In what’s surely one of the early signs of the end times, Candy Crush is soon to be a live action game show over on CBS. Yes, the mobile game. A TV show. With contestants. And prizes. And some giant, interactive game boards. And candy, apparently.
CBS isn’t divulging a lot of specifics at this point about how the game will work, or what teams will win – prizes? cash? – after they crush all the candy.
Instead, the network is only saying that teams of two people will compete over the course of an hour, using their wits and physical agility to progress on “enormous, interactive game boards featuring next generation technology.” Whatever that means.
A host has not been yet been announced, either.
However, for Candy Crush maker King, this is a notable licensing deal for their mobile gaming franchise, whose top titles, Candy Crush Saga and the newer Candy Crush Soda Saga, today still see an average of 18 billion game rounds played per month, and are two of the top 10 grossing mobile games in the U.S. Read more at TechCrunch.
