'The Office' TV Series Becomes Video Game

First it was on the BBC, then The Office came across the pond. Now the hit television series will become a computer game. Game developer Mumbo Jumbo says its version will maintain the show's quirky humor with audio clips from the series and familiar rivalries. But the video characters will be bobble heads — a nod to the novelty item on the desk of Assistant Regional Manager Dwight Schrute.
