Good god almighty. You can thank the Hollywood Reporter for breaking the news on what is one of the weirdest creative unifications in gaming.
Master P, the new-album-per-month rapper and Seth Green, the creator of Robot Chicken, are slated to work on a hip-hop themed role-playing game called “Playing the Industry.” The goal of the game is to work your way up to elite status in a variety of roles, be it a hip-hop mogul or a star athlete. The creators are already seeing the experience as more like The Sims, rather than like … I don’t know, Mass Effect?
Apparently, the group making the game hopes to expand the brand into other avenues like movies, TV and clothing. Sure. Why not?
