Make stalking professional athletes a little more fun with Venus Williams' newest downloadable casual game, Venus: The Case of the Grand Slam Queen, which covers all aspects of stardom, from being "hounded" by creeps to fantastic fashion shows!
What sounds like a pitch for another casual point and click adventure game, this one with Venus Williams' likeness, starts off a little morbid: "Step into Venus's world and help her win another Grand Slam championship while she's being hounded by an unknown stalker. Solve the mystery by unlocking clues and playing exciting Hidden Object games. Get an insider's view on Venus's life and passions, which include tennis, interior and fashion design, and dogs..."
The Case of the Grand Slam Queen, developed by Action Games and published by Target Entertainment Properties, looks mostly stalker and violence free, judging by the game's screen shots. The so-called "stalker" may wind up being—spoiler alert!—someone desperate to steal Venus' fashion ideas.
Still, can we file the stalking of female tennis pros a plot point still too soon?
Williams is no stranger to games, having appeared in just about every version of Sega's Virtua Tennis series and recently having signed on to act as pitchwoman for EA Sports Active 2.
