Orson Scott Card and Chair Entertainment (the developers behind Undertow) just announced today that they're collaborating on a project to bring sci-fi novel Ender's Game into the video game world. Geeky fun!

Newsweek's N'Gai Croal confirmed that Chair Entertainment will begin developing Ender's Game sometime later this year and that the gameplay will not be focused on the entire novel, but instead will be more focused on the Battle Room. Croal also confirmed that Chair will be developing the game as a digital distribution title for release on services like the Xbox Live Arcade. A fully geeked out press release can be read after the break.
