The lights are on
Game companies and studios love April Fools' Day. It's the one time of the year we get to see creative juices flow in other areas. Over the course of the day we'll be updating this post with all the pranks and jokes that are (hopefully) fake.
Feel free to post any jokes you see in the comments below or send us a news tip.

Valve Announces Ricochet 2
Square Enix Reveals Chocolate Dimension in Quantum Conundrum
Square Enix Inc. the publisher of SquarE Enix interactive entertainment products in the Americas, and developer Airtight Games today revealed that they’ve been able to fold another dimension into the first person environmental puzzle game Quantum Conundrum. This time, however, instead of harnessing the laws of physics, the new dimension will manipulate the fundamental laws of chemistry.
In chocolate dimension, players will have new options available as they work their way through Quadwrangle Manor:
· Devour your way through obstacles!
· Melt-down and re-solidify objects!
· Stick to the floor, the walls, & the ceiling!
· Discover all-new (chocolate) Easter eggs!
“People are probably wondering, ‘Chocolate dimension? What’s that all about?’,” said Kim Swift, creative director at Airtight Games. “Chocolate is fun! Chocolate has all sorts of amazing properties! Who doesn’t love chocolate? And besides that, it looks a lot more appetizing than hummus dimension.”
Players will get their first taste of chocolate dimension when the game launches later this summer.

Sometimes I really wish more of these April Fool's headlines were real. I would love Assassins' Creed Kinect, as long as I embarrassed myself playing it in private. . .
Lol, GameInformer, you really need to give credit to NeoGaf, always stealing their topics.
Ah, I love April Fools Day! I love 8-Bit Google Maps, Minecraft Creeps (Mojang should do that for real), Assassin's Creed for Kinect, and most of all, Sega Bass Fishing of the Dead! You missed Mars Effect (Notch) and Overgrowth Villages (Wolfire, but that's indie).
Assassin's Creed post is awesome.
Oh I want the creeps and the Saints Row ones to be real. Although they might actually do the saints Row one. It really wouldn't surprise me.
It'd be easy to mistake the Saints Row one for being real. XD
Something tells me that the Saint's Row stuff might actually be legit. And since I don't like neither Peeps nor Creepers, I don't think I'd like Creeps.
I like the minecraft idea
Rockstar was to lazy to even give us a fake release date. -.-
You guys didn't you hear?!?! Valve announced Half Life 3 today...... APRIL FOOLSSS
Why are all the spam comments back? I DON'T WANT ANY *** GUCCI!
can we all just say adult swim had the best joke
Bass Fishing of the Dead seems like a real game idea at this point.
The Assassin's Creed for Kinect video is one of the finniest things I have seen in a while. I loved that girl running around the living room to make Desmond run around in the Animus. I do the same thing during the loading screens, only with a controller.
