Epic Rights has partnered with game developer Sproing for new mobile game, KISS Rock City, which is now available to download for free from the App Store and from Google Play worldwide.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, jointly stated, “KISS is very excited to be partnering with Sproing to bring the KISS Army and game enthusiasts such an entertaining mobile game. The gameplay rocks, we know you’ll love it!”

Developed in 'close collaboration' with the band, KISS Rock City will see players work their way up from playing the local bar circuit to the international spotlight, play along with original KISS hits and reach fame and fortune through skill, business deals and the help of their KISS mentors.

“For a musician like myself a dream came true working together with KISS to create the first Rock’n’Roll stardom adventure game for mobile devices,” said Harald Riegler, CEO at Sproing. “The game features some highly addictive music gameplay, and is a game that fans of rock music and rock games will love!”

“KISS has done such an amazing job building not only an incredible band known for their iconic songs and legendary stage performances, but also building the biggest rock merch brand in the industry. We are excited to see KISS extended into a highly-engaging mobile game that fans will love,” added Lisa Streff, EVP Global Licensing at Epic Rights.
