How weird is that?? LOL! But when you’re a smoker dying (pun intended) to quit the nasty habit, any help would do =) Even if it’s in the unlikely form of a new game for the Nintendo DS! The weird game is based on books written by anti-smoking guru Allen Carr, and videogame firm Ubisoft (formerly of demonic rabbits fame) is developing a title to “coach” smokers away from cigarettes.
There are apparently 15 anti-smoking games to choose from, including one “set in a disco where a cigarette-shaped monster tries to pull the gamer outside for a smoke,” reported Register Hardware. To save themselves, players must draw lines to connect themselves to fellow virtual dancers. Weird! LOL! How effective the games will be remains to be seen. But hey, it just might work! =)
