Fabulous - Angela's Fashion Fever Hits the App Stores

Brand New Fashion Game From the Creators of Delicious

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - May 05, 2016) - RealNetworks' GameHouse division; one of the world's largest developers, publishers and distributors of casual games, has launched a new game series: Fabulous - Angela. For ten years GameHouse has been releasing new seasons of its popular restaurant game series, Delicious. The game has been downloaded over 20 million times. Due to continuing requests from their fans, the developers were inspired to extend their portfolio with another popular casual gaming genre: fashion.

A fashion game that gives players a Sex & the City feeling!
In contrast to Delicious, which has a storyline around food & family, their new brand, Fabulous, relates to fashion & friendship. The main character, Fabulous Angela, is Delicious Emily's slightly rebellious sister who had already made some appearances in the Delicious game series. It's Angela's ultimate dream to become a well-known fashion designer. The creators wanted the entire game to have a true "Sex & the City vibe." In terms of gameplay GameHouse's developers had to discover many possibilities in order to create this vibe. For instance they needed to come up with lots of new products, dress designs, and hip locations that express the fashion feeling. Hector Padilla, Fabulous Studio Director, about producing Fashion Fever:

"The biggest challenge with making a game about fashion, was remaining true to what our players already love about Delicious. With cooking it is so obvious how you can prepare many recipes with different ingredients. Yet with fashion we've had the challenge to create new engaging gameplay with specific items of clothing and accessories."

GameHouse's developers first tested the fashion game concept in a 4-level mini-game: Fabulous - Angela's Sweet Revenge. Fans and professionals showed their excitement by giving it a 4.5 star rating in the app stores as well as a nomination for the Best Casual Entertainment Game at the Dutch Game Awards. Hence, a 90-level sequel was the most logical next step.

The story behind Angela's first full game, Fabulous - Angela's Fashion Fever, begins with Angela being picked for the fashion design contest of the century. She revels in a world of glamorous parties, celebrities, and fancy hotels. But in the famous fashion industry, nothing is what it seems and she'll have to show her strength to uphold herself. Players will travel the world through 90 levels, design sensational dresses, and complete many exciting challenges.

Fabulous facts

  • Players can enjoy 61 story levels and 29 challenges.
  • Fans give Fabulous a 4.5 star rating on average.
  • Fabulous - Angela's Sweet Revenge was nominated for the Dutch Game Awards.
  • In the first quarter after releasing Fabulous Angela's mini-game, the Facebook fan base has grown by 165% from 7.800 to 21.000 fans. Today the game has nearly 30.000 fans!
