Grateful Dead Video Game in the Works
A Grateful Dead video game is in the works.
Independent game developer Curious Sense has been given the go-ahead to use any of the band's archival materials -- including live recordings, album art and video or film footage -- for the project, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Rhino Entertainment set up the deal, which stipulates that the game cannot have any references to drugs.
Developers are aiming for a summer release date for the game, which is intended to draw new fans to the band. Curious Sense founder Adam Blumenthal told the Journal, "They [the surviving band members and Rhino] really want the Dead to be part of a music curriculum that starts with kids getting into Led Zeppelin in the 8th grade."
