Rocket Lolly Games

It was great when it first began… we were regular Frankie Fans. That was over when Ella Romanos met Andy Leighton, music producer of The Rocky Horror Show.

In 2015 they set up Rocket Lolly Games Ltd specifically to make games based on the license. What drives them however, is to share the spirit of Rocky (RaRaRah) with as wide an audience as possible and still encapsulate the joy of audience participation that is quintessential for the show.
