We reported Steven Spielberg’s growing interest in gaming at E3, and now the title of the game blocks game he revealed at the convention has slithered out. It is now referred to as called Boom Blox, according to a schedule for the upcoming Game Developers conference in San Francisco.

Here’s what we learned about Boom Blox at E3:

  • The game will be centered around moving and building blocks and is influenced by games like Tetris and the infamous board game Jenga.
  • The blocks interact with each other based on a real physics model.
  • There are 20 different block types.
  • Co-Op play will be available.
  • Players can create character that interact with the blocks in one of four different themes: Western, Haunted House, Tiki, and Medieval.
  • The game will give the chance for a lot of user generated content by providing an editor which will allow you to make your own blocks and block set-ups.
  • It’s hard to say “Boom Blox” 3 times fast without messing up.

The game is scheduled for release on the Wii in March 2008. Whether this is the final title is anyone’s guess, but we’ll keep you posted.
