Windows PCs Get Desperate

If you can’t get enough of the goings-on on ABC’s hit television series Desperate Housewives from network broadcasts of episodes, iTunes, downloads, fan sites, reviews, shows, and an ever-increasing amount of peripheral merchandise, well, you’re all set now: Buena Vista Games has shipped Desperate Housewives: The Game for Windows PCs.

The game lets players assume the role of a new housewife and her family as they move into a house on the seemingly-perfect Wisteria Lane; through a 12-episode story, the character uncovers secrets from her past through interactions with her neighbors, laden wit the dark humor and drama which has made the television series such a hit. Players can interact with characters from the TV show as well as new game-specific characters, and be guided through it all by the voice of Brenda Strong, who reprises her role as deceased housewife Mary Alice Young and omniscient narrator. The game’s story was created by series writer Scott sanford Tobis.

“The global popularity and success of Desperate Housewives is unsurpassed and provided the perfect inspiration for a Windows PC game that captures the essence of the series,” said Graham Hopper, senior vice president and general manager, Buena Vista Games, in a release. “For the hours during the week between the Sunday night episode airings, Desperate Housewives: The Game is the ideal way for series fans to stay connected to the experience.”

As much as we’re in favor of anything which keeps Felicity Huffman in a steady paycheck…we’re kind of hoping there won’t be more spinoffs along these lines. Unless there’s a secret level which provides access to automatic weapons, grenade launchers, and maybe an electro-eviscerator or two. Maybe even just as a dream sequence. We can all have dreams, right?

Desperate Housewives: The Game is rated T for “Teen” by the ESRB, and carries a suggested retail price of $19.99.
