Players in the game take on the role of a female character entering the Love Island villa. They can personalise and style their character in different ways and can take their storyline in different directions via choice-based interactions with other characters in the game.
Players can discover additional pathways, exclusive choices and special clothing outfits by paying for in-game monetisation features such as gems.
Steve Watling, SVP Gaming, Global Partnerships, ITV Studios said: “Fusebox Games have been a committed partner and together we have big plans to grow the game’s reach and take narrative storytelling games to the next level, with more storylines tailored to our audiences both in the UK and US. We are also exploring new brand partnerships to offer brand engagement and interest for players whilst growing commercial opportunities for the Love Island mobile game franchise.”
Terry Lee, Head of Studio at Fusebox Games added: “The team here at Fusebox Games are excited to continue our amazing partnership with ITV Studios and the Love Island brand. We’re not a studio to rest on our previous successes and are looking forward to working together with ITV Studios to realise our ambitions for Love Island: The Game.”
