Yes, it's another thread about a video game show. BUT... but this is a little different. Those of you who know me on this board probably know that I'm from Studio Happy Chicken, the only foreign run gravure idol studio in Japan. The folks here at the studio are big retro games fans, and so we're combining what we love with what we do and I want to get everyone's opinions.
The show is called GAME GIRLS GO! and features Japanese bikini models playing retro video games. Think Game Center but with attractive, scantily clad players who are not good at games what so ever. At the beginning of each episode we meet the contestant who will then be given a retro game and a series of 3 challenges. If they are able to complete the in-game challenges within a set period of time they win a prize! If they do not, then they have to undergo a "humiliation" or "punishment". Each episode will have a 20 min run time.
The games featured will all be Japanese releases and the show will primarily focus on 8-bit and 16-bit games, with some overflow into 32-bit; but due to the nature of the show, arcade style games work best, I think. Nothing will be emulated, all the games will be running on their original hardware, and we'll feature a little about the the history of the machine and the game itself.
The end product is planned to be shown on a gaming website... we haven't made any deals yet or even approached anyone yet because we're just starting pre-production.
What sites would you like to see this appear on?
Additionally, after one season has "aired", we'll release GAME GIRLS GO! on DVD and Blu-Ray (as well as iTunes download and the like) with additional gravure style content, game related, of course.
What games would you like to see us feature?
We are really looking forward to hearing the ASSEMBlergames collective voice on this.
