Bulb Boy developer Bulbware partners with YouTuber PewDiePie for new mobile game Poopdie

Bulb Boy developer Bulbware has partnered with YouTube celebrity Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg to co-create a new mobile game called Poopdie.

Few details on the game are available beyond the fact that it will be launched on iOS and Android. Bulbware will handle the actual development of the title from its studio in Krakow, while Kjellberg will provide creative input.

As the name suggests, Poopdie largely focuses on scatological humour. Its main character, the titular Poopdie, apparently creates creatures made of excrement which the player will likely control.

Getting around

Kjellberg previously signed a multi-game deal with DoubleMoose, a studio established by former Coffee Stain Studios game designer Armin Ibrisagic. The developer has so far launched PC early access title Animal Super Squad, which Kjellberg played on his YouTube channel.

PewDiePie has leant his likeness to other mobile games such as Tuber Simulator and Legend of the Brofist. He has also used his position as an influencer for games such as Seriously's Best Fiends.
