Description

In Desperate Housewives: The Game, based on the TV series of the same name, you are a new amnesiac housewife on Wisteria Lane. As you explore your new neighborhood you will discover all-new stories and secrets. Get the truth behind some delicious scandals - and reveal some shocking secrets of your own.

Much like The Sims the game starts off by letting you pick your main character (who is always female). You are stuck with a teenage son and husband for which there are a few customizing options. Mini-activities include cooking, gardening, and Texas Hold'em poker with the other wives. The game features an original script from Desperate Housewives writer Scott Sanford. Brenda Strong reprises her role as narrator Mary Alice Young as you play through 12 'episodes' in the life of your family.
