Dead Video Game

A North Carolina video game company has gotten the green light to develop a game based on the Grateful Dead. Curious Sense received clearance to dig into the decades deep archive of Dead audio and video to put together a total immersion gaming experience revolving around the music of the band.  The game is expected to have a Facebook launch before migration to Dead.net, with game platforms and mobile apps to follow.  Early indications are that everything is on the table, which could result in multiple layers that include features that allow players to remix tracks as they collect game credits.  The graphics are bound to be great, but any recreational drug inspired enhancements will have to be supplied by players.  Approval to access the archive and get the licensing deal done with the band apparently hinged on the game not including any drug references. Bummer.
