Desperate Housewives Announced

Buena Vista Games Announces 'Desperate Housewives' PC Game Based on ABC-Touchstone Television's Top-Rated, Golden Globe Award-Winning Series is the press release announcing a television tie-in lifestyle sim that, like its inspiration, will examine the tawdry side of suburbia. The first screenshots can be found on 3D Gamers, and here's word:

BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 24, 2006--Buena Vista Games, Inc. (BVG), the interactive entertainment arm of The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS - News), today announced it will publish Desperate Housewives, a lifestyle simulation PC game based on the top-rated, Golden Globe-winning ABC-TV series, produced by Touchstone Television. In the Desperate Housewives game, players take on the role of a new housewife who moves into Wisteria Lane and unlocks the delicious scandals hidden in the seemingly "perfect" neighborhood.

So am I the only one here thinking that you could get quite a decent Bladerunner (the game) style adventure out of this concept? Randomly select/generate 'scandals' and mess around with who is involved, so that each time you play you have to figure it all out anew. Some smart design to get the A.I. working appropriately, and you've got the basis of a completely decent game on your hands (if not one that is likely to appeal to most of us here).

Will they do something like that? I doubt it. The show is hardly devoid of game potential, though.
