Get ready for Space Camp! (From Activision)


Activision today announced that it's bringing Space Camp to both the Wii and DS this June. In Space Camp, players assume the role of an astronaut in training and participate in several minigames missions on the moon. How an astronaut still in training wound up on the moon is anybody's guess. The Wii version also features a co-operative mode for two players and a four player party mode.

Forget about the game though. It pales in comparison to Space Camp's potential as a hilarious practical joke on children. One example would go something like this:

1. Tell child you are taking him / her to Space Camp. Be sure to really sell this.
2. Watch child become incredibly excited and happy.
3. Give the child a copy of Space Camp.
4. Point (optional) and Laugh.
