HBO files trademark for True Blood game

With True Blood character likenesses (hey Jason and Tara!) already showing up in Left 4 Dead 2 this year, it certainly took HBO long enough to wake up and smell the O+. Superannuation has noted a US trademark filing for a video game based on the down-home vampire series, which should make fangbangers everywhere happy.

Of course, there's no word of what the game -- if one ever comes to sunlight -- will entail. HBO's never really sunk its teeth into major video game development before. Anyone remember those Sopranos games?
