Apple Goes to the Game Shows
9:35 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Apple has posted a new article in their gaming section which takes a look at two upcoming MacSoft gameshow-themed titles: Jeopardy! 2 and Wheel of Fortune 2. Both are really just 2nd editions of the popular 'value priced' originals, though more has changed than just adding new content. The games have also been tweaked to improve the opponent AI, and include video interviews of contestants and pre-show screening questions. Here's a clip with a quote from MacSoft's Al Shilling:
“New video content has been added in the form of interviews with many people behind the scenes at both shows,” adds MacSoft product manager Al Schilling. “Plus — and I think this is just the coolest feature — both games include the entrance exams that potential contestants take to try and qualify for the shows.” We're assuming "getting it right" doesn't mean memorizing the answers, since there are more than enough to keep the replayability of the games high. Head over now to check out the scoop on both games, and look for them to be released by MacSoft in the not-too-distant future.
Apple Game Show Madness
Schilling, who is a self-described game show aficionado, says that he “aced the exam for Wheel of Fortune, but I still haven’t passed the Jeopardy! exam. I’m going to keep trying until I get it right, though.”
