I love Ghostbusters
with a white hot passion which burns from the centre of my being and permeates cleanly through into almost every aspect of my life. What parts of me aren't devoted to remembering and glorifying The Secret of Monkey Island
are used to love Ghostbusters
. Everything else is a secondary concern, even breathing.
Which is why I can freely admit that I squealed like a little girl when I heard that Vivendi had confirmed a new Ghostbusters
came in development.
According to Joystiq
, the game will be written by Harold Ramis and Dan Ackroyd, who both starred in and wrote both the films. Bill Murray will also be lending his likeness and voice to the game, reuniting Murray with Ramis for the first time since the pair wrote and starred in Groundhog Day
Vivendi has said that they spent 'tens of millions
' on the license for the game and is determined to make it work. Variety
has picked up some of the details to, confirming that the game will have co-op and multiplayer modes and bagging the first piece of game artwork (on the right).
Platform and release date is still unknown, but it's a safe bet to say that it'll be a multiplatform release and is expected for a Fall '08 release. That puts it near to the release for Fallout 3
, so I may have to book some time off for next Autumn.
Hopeful about how the game will turn out or are you a big ol' cynic? Let us know in the forums
