Carmen Sandiego Coming to Consoles
Bam Entertainment announced today that they have signed an agreement with Riverdeep to bring Carmen Sandiego to multiple consoles during the 2003 holiday season. The series is known for its educational yet fun basis, allowing players to use fundamental searching abilities, as they attempt to find Ms. Sandiego.
"We are excited to team up with Bam to bring Carmen Sandiego to the video gaming world," said Eric Stone, Riverdeep's executive vice president and general manager for Learning Company products. "Her mysterious and clever nature has intrigued kids for many years. She's not an evil villain, but she is certainly a prankster, and a character we feel will transfer very well to gaming platforms."
"Bam is constantly looking for new ways to deliver solid content to the expanding, all-ages gaming audience, and Carmen Sandiego is a natural fit," said Bernard Stolar, president and chief operating officer of Bam Entertainment. "Carmen Sandiego is a well-established brand, standing the test of time and various line extensions beyond her PC roots. I believe it is the perfect property to bring to gaming consoles and a new generation of players."
