level as fast as possible. For example, in the level shown off in the video, a number of sharks have to be saved from the barrels that tied them up before you can complete the level.
The plan is have PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist out on PC, iOS, and Android by summer 2015. You can find out more about its development on the Outerminds website.
