RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis is a mobile puzzle-adventure game released for the iOS and Android mobile operating systems in 2013. The player character is a customizable drag queen that is able to change outfits, hair, and makeup styling as they progress through the game. The player encounters real-world drag stars from the titular RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise as they progress through different levels, with the 2.0 update (2014) of the game expanding the roster of drag queens and puzzle options. The game environments and interfaces are heavily stylized in the camp and over-the-top manner for which RuPaul’s Drag Race is often celebrated.
