Mean Girls is coming to mobile devices as a choose-your-own-adventure game developed by Pocket Gems, with stories and characters closely linked to the 2004 cult classic. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Pictures is on board as consultants, and the game is being written by Kirsten Smith, one of the narrative forces behind movies like 10 Things I Hate About You, Legally Blonde, and She's the Man.
Several games have already been set in the Mean Girls universe — Paramount was involved in the creation of 2009's puzzle game Mean Girls DS, and So Much Drama Studios released tower defence trifle Mean Girls: The Game for iOS earlier this year. But those games lacked any real storytelling muscle, a gap Pocket Gems is looking to address through their work with Paramount and Smith. The free-to-play game is scheduled for release later this year, meaning it could render 2015's October 3rd celebration a little more fetch.
