<i>Princess Bride</i> game conceivable

Cherished family adventure film set to see a downloadable interactive adaptation next spring.

According to the film industry trade mag, Worldwide Biggies is making a game based on Rob Reiner's much-beloved 1987 adventure film, The Princess Bride. Details on gameplay are nonexistent, but Worldwide Biggies CEO Albie Hecht told the trade group the game would appeal to the casual audience and would be download-only upon its release. The production company is not entirely unfamiliar with the world of games, as it runs a fantasy celebrity newsmakers league and produced Spike TV's Video Game Awards.

True Love and High Adventure--The Official Princess Bride Game is set for release next spring, with a teaser trailer for it appearing on the 20th anniversary DVD for The Princess Bride, set for release November 13.
