Where the Wild Things Are...the Videogame

Techstination feature for Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Where the Wild Things Are.... The videogame. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. The widely anticipated movie is on the way, and now Warner Brothers Interactive is out with a video game version of Where the Wild Things Are. Producer Josh Fleming says it is based more on the book ..than the story line of the movie....

"We definitely are aware that there's a lot of interest in the story based on the movie coming out. But we really went after trying to capture the imagination of the book. So you play as Max and you arrive on the island and we expand the story from there. So it goes beyond the book and the movie."
Tell us what went into this ...
"Definitely a lot of it was visualization to capture the look and feel of the Wild Things. And so a lot of character designs and trying to get just a fun feel of the imagination."

That will delight new generations. The book by Maurice Sendak was first published in 1963. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
