Spike Jonzes’ Where The Wild Things Are game tie-in announced
If you’ve been wondering what off-beat film director Spike Jonze has been up to since getting inside John Malkovich’s head (and creating fictional twins for Nicolas Cage for that matter), his new film “Where The Wild Things Are” is scheduled for a winter release.
An off-kilter children’s tale with magical companions and bizarre imagery, Warner Bros. have announced that a game tie-in will also accompany the movie this December.
Developed by Amaze Entertainment, a Foundation 9 studio, players will take on the role of Max as he lands on the island of the Wild Things only to find the land and its inhabitants are on the brink of destruction. Max will befriend the “fearsome but loveable” creatures and embark on a quest to become the “King of All Wild Things.”
Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment states:
â€œWhere the Wild Things Are is a beloved childrenâ€™s stories and we are excited to deliver an immersive interactive experience based on and inspired by the feature film from Spike Jonze. Through their action-filled adventure, players will team-up with the Wild Things â€“ each with their own unique skills or special talents â€“ learn valuable new abilities and work together to find a way to safety.â€
This one sounds like one of those games both parents and kids might enjoy playing together. What say you oh responsible parent gamers? Will you be going where The Wild Things Are with your children this winter?
