Hey, did you guys know that Kim Kardashian has a new iPhone game called Kim Kardashian Hollywood? If so, we strongly urge you not to download it, lest you have a burning desire to spend an entire paycheck on more “energy” to finish photoshoots and club appearances faster just to climb your way up the “A list” of celebs a little more expediently.
We’ve actually tried Kim’s game, so we can say with some authority that it is actually kind of fun (in a mindless guilty pleasure way) and definitely addictive. In fact, we finally had to delete the app off our phones after a week of gameplay once we realized we were seriously waffling over whether to buy groceries or new outfits for our avatars.That’s why we’re actually not shocked to learn via The Hollywood Gossip that Kim’s new game in on track to earn up to $200 million in in-app purchases this year.
We’re not sure exactly how much of that money goes to Kim for lending her likeness and voice to the experience and how much goes into the pockets of Glu Games Inc. But one thing’s for sure: Kim Kardashian Hollywood is a major hit. In fact, if it does reach $200 million by the end of the year, it will not only surpass the top-earning “free” game of last year — The Simpsons: Tapped Out, which earned $100 million dollars in just over a year — it will actually lap it, and with far less time out on the market.
Say what you will about Kim Kardashian lacking talent, but it’s pretty clear she knows how to make a quick dollar!
