'Watchmen' Video Game To Be Set In 1970s on MTV News has hands-on impressions of a downloadable episodic Watchmen game in the works at Danish developer Deadline Games that serves as a prequel for the upcoming comic book movie. A brief story on Variety describes plans to release one episode of the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 game around the theatrical release of the film next March and another in conjunction with the DVD release, but more episodes could be produced if the series proves successful. The action game features the team of Rorschach and Nite Owl set in the alternate version of the 1970s as depicted in the Watchmen, and while Alan Moore is not involved in the project, WBIE has enlisted comic writer and Watchmen editor Len Wein to write the story. A blurb about the game on GameSpot gives a feel for the plot, and here's a bit from the MTV story:
