Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures Games Now Available at Retail

Full Season Collector’s DVD Includes Four PC Videogames from Telltale and Aardman, Video Extras and Bonus Episode Offer

It’s an exciting time for fans of Wallace & Gromit as Telltale Games and Aardman bring the Grand Adventures series of PC games to retail outlets in North America this week. Since its debut last year, Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures has garnered acclaim from critics, winning Editor’s Choice Awards from IGN and GamePro, along with acclaim from Parenthood.com, which named the title one of 2009’s best games for kids. Published in conjunction with Telltale’s retail partner, Gator, a publishing services group, this package is available for the suggested retail price of $19.99.

Wallace & 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, was recently nominated for a “Best Animated Short Film” Oscar. 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 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. The Collector’s DVD for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures includes the entire series, along with a host of special features and exclusive content.

The PC DVD includes:

  • Offer for a FREE PC episode from Telltale’s Sam & Max series

  • All four Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures episodes

  • Aardman Animation’s 10 Cracking Contraptions shorts

  • Behind the scenes videos and trailers

  • Gallery of screenshots and concept art from the season

And Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures just might be the next Telltale game to come to Mac. Gamers have until February 21st to cast their vote for Telltale’s next Mac release at http://www.telltalegames.com/macgames.
