Game Salute’s Chief Sales Officer James Takenaka was on hand at the recent GAMA Trade Show, and was kind enough to reveal a few insights about the company’s plans for its Princess Bride licensed games, and a couple of it’s latest and greatest releases.
The Princess Bride
Game Salute plans to release two different types of games based on The Princess Bride film. The first game will be a party-style game for large groups, called Princess Bride: Prepare to Die. Takenaka describes the idea behind the game:
"We are working on different kinds of party games, and what we call storybook games. Our first release is going to be Princess Bride: Prepare to Die. It’s kind of a party game format, but it’s kind of an Apples to Apples version of Princess Bride. You’ll be like, ‘Hello, my name is Arnold Schwarzenegger… you ate my pie, prepare to die!’ or something like that. And there will be a judge, who determines what the best mixture of the statement was."
Princess Bride: Prepare to Die is schedule to release at Gen Con.
The second Princess Bride game is intended to be a series of tabletop games that allow players to re-create scenes from the film:
"What we’re looking at doing is a bunch of mini games, where you can play just a mini game of a certain chapter in the story of the Princess Bride, or you can put all those little mini games together to play out the whole movie."
The Princess Bride: The Board Game is expected to release in time for the holiday season.
In addition to the forthcoming Princess Bride games, Game Salute recently released two new titles that Takenaka believes will become some of the company’s best-sellers. Both games were released on March 15th:
