Digital Mystery Tour


Just when you wonder if the Beatles can continue to appeal to new generations, something like this comes along.
Digital Mystery Tour: The Beatles’ First Video Game
If you’ve always bragged that you could play the drum part in “Helter Skelter” better than Ringo Starr, you may soon get your chance to prove it in a video game based on the music of the Beatles. The game developer Harmonix and the publisher MTV Games, creators of the music game Rock Band, announced in a conference call on Thursday that they had entered into a partnership with the Beatles’ Apple Corps Ltd. to produce an interactive game that would offer players “an experiential journey” through the Fab Four’s music and history, according to Alex Rigopulos, chief executive of Harmonix. Paul McCartney and Mr. Starr, as well as Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono, have all approved the as-yet-untitled game. Giles Martin, son of the Beatles’ producer, George Martin, will serve as the project’s music producer.

If anything could make me by a video game console, this would be it.

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
