Illustration for article titled New Watchmen Mobile Game Makes Alan Moore Cry

We've already told you about the Watchmen video game, but little did we know that that cynical cash-in was only the start. May I interest you in the Watchmen Cell Phone Game?


Glu Mobile - who are already working with Warner Bros to create mobile games based on Superman, Bugs Bunny and The Dark Knight - announced earlier this week their plans to create a game based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' groundbreaking 1980s series - or, more truthfully, based on Zack Snyder's movie adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' groundbreaking 1980s series.


Details of the game aren't available yet, but we're not hopeful based on Glu's summary of Watchmen:

Watchmen is known for its unconventional take on the lives of super heroes, depicting them as real people, confronting the trials and tribulations of everyday human life.

Is it just me, or does that sound more like a quirky sitcom than the existential political murder mystery cold war parable of the original?
