sent me the following information relating to Michelle's computer
game. Interesting! :) (Thanks Inna!)
I agree that the
Michelle Kwan game is neat. I have a copy myself. I heard though
that Semilogic (the company that made Michelle Kwan) is coming out
with Michelle Kwan Online. It will be like the PC version except
we'll be able to compete online and it'll have a chat program that's
actually a LOT better than anything available to figure skaters
and figure skating fans right now.
I understand that's
coming (unofficially anyway) in July and officially in December.
this week's ad for CompUSA, there was an ad for Michelle's
Figure Skating Game. A picture
of the box, plus the price of $29.99 was listed. I bought the
game yesterday, but I haven't tried putting it on my computer yet.
Reading the instructions, though, it looks really interesting!

requirements include a Pentium 200 MHz, 32 MB, and a DirectDraw compatible
video card. Read more about it in the following articles:

Get ready to spend more time on your computer later this year. Electronic
Arts will be releasing a figure skating game in time for Christmas
"starring" Michelle! Players can either skate as Michelle or themselves
by importing a photo into the game. The game allows players to create
their own choreographed routines, design their own costumes, choose
their music, select arenas from around the world and create scrapbooks
of their skating and email highlights to friends. Electronic Arts
is the world's largest interactive entertainment software company,
and produce successful games such as SimCity. EA's Supervising Producer,
Mitzi McGilvray, said, "We couldn't think of a better role model to
have as we launch our first game for girls. We are honored to work
with Michelle Kwan, who is a worldwide icon, respected and admired
by millions of fans throughout the world." The game is targeted for
girls from ages 8 to 13 (the first time EA is targeting that demographic),
but this is one 19 year old that will be buying it! Check out the
following articles about this great deal (plus more in the Articles
about Michelle section):
