Google and Nintendo hatch out new search engine game

Nintendo and Google have apparently teamed up to develop a game based around a search engine.

The game, which is being designed for the Wii, strikes us as about as interesting as watching paint dry.

Dubbed And-Kensaku, players battle to produce top search engine results.

Players compete by attempting to guess the popular web search terms. The player with the most correct guesses wins.

The game uses Google’s search engine, and while you can play it offline with some 10,000 pre-stored words and phrases. If you connect the game online and you’ll be able to download additional challenges based off current Google search trends.

We would have thought it was a no brainer. All you have to do to win is type the word “sex” and you will have the highest scoring search everytime.

Apparently it is a bit more complicated than that. There are a dozen variant modes and supports up to four player simultaneous play. Apparently this is a game the whole family can play or something that can be set up at drunken parties assuming that a Wii user has more than two friends.
