Game Fuel (Tropical Smash) (previously known as Flavor #736) was one of 7 prototype flavors for DEWmocracy II, delivered to Dew Labs members for taste testing. 8 years later, it was released in the Fall of 2017 for a limited time to promote the upcoming video game Forza Motorsport 7 for Every60Seconds. Its companion flavor was Arctic Burst, a returning Slurpee flavor receiving a store release 11 years later.
This flavor, along with flavors 722, 286, 648, 231, 493, and 509, were shipped to Dew Labs members who were chosen based on their video submissions to the video website 12seconds.tv, and were shipped boxes of the seven prototype flavors. From the initial seven flavors, taste testers were asked to elect three final flavors for later release at retail stores. 736 eventually lost and was not released to stores.
On May 27th, 2017, two new Game Fuel flavors were leaked online. Flavor 736 returned as a Game Fuel flavor under the name "Tropical Smash", and was released alongside Arctic Burst, a returning Slurpee flavor as a regular soda received a store release. The flavors were distributed (sometime around the fall of 2017) to promote the video games Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Forza Motorsport 7.
The two flavors were officially released to stores on October 2017, and stayed on shelves until the end of the year, when the promotion ended.
Game Fuel (Tropical Smash) was a tropical punch flavored soda with a distinct pineapple overtone and was yellow-orange in color. Subtle tones of mango and orange are present.
