Anyone who has read Alan Moore's masterpiece of a comic will agree with me when I say this, how the hell can you make Watchmen into a game?  I know most people will say point and click adventure game but I highly doubt it.  Man... I wonder what it will be like?  "Play Hooded Justice as you battle level after level of bad guys and come to terms with your homosexuality!" or "Play Rorsachs as you take out the rage from your abusive childhood on criminals!".

God, I felt physical pain while I was reading that.

A rape simulator featuring The Comedian?  Maybe a SimCity-esque Mars construction project featuring Doctor Manhattan?  Ozymandias' workout program done Bemani style?  The possibilities are endless...endlessly horrible. :P

I mean, the only thing that might, and I do mean might, work as a game is something with the Black Freighter.  But that's it, and that isn't even really related.

I'm imagining a boring interactive fiction game with mini-game-esque elements myself. In any case, I suspect it will never come out. Or maybe the entire thing will be based on the pirate comic micro-narrative and play just like Uncharted Waters.

This is one of the saddest things I've ever read online. I bet Alan Moore is vomiting right about now.

I'll believe it when I see it. (And then not buy it. If that needed to be said.) If they haven't managed to massacre it in film-form yet...

Halo Jones might make a pretty good game. ;-)
