You might have read over at Joystiq
is working on a video game based on NBC's The Office
. The game is set to feature the characters from the show depicted as bobblehead dolls. Players will be challenged to complete jobs and pull pranks around the office. Currently, the game is slated to appear on the DS, PSP, and PC. According to Variety
, the game won't be developed for new-gen consoles because of its relative simplicity. XBLArcade
begs to differ, noting that MumboJumbo's deal includes the option to create the title for Xbox Live Arcade.
MumboJumbo recently released Luxor 2
on XBLA, so they definitely have experience with the platform. Whether or not The Office
will actually make an appearance on Live Arcade remains only a rumor at this point.
Now, if we could just get The Office
to make an appearance on Video Marketplace, we'd really
be getting somewhere.
