Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures, a new game series, debuts today at TelltaleGames.com (http://www.telltalegames.com). FRIGHT OF THE BUMBLEBEES, the first of four digitally-distributed games starring the popular Plasticine duo, is available now. Subsequent installments will be delivered in May, June, and July.
Telltale's WALLACE & GROMIT games are designed for the same all-ages crowd as the films. Alternating between the roles of both Wallace and Gromit throughout the game, players will banter with a cast of characters, tinker with Wallace's creative contraptions, and enjoy four all-new stories set in the 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, 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 humor 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, a 15% savings on the regular price of $34.95. During the launch week, customers who purchase WALLACE & GROMIT'S GRAND ADVENTURES will also get a 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.
