If you're a parent and have a young child who likes the Pinkalicious children's book series, they might be happy to know that a game based on the Silverlicious
story will be hitting the Nintendo DS in March of 2012. The game will let players "set out on an adventure as Pinkalicious who has lost her ability to taste anything sweet". Players will help her regain her sweet tooth as they practice kindness, good manners, and helping others in need. Yeah, I'm about twenty years outside of this game's target age group, but it's nice to see games aimed at younger kids that's not all about shooting stuff and destroying everything in sight.
