Beyoncé finally reaches the final frontier of cultural superstardom: getting her own video game.
We all know Beyoncé deserved a bit more than just the Grammys for Best Music Video and Best Urban Contemporary Album last Sunday, but hey, it’s not like Adele got a free web game out of the deal. Well, there’s this, but I don’t think it’s officially affiliated.
Lemonade Rage is a new game from a small team of developers, and lets you play as Queen B in the universe of her “Hold Up” music video. As Bey, you take on “haterz,” “Illuminati conspiracists,” and, of course, that ancient enemy of street fighters everywhere: cars. Check out some screenshots below:
The whole thing is soundtracked by an appropriately-8 bit cover of “Hold Up”, naturally. Go forth and slay, and play Lemonade Rage here.
