Vid game is next chapter for fairy tale


Worldwide Biggies is bringing the 1987 film "The Princess Bride" to video games in an exclusive deal with Act III Licensing.

Worldwide Biggies CEO Albie Hecht said a teaser version of the game will be on the upcoming "The Princess Bride 20th Anniversary DVD," with the full game, "True Love and High Adventure — The Official Princess Bride Game," set for release as an online download in the spring.

Hecht added there are no plans for retail distribution, but he said the game has a strong chance to tap into the burgeoning casual gaming audience. And that includes women, many of whom grew up as fans of the Rob Reiner movie that starred Cary Elwes, Robin Wright Penn and Wallace Shawn.
