THQ locks down multi-year rights to Deepak Chopra games


It's not quite an EA-NFL-level blockbuster deal, but THQ has entered into a multi-year licensing agreement for exclusive video game rights to Deepak Chopra's teachings. The deal with rights holder Curious Pictures extends to pretty much every platform imaginable, including XBLA, PSN and WiiWare.

Clearly not meant for THQ's "core" catalog (though yogic ab-building minigames aren't necessarily off the table), the Deepak Chopra games will fit into the publisher's "Casual and Lifestyle Portfolio." Said THQ exec Martin Good, "THQ continues to expand its casual games portfolio and has grand plans to invigorate the lifestyle category with this game."

Dr. Chopra is the author of more than 55 books on "mind-body health, spirituality and peace." You probably won't be able to shoot things in his games, or even stomp on them.
