I did some emailing last night to see if I could get a confirmation of the Bob Ross title being real instead of an April Fool’s joke, and I am happy to report that I have a confirmation of the title being true! Check out the email below.
Thank you guys for mentioning the license announcement, we really appreciate it!
My indie game development group, which consists of students, indies and professionals in the game industry, AGFRAG Entertainment Group secured a worldwide exclusive licensing agreement with Bob Ross Inc. just before the Game Developers Conference took place.
We are talking with various companies and plan to make an announcement near E3 regarding which platform(s) the game will be developed on first and maybe a surprise.
I personally loved watching Bob Ross growing up and I enjoyed watching how easily he created his paintings. We want to translate that same feeling of watching the TV show into playing a Bob Ross’ game.
Whether you are a 8 year old child, or 65 year old grandma, we want you to be able to pick up the game to create and play to your heart’s content.
The Nintendo DS and Nintendo Revolution are PERFECT platforms for what we have in mind! We like the way Nintendo carves their own path of innovation and creativity and we strive to do the same.
The press release is NOT a joke, but the side effect of people thinking it is might help us get noticed.
Thank you all very much,
AGFRAG Entertainment Group
Bob Ross fans rejoice! I think this may very well be the best Revo news we have heard yet! That’s right…I love Bob Ross that much!
*UPDATE* - I just received another email from a member of Bob Ross Co. stating…
At this time, plans to produce a Bob Ross Video Game are in preliminary stages; we’ll post more information on our website as details become available.
Wow, a story I thought for sure was a rumor has turned out to be true…twice! I could not be happier.
