Casual games developer and publisher Legacy InteractiveÂ® today announced a licensing agreement with CBS Consumer Products that will expand their growing roster of TV-licensed games. Legacy will develop a video game based on the popular CBS drama series Ghost Whisperer.
Available in early 2010, Ghost Whisperer: Shadowlands will debut on the PC and include characters and themes from the hit television series. Players will take on the role of Melinda Gordon, a young woman living in Grandview, who has inherited the gift of being able to see and communicate with the dead. These earthbound spirits have unfinished business in our world preventing them from “crossing over” into the light. While trying to live as normal a life as possible with her paramedic husband, Jim, and as an owner of the antiques shop, Same As it Never Was, Melinda helps ghosts find resolution and pass over to the other side.
With its stories penned by Emmy award-winning television writer Lance Gentile, Ghost Whisperer: Shadowlands combines light adventure and hidden object-style game play where players need to help the recently departed move on to the afterlife and provide closure to loved ones left behind. Gamers must collect objects for their inventory to solve challenging puzzles while unraveling the mysteries of five enthralling stories with more than 30 hauntingly beautiful environments.
â€œLegacy Interactive is pleased to work with CBS Consumer Products to bring Ghost Whisperer to the gaming world,â€ said Ariella Lehrer, President and CEO of Legacy Interactive. â€œGhost Whisperer has an incredible and enthusiastic fan base and we will strive mightily to exceed their expectations.â€
