I had an interesting experience in the Disney booth at Buena Vista games. Since it was Disney I expected to run into Mickey Mouse and things like that, but instead I broke into someone's house, stole stuff to sell later, and got caught because I made too much noise. I decided to slap the woman who owns the house, but I was still able to lie my way out of it with a claim that I smelled a gas leak ... then to repay her kindness, I seduced her husband and ended up sleeping with him in a nice cut scene (behind a drawn curtain, of course).

This is Desperate Housewives: The Game-- written by by one of the writers for the series, so it has a lot of the same sort of plot twists as the show. It features the voice of the show's narrator (none of the actual actresses' voices, although they were able to use their likenesses). You play a housewife who just moved in, with a secret past that you're trying to keep hidden.

You can choose to be a nice housewife -- make the perfect bowl of spaghetti, host a dinner party -- or be really evil. There are a variety of endings depending on how you play the game. If you play through to the "nice" ending, everybody accepts you. If you go around slapping people and sleeping with other women's husbands ... well, they wouldn't tell me what happens if you're mean mean, except that it would be "significantly worse for you."

This will only be on the PC.
