Princess Bride Game? As You Wish

210px-the_princess_bride_first_edition.jpgWorldwide Biggies is bringing the 1987 film “The Princess Bride” out as a video game title in an exclusive deal with Act III Licensing.

The game is aimed at the casual market, expecially women who grew up with the film adaptation of the book by William Goldman which was in turn an abridgment of S. Morgenstern’s original political satire. Rob Reiner’s “The Princess Bride” film starred Cary Elwes, Robin Wright Penn and Wallace Shawn.

Worldwide Biggies CEO Albie Hecht said a teaser version of True Love and High Adventure — The Official Princess Bride Game will be packaged with the upcoming “The Princess Bride 20th Anniversary DVD.” The full game is set for release as an online download in the spring of 2008 though there are no plans for retail distribution at this time.

The article doesn’t mention whether any of the original film actors will return to voice parts for the game. Sadly Andre the Giant won’t be reprising his role as Fezzik. He passed away in 1993.

This could be interesting. The Princess Bride is my favorite movie right next to Star Wars. It’s inconceivable that they would finally make a game.
