On Thursday the world’s biggest YouTube star with over 48 million subscribers launched his all-new game, Tuber Simulator. Instantly jumping to the top of the download charts on iTunes and the Google Play Store. Now it’s available for millions of fans, here’s what you need to know.
It’s pretty simple really. PewDiePie has been the number one person on YouTube for years, and this game gives regular people the chance to beat him. Essentially a simulation game to create your own YouTube channel, decorate the streaming room and more.
Tuber Simulator is made by the creators of the wildly popular Goat Simulator, which is a perfect match. It’s also made by PewDiePie himself and Revelmode game studios. Here’s what you need to know about the game, problems with the servers overloaded and more.
At the moment Tuber simulator is having a few problems. We’re seeing reports that users can’t create an account. Making a YouTube channels fails and hangs, not to mention other problems. This is likely due to the 48 million subscribers the YouTuber told to go download and play his game.
Server problems aside the game has already jumped to #2 on iTunes as the top game, and is extremely popular already. Fans are saying it’s extremely addictive, fun, and love the real life voice-overs by PewDiePie himself. The creators have already taken to Twitter and confirmed the server issues will be resolved shortly.
We are almost done fixing the Error 99 when creating your channel. Thanks for your patience.
Those who want to create their own YouTube channel, make videos, and gain fame can do it all right here. Of course it isn’t real, and just a fun simulation. PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator is free to download on both Android and iPhone, but has in-app purchases. Lots of them.
After installation users will be able to create a fake YouTube account and get started. Slowly making videos and earning subscribers until they top the king himself. You have a long ways to go though, as he has 48 million subscribers.
Features & Gameplay
As we said above, the game is all about creating your own virtual YouTube channel and making fun videos. It starts out pretty slow, but has lots of fun moments with PewDiePie’s voice himself instructing you through the tutorial.
Once the server issues are fixed users can create an account, make a YouTube channel and start making their very own videos. Gain views, get subscribers and keep making more videos. Once you get popular, the ad revenue will start rolling in.
Once YouTuber’s start making money they can buy better equipment, room decorations, clothing, pets, furniture and more. Not to mention buying all of that with in-app purchases. There are a lot of in-app purchases, so use caution. We’d recommend parents use a password on the App Store.
The overall gameplay and style is similar to the learn-to-be-famous title Kim Kardashian:Hollywood. With a lot of in-app purchases and more. Of course there’s a big difference, not to mention the fun and playful 8-bit style graphics of Tuber.
Gamers can expect quests and challenges, not to mention voting for your favorite room or channel.
For the millions of fans that watch his videos day in and day out, his Puggle dog is a regular sighting. We’ve been told there are small mini-games inside of the regular title. More specifically a “Puggle Mini-Game” that can be found, unlocked and enjoyed.
Fans all over YouTube and on Twitter have voiced complaints with the game, but it has only been available for a few days. The servers are getting hammered by millions of users, and they should be fixed in the near future.
As we mentioned above, there also seems to be a problem with creating a YouTube account at the time of writing this, which should be resolved any moment now. Right now it’s sort of barebones and limited in options. We can expect updates to arrive in the near future with more features, content and other changes.
It’s worth mentioning that this isn’t his first game. Last year the popular title PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist has short success at the top of the download charts. As the game continues to improve and get better we’ll update with more details, tips, and more to get the most out of Tuber Simulator.
