Good news for gaming fans....

Telltale Games is creating an episodic video game based on Aardman Animations' Oscar-winning animated film series titled "Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures."

"We're certainly going for the clay look with this," Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors told The Associated Press. "Clay presents a challenge if you really get into the detail of it. For example, adding fingerprints in a medium where there aren't any is one of the discussions of how far we should go with the game's detail."

"Grand Adventures" will allow gamers to play as both Wallace and Gromit, engaging in zany entrepreneurial schemes and tinkering with kooky contraptions. Connors said "Grand Adventures" will feature more physical and situation-based comedy and would likely follow the distribution model of Telltale's episodic video game series "Sam & Max."

The characters previously appeared in the standalone games "Cracking Contraptions," "Project Zoo" and "Curse of The Were-Rabbit." Connors hopes the new take on "Wallace & Gromit" will be more true to the franchise than previous games.

"The other games captured the personality, but all you ended up doing was running through the world," said Connors. "It was a standard platform game. We feel like the gameplay should be more of an experience. You should be able to interact with the other characters and really feel like you're in the world of 'Wallace & Gromit.'"

Check back on Monday when we'll have more information, including screen shots and a teaser video for the game!

As Telltales' game "Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People" will be released for PC and Wii, I guess this will be the same for W&G, too.
@katie: The term online game is perhaps a bit misleading. TTG games can be bought and downloaded online from the TTG website and you need to be online connection to register them. But the games themselves are pure offline games.

How much will it cost?


katie Aardman Staff Posted: Jul 25th 2008

@atwupak - I agree, amended! :)

I'll also see what else I can find out regarding wii compatibility/prices!

its going to be cool

It's amazing how many people think these games will be free because they're being released through digital distribution.
I'd recommend trying out the free Demos of Sam & Max to get an idea of what gameplay will be like. I really don't even like to put Telltale's games (and Adventure Games in general) in the "Video Game" category because they are so much more then just a cheap thrill. They're games with a soul.
I suspect we're all in for an awesome treat


cinoa Posted: Jul 27th 2008
