Designing Fake Video Games For "Her"

Fascinating interview with the designers of the two video games in the imagined-near-future world of Spike Jonze's "Her". I'd pay to play "Perfect Mom". Nintendo should option this stuff.

Spike wrote all the Perfect Mom stuff, including the messages that pop up (“You’re Failing Your Children!”). He was really open to suggestions though, and we came up with some visual gags he liked, like the kid dumping the cereal on his head or the HUD in the corner of the screen that monitors the kids' love for their mom.
