I've always wanted to join the Amazing Race, and this is probably the closest chance I'll ever get. Ludia Inc. has announced that they got the rights to develop CBS' reality TV show as a video game.
Unfortunately, the press release didn't mention much details about the game, much less what platforms they're going to be released on. Right now, it's fair game for everyone.
We can somewhat glean the concept of what this Amazing Race game is going to be like though. See this from the press release:
The Amazing Race video game teams players up in pairs for an unforgettable journey across exotic locations and continents in a race against time and other teams. Players work to find each checkpoint and take on dozens of frantic challenges and tasks as they navigate Detours, Roadblocks and other unpredictable game elements from the show. Working together strategically throughout the game is essential as each team tries to discover hidden clues that are crucial to getting them to the Pit Stop first- and one step closer to ultimate victory at the check-in mat.
For some reason, I have Lost Vikings in my head. Ok wait, that's too ancient of a game. Hah! LittleBigPlanet-type of co-op, perhaps?
Now, as some of you may remember, Canada-based studio Ludia was also responsible for the Hell's Kitchen video game (as published by Ubisoft). For now, The Amazing Race is planned to be released alongside season 14 of the show.
So, any one of you want to be my partner for the race? Dude, move it, let's go!
