Pridefest available globally on iOS, Android

Atari today announced that Pridefest, “an original social-sim game inspired by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community”, is available globally on iOS and Android.

“Pride is only one small portion of the diverse LGBTQ culture and community, but it is one centered on freedom of expression, the pursuit of equality, and shared celebration, said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer of Atari. “Pridefest was designed to celebrate progress the LGBTQ community has made toward equality while working to emulate the spirited and celebratory atmosphere of today’s real-world parades.

“It was that spirited atmosphere that especially drew us to the idea of Pride as an overarching theme and parades as the core gameplay mechanic. ”

Pridefest was launched in Australia and New Zealand ahead of this release. We were able to speak with Chesnais about the project at our local launch.
