"While the game is free to play, the goal is to get users hooked on in-app purchases such as clothing or a burst of energy needed for traipsing through Hollywood."

So...

um...

...

Its basically a replacement for Second Life.

Also I'm going to assume that the horrible people you're talking about are the people whose job it is to make games meticulously (and psychologically) designed to hook and then exploit players, and not the people who have been hooked and exploited by them? Right?

It's the Lohan Life game I'd rather play. Being a snobby pretty girl in Hollywood? Boring. but virtually driving drunk through filming sets and ruining movies? That sounds like fun. And you can make users pay a dollar for each virtual bottle of booze.

And ten dollars for the lawyer to get you off scotfree :)

Need an antidote to all the Celebrity hoohaa?

“Celebrity Blow Your Tits Off”, an interactive art build on one of the LEA art sims is open all hours until the end of July.

Hamlet Au

(I tweaked the title to be less snarky and more VR-y.)

Cicadetta Stillwater

I wish I could honestly ask, "Who?" Alas, I am only left with "Why?"

@Shockwave: That would be darkly hilarious. Doesn't have to be just Lindsay Lohan, either. Call it a Former Child Star game, and go to town. XD

I am holding out for Andy Kaufman's Virtual Life. I hear the wrestling simulation will be great with the Rift.

So many more interesting celebrities, like the ones who believe in wacky things or have had hair raising lifestyles. One should make one with parody names, so as to avoid lawsuits and huge endorsement deals.

Oculus rift? That game would be rather slow, right. I mean, she isn't an extreme sports fan is she? I don't know, so maybe I am wrong and it is an action game as well as management/choice sort of gam.

And,there are other VR headsets available now and the Google Cardboard is a low cost one indeed! Just cardboard cut out, some software and a mobile phone/tablet! IF we had those flexible samsungs out, and they cost $50, I bet those would be popular. Yeah, latency and lag but this would be no wild sort of game. The parody one may be though.
