My, how the gaming industry has expanded. It seems even talk show host and former actress Tyra Banks is considering making her own video game.

Ty Loke LLC, Banks' licensing company, recently filed a trademark for a number of Tyra-branded merchandise (via superannuation). They're trademarking hair curlers, books, magazines, and other stuff you might expect to find her name on. However, the application also mentions "hand held joy stick units for playing video games; video game cartridges, video game discs, video game tape cassettes, video game software" and so forth.

Usual disclaimer: this doesn't mean that a game's actually in development. They're just making sure that they've got the right to do so and no one else does. Still, a video game based off Tyra Banks would be interesting, in a "this is not targeting my demographic at all" sort of way.
