Video games publisher Majesco has signed a deal with HarperCollins subsidiary William Morrow to create a game based on the bestselling book series, The Daring Book for Girls.

The title will reach Nintendo DS and Wii formats later this year and lets players 'virtually experience activities straight from the popular book'.

Players can pick from one of several character models with a wide range of ethnicities and features. As they play, girls will earn gear and collectibles while having fun in spy missions, cave exploration, freeze tag, double dutch, basketball, arts and crafts.

Players will also learn educational facts about famous women in history and attempt to earn six Daring Girl badges such as Girl Lore, World Knowledge and Life Skills.

"The Daring Book for Girls series, including the new books - The Double Daring Book for Girls - has entertained and inspired millions of girls, and we look forward to the game furthering the reach of this well loved property," said SVP and publisher of HarperCollins imprint William Morrow, Liate Stelhik.
