RALEIGH, N.C. (CBS Charlotte) – “Hey Lucy … we’re going to be a video game.”
The iconic television show “I Love Lucy” is coming back as an interactive game on Facebook.
According to Reuters, Entertainment Games is recreating the vivacious redhead and the rest of the “I Love Lucy” gang, including Fred, Ethel, and Desi, as an episodic series that will be released in March.
The game’s palette will be black-and-white but will mix in footage from the original show.
The first game episode will be based on “Job Switching,” where Lucy famously struggled at her job at the chocolate factory.
The “I Love Lucy” game will be released as one of Entertainment Games Retro World’s series.
Retro Games specializes in games meant for older players. In one release entitled “The Owl Files,” players can interact with Marilyn Monroe who is playing a spy.
