Dangerous High School Girls Game Nominated By Writer's Guild
7:20 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Mousechief has received a Writer's Guild of America nomination in the Best Writing in a Videogame category for its casual title, Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble!. The nomination puts the small developer in competition with companies like Lucasarts, Bethesda Softworks, and EA Games. Developed on a Mac, Dangerous High School Girls In Trouble! is described as an "easily learned game of whimsically 'naughty' mini-games, literary satire, and adventurous role-playing."

From the Mousechief website:

Each year, the Writers Guild of America recognizes great writing in the entertainment industry. Their nascent award for videogames allows writers from a new craft to be recognized alongside established media professionals, such as this year's nominees, including Tina Fey, Woody Alan, Bill Maher, and the Cohen brothers.

Mousechief, Co. faces competition from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed by Lucasarts, Fallout 3 by Bethesda Softworks, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 by EA Games, and Tomb Raider: Underworld by Eidos Interactive. What sets us apart from the competition is that Mousechief is a one-person company plus a few part-time contractors. Can two obscure writers, working for scant pay other than freedom, withstand the financial and P.R. might of game industry giants?
The WGA awards will be held on February 7th, 2008 simultaneously in Los Angeles and New York. Check out the links below for more information.
