'Hunger Force' Got Game

March 26, 2007 12:00 AM

Apparently nothing can stop the "Aqua Teen Hunger Force." Two months after a marketing stunt foul-up for the Adult Swim show cost Cartoon Network's general manager his job and parent Turner Broadcasting $2 million, Midway Games said it is developing an interactive game based on the fast-food trio of heroes.

"Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am" is set at a golf club and mayhem no doubt ensues. No word on whether copies of the game are being quietly placed in locations around Boston.

Meanwhile, Cartoon Network has signed Buena Vista as the first advertiser in one of its online games. Users playing "Foster's Big Fat Awesome House Party" beginning today might notice posters on the house's walls for the films "Meet the Robinsons," "Ratatouille" and "Underdog."
