Legacy Interactive (Pretty in Pink, The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes) has announced a deal with CBS Consumer Products to develop a PC game based on the popular CBS television drama series Ghost Whisperer.
Available in early 2010, Ghost Whisperer: Shadowlands will let players take on the role of Melinda Gordon, a young woman living in Grandview who has inherited the gift of being able to see and communicate with the dead. These earthbound spirits have unfinished business in our world that prevents them from "crossing over" into the light. While trying to live as normal a life as possible with her paramedic husband, Jim, and as an owner of the antiques shop, Same As it Never Was, Melinda helps ghosts find resolution and pass over to the other side.
With its stories penned by Emmy award-winning television writer Lance Gentile, Ghost Whisperer: Shadowlands combines light adventure and hidden object-style game play where players need to help the recently departed move on to the afterlife and provide closure to loved ones left behind. Gamers must collect objects for their inventory to solve challenging puzzles while unraveling the mysteries of five enthralling stories with more than 30 hauntingly beautiful environments.
"Ghost Whisperer has an incredible and enthusiastic fan base and we will strive mightily to exceed their expectations," said Legacy Interactive President and CEO Ariella Lehrer in a prepared statement.
