Level Up writes: "A mock-up of the Kaplan SAT Prep DS, under development by Aspyr Media
Oh, Brain Age: what have you wrought?
Later today, Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions (a division of Kaplan, which is in turn owned by Newsweek's own parent company, The Washington Post Company) will announce that it is partnering with Aspyr Media to develop an as-yet-untitled SAT test prep game for the Nintendo DS. Versions for Windows-based PCs and Macs are also in development. According to Aspyr co-founder Ted Staloch, Aspyr reached out to Kaplan Test Prep last summer to see if the two companies might be able to work together on a game that would hit the sweet spot of Brain Age fans and students studying for the SAT. "This is not a study break," Staloch told us last week during a phone interview. 'This is a way to prepare for the test.'"
