Majesco Sets Up Real Estate on the DS
A place for all your stuff
Developed by Majesco's new development studio in Santa Monica, Our House will allow players to build and decorate their own dream home. They won't just be taking the role of buyer, though. Players will also act as contractors, hiring out work to furnish other houses and then using those earnings to finance their own personal home.
Players will choose work from a job board and then renovate kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms for a number of strange homeowners. Gameplay will utilize the stylus in over a 100 unique mini-games including laying flooring, hanging cabinets, stripping wallpaper, arranging furniture and more.
"We are incredibly excited about the Our House franchise and this extension of it. Both DS and Wii versions leverage the innovative controls of each system to create fun, addictive games with a perennially popular theme," said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco. "We are particularly proud that this is among the first titles to be developed by Majesco Studios whose core focus is on creating unique IP and technology with a mass market appeal."
"The central building mechanic of Our House is a perfect fit for the Touch Screen since the stylus functions as a universal improvement tool," said Bill Petro, Vice President of Internal Development and Studio Head for Majesco Studios Santa Monica. "This unique, do-it-yourself concept lets players become architect, builder, interior designer and home-owner simultaneously."
