That's what she said, right? The Hollywood Reporter [1] is reporting that Publisher MumboJumbo has teamed up with Universal Pictures Digital Platforms Group to develop mass-market games based on the NBC series "The Office."

The first "Office" game, which will be out next year, will be a task-management game like "Diner Dash." Players will get to try out roles like Jim Halpert and interact with such other characters as Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer, who is famous on geeksugar for her racy Wired Magazine cover [1]) and of course, the infamous Michael Scott (Steve Carell).

The game will be released as a PC game sold at retail and available as an online digital download. Next year, the plan is to create additional games based on "The Office" license beginning with portable experiences for the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable.
