And Willow Pape is STILL the worst. Ugh.
If there's one thing Kim Kardashian is good at doing, it's taking a seemingly regular thing and making a buttload of money off of it. From reality television to a fucking coffee table book of selfies, Kardashian has a way of profiting off the inane. So it shouldn't be a surprise that her ever addictive and sensational mobile app Kim Kardashian: Hollywood has made a huge chunk of money. Via Daily Dot:
According to the Q314 earnings call report from Glu Mobile, the company that developed the game, her app made $43.4 million in Q3, accounting for more than half of the profits from the third quarter this year. It's more than 10 other Glu Mobile–owned app games combined.
Similar to Kardashian's (and Kanye West's) Vogue cover, the actual sales of the game did not meet the projected goal. Considering the game was expected to make $200 million by the end of the year, $43.4 million seems rather measly, but I promise it isn't. $200 million just seems ridiculously unrealistic. The game boasts 22.8 million installs and has racked up 1.2 billion sessions—and 214,174,992 dates.
And don't you worry. For those of you who are over Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, Kardashian mentioned she (yes, she herself, the app developer/engineer) is working on more apps, so hang tight, folks.
