Just when you thought you had it all figured out, Ubisoft announce that LOST is to be spliced up into a video game.
"Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced a long-term worldwide licensing agreement with Touchstone Television to develop and publish a video game based on the Emmy Award-winning television series ‘Lost.’ Developed by Ubisoft’s award-winning Montréal studio and scheduled to hit retail shelves worldwide in 2007, the game will be offered for home and portable consoles as well as PCs."
LOST, the global hit tv show has grown and grown into one of the most talked about shows on TV today. After Oceanic Air flight 815 tore apart in mid-air and crashed on a seemingly deserted Pacific island, its survivors were forced to find inner strength they never knew they had in order to survive. The series engages viewers by keeping them very much in the dark about mysterious secrets contained on the island.
"Many of us on ‘Lost’ have been hardcore gamers for years and the chance to work with Ubisoft, a company behind some of our favourite titles, has excited us to no end," said ‘Lost’ producer Bryan Burk. "With the ability to tell new interactive stories within the ‘Lost’ universe, we’re giddy to be developing a game that, once completed, will be as engaging and fun to play as it is to create."
The LOST season 2 finale is set to air this week in the US, whilst back home in the the UK the second series is just getting underway.
Rumours are that John has already started work on the game, programming from the computer inside the hatch.
