Good news for all the Desperate Housewives-loving hardcore gamers out there.

An interactive videogame based on the hit ABC series is in the works from Buena Vista Games and on target for a September release, the company said Friday.

Players take on the role of a new housewife who moves to Wisteria Lane and must interact with her neighbors in order to unlock the dark secrets of the seemingly idyllic neighborhood.

"As fans of the show would expect, the game is loaded with gossip, betrayal, murder and sex--you know, all the things women like," the game's producer, Mary Schuyler, told USA Today.

The script for the game was written by Scott Sanford Tobis, one of the show's writers, and features a series of self-contained story lines.

"I want players to feel like they've found a bonus episode of the show," Tobis told USA Today. "In fact, it's more like eight separate TV episodes; I wrote about 13,000 lines of dialogue for this game."

Players can select their housewife's look and attire, before hitting the virtual town to hang out with Susan, Bree, Lynette, Gabrielle and Edie.

"It's a great opportunity to allow our viewers the chance to be a part of the world of Desperate Housewives," series creator Marc Cherry said in a statement.

The videogame, which will be timed to the launch of the third season, is just the latest addition to the Desperate franchise, which already includes an upcoming fragrance, a clothing line, a board game and a cookbook, all available in the show's very own online store.

Meanwhile, the "real" Wisteria Lane is also prepping for a new addition.

Kyle MacLachlan will be joining the cast for a series of episodes, playing a single dentist with a thing for Susan (Teri Hatcher), TV Guide reports.

The Sex and the City alum makes his first appearance Apr. 16 and could potentially return next season.

"It depends how he plays," executive producer Tom Spezialy told TV Guide. "I would think he would fit in nicely in our world."
