Wallace and Gromit on PC!

posted by Nell Minow

Telltale, Inc. and Aardman Animations have announced that Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures, the new comedy game series based on the claymation duo, will premiere for PC on March 24. The series’ Xbox LIVE® Arcade debut will follow soon.
In Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures, the world of West Wallaby Street comes alive in four brand new stories kids can. Like the films, each Wallace & Gromit episode finds the earnest inventor and his faithful canine companion embarking on ambitious new ventures laced with unexpected (and always amusing) complications. Players will experience all of their favorite elements from the acclaimed Wallace & Gromit films: imaginative storylines; warm, character-based humor; creative contraptions; physical comedy; and a distinct visual style. A demo that showcases both Wallace and Gromit as playable characters can be downloaded exclusively from Yahoo and FilePlanet.com today.
In a special preorder offer through March 23, customers can get the full, four episode series on PC for just $26–a 25% discount off the regular $34.95 price. Customers who preorder will also receive two free bonus episodes, one from Telltale’s acclaimed second season of Sam & Max (named Adventure Game of the Year by PC Gamer, IGN, and Adventure Gamers) and one from Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People (runner-up for IGN’s Adventure Game of the Year award).
To take advantage of this limited-time offer or to view the latest game trailer, visit the official Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures website.
