Want to experience talking to ghosts for yourself?
While CBS series Ghost Whisperer is currently on hiatus en route to its September 25 return, the network's Consumer Products group recently inked a deal with video game developer Legacy Interactive to create a video game based on the supernatural drama.
Set to be called Ghost Whisperer: Shadowlands, the game will have players take on the role of the series' central character Melinda Gordon, played by Jennifer Love-Hewitt, who has the ability to talk to spirits. The "light adventure" will feature puzzle-solving elements within five different stories to be told across 30 environments.
The focus of the game, as with the real Ghost Whisperer, is to help lost souls return to the afterlife by resolving whatever unfinished business they may have that prevents them from crossing over, so to speak. Players must also collect objects for their inventory to solve challenging puzzles.
Ghost Whisperer: Shadowlands is set for an early 2010 release, while Ghost Whisperer the television series returns to CBS for its fifth season on September 25.
According to Legacy president and chief executive Ariella Lehrer said, "Legacy Interactive is pleased to work with CBS Consumer Products to bring Ghost Whisperer to the gaming world ... Ghost Whisperer has an incredible and enthusiastic fan base and we will strive mightily to exceed their expectations."
