Wallace & Gromit Episode One Launched

Share |

Telltale Games has announced the launch of "Wallace & Gromit: Fright of the Bumblebees", the first of four episodes in a new adventure series.

"Wallace and Gromit, the well-meaning but accident-prone inventor and his capable and highly-intelligent canine companion, have been delighting audiences with their animated adventures for twenty years. Their most recent outing, Wallace & Gromit in A Matter of Loaf and Death, aired with record-setting viewership this past Christmas. Telltale’s Wallace & Gromit games are designed for the same all-ages crowd as the films, and will be appreciated by gamers and non-gamers alike.

Alternating between the roles of both Wallace and Gromit throughout the game, players will banter with a charismatic cast of characters, tinker with Wallace’s creative contraptions, and enjoy four all-new stories set in the colorful Wallace & Gromit universe. Given the franchise’s global appeal, Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures includes subtitles in German, French, Italian, and Spanish. In today’s debut episode, "Fright of the Bumblebees," Wallace attempts to save his bumbling honey business through the growth of supersized flowers. When these giant flowers lead to an unintended consequence, giant bees, Gromit must step in to save the town from the angry swarm.

Sean Clarke, Head of Aardman Rights said: "The partnership with Telltale was a natural one. Their talent for crafting engaging adventures with humour and charm fits well with the Wallace & Gromit style, and the four games of Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures make excellent new additions to the series."

To celebrate the series premiere, Telltale is offering the full series on PC for the limited-time special price of $29.95 (approx. GBP21), a 15% savings on the regular price of $34.95 (approx. GBP24). During the launch week, customers who purchase Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures will also get an amazing 50% discount on all other items in Telltale’s store, including the acclaimed Sam & Max games, Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People, and related merchandise. These special offers expire March 29.
