Electronic Arts officially announced Steven Spielberg's first video game yesterday. Strangely, it's a puzzle game, which sounds uncharacteristically un-epic for the director; shouldn't he be making the new Halo? But Boom Blox, a Nintendo Wii game that Spielberg conceived two years ago, actually seems worth more than an hour of play, at least for those of us old enough to be amused by the sheer number of things flying around and exploding. After the jump, the game trailer and requisite punchline.
Of course, it's still inferior to the original dark version by Stanley Kubrick.
