From the company behind Guitar Hero and DJ Hero comes an awesome new video game you’re going to love! In Ribbon Hero, you must work against the clock to create decorative masterpieces with Ribbons. You start out as the Ribbon Apprentice, but if you work hard, you too can become THE MASTER OF THE–

No, no, no. It’s not like that at all. You see, Ribbon Hero is a videogame for your computer that’s supposed to make using Office 2007 and the upcoming Office 2010 more fun. How do you earn points? By learning how to do stuff in the Office programs using its new Ribbon interface.

Yeah. That’s it.

The official Ribbon Hero website shows a video with a man telling you “how to stay ahead of your competition”. Hey Microsoft? It’s a learning game. Not really a competitive game.

(But don’t worry, Microsoft. I still think the Windows 7 House Party video is my least favorite of all the publicity you’ve done.)

Free at www.officelabs.com/ribbonhero. And of course I’m going to try it.
