The Grateful Dead Video Game Announced

(Gibson) The Grateful Dead are going from counter culture legends to video game heroes. The famous band are going to be part of a new video game, according to the title's developer, Curious Sense. The game, which will feature the Dead's studio music, live work, art and more, might be out by summer.

"We can't wait for everyone check out the fun new toys we are building," the band's longtime archivist, David Lemieux, told the Wall Street Journal. Rhino Entertainment, the overseer of the Dead's intellectual property, has entered into an agreement to ensure that everything in the game will be authentic. Plus, the band's surviving members have given their approval.

So what will the game be like? Curious Sense founder Adam Blumenthal has yet to reveal the basic idea of the game, although he said what it won't be. "There's no collecting of LSD as you move around the parking lot," he said. The game may launch online before becoming a game for specific gaming platforms, such as the Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation 3 or Microsoft Xbox 360. more on this story
