    A video game is currently being developed based on the music of...Grateful Dead. The hippies are going digital and game-style. The game developer, Curios Sense, is using archived materials from the Dead, including live recordings and album artwork. So the Dead will remain alive for quite some time, thanks to this video game. There are no further details on the game's plot and challenges, but the developers did tell The Wall Street Journal that the Dead's surviving members are happy to have the music be a part of the game, which is due for release this summer.

    Would you play a video game based on the music of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead?
