THQ readies Deepak Chopra's Leela game

Techstination feature for Monday, July 25, 2011

He is a physician and best selling author.   And soon, Deepak Chopra will have a video game to his credit.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   THQ and the game studio Curious Pictures have been working with Deepak Chopra to create Deepak Chopra’s Leela  for the Xbox Kinect and Nintendo Wii.   Producer Lewis Kofskey….

“The idea behind the game is to give the player the experience of what it feels like to meditate.  We believe that play can be a very meditative and almost spiritual experience and we’ve designed an experience that has all of the great fun of gameplay and the challenges of gameplay, but at the same time helps people tap into their ability to be happy, healthy in daily life.”

It is a game unlike any other.   The downside is it isn’t due to arrive in stores until November 11th.  That’s 11-11-11.   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
