Maybe that was an inappropriate headline given the concept of this game involves the family, but it just seems kooky that Spielberg would jump on the videogame bandwagon, and on the Wii no less (although he did alter many of the scenes in E.T. to make them more "family friendly", so I guess it was to be expected). At any rate, film director Steven Spielberg has thrown his creative hat in the videogame ring with a Wii title published through Electronic Arts called Boom Blox.

According to the press release (which can be viewed here) Boom Blox will offer players "action-packed interactive activities that takes Wii play to a new level of creativity and fun with single player, co-op, and versus gameplay. Players can explore the visceral gameplayperfectly suited for the Wiis interactivitythat keeps them destroying their way through brain-twisting challenges." which in other words means this is just another Wii party game - and here I thought that dark page in the Wii's life was over.

From Steven Spielberg:
"I am a gamer myself, and I really wanted to create a video game that I could play with my kids," said Steven Spielberg. "BOOM BLOX features an enormous amount of fun challenges and cool scenarios for your kids to solve or for you to master together."
To be fair, the game is being developed under EA's casual gaming division, so it at least knows where its market lies, just weird that Spielberg wouldn't want to create the most epic Sci Fi title this side of all the best Sci Fi titles ever made.
