"Lost. Lost. Lost."
"Lost what?"
"I've lost my marbles."

Gamer fans of the show
Lost got some good news yesterday: Ubisoft and Touchstone have joined forces to make a game based on the series for both consoles and PCs.

Yes, yes, I know: licensed games have the habit of sucking eggs. However, this title is set to be developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the development house behind such games as
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, King Kong, and Beyond Good & Evil.

However, this is not the first game to be based on the show: the series already has a bunch of alternate reality games on the net

Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that the game lives up to the show's name.
which many fans of the show are using to unravel much of the series's mysteries. Exactly what the game is going to be like has yet to be revealed, but Ubisoft's press release claims that it will be used to tell "new interactive stories within the 'Lost' universe."


  • Just letting you all know, I will be getting this. I've already got various the DVDs, the calendar, the C4 book, I'm playing the ARG and I've even got the (slightly crappy) theme for my phone.

  • A lot of people will be getting this game, even if it's crappy. That's what happens when a show has so many hardcore fans; Even if the game is bad, everyone will want to get it.

  • Again: it very well might be a good game based on the development studio helming the project
