WiiWare: Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People

Posted by Darren Calvert

Telltale Games, developers of the excellent Sam 'n Max series, have announced their intention to give fans something new in the shape of the amusingly titled Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, debuting on WiiWare this June.

For those not aware, the Strong Bad animated series has been running at homestarrunner.com since 2000. Strong Bad himself is the self-proclaimed coolest person ever, created by Matt and Mike Chapman.

As the very first episodic series for connected consoles, the game has been specifically designed for the challenges of WiiWare, with easy-to-use controls and WiiConnect24 features.

Like Sam 'n Max, the first series will have five episodes, coming out on a monthly schedule. Release dates and pricing details will be revealed at a later date.

Here’s what Telltale chief executive Dan Connors has to say:

Homestarrunner.com is one of the biggest success stories in online entertainment.

The Chapmans have been treating the internet to episodic content for years. We're thrilled to have teamed up with them to take episodic gaming to the next level via Nintendo's innovative WiiWare delivery system.

Telltale are working with the Chapmans on the art style, storylines and scripts, with voice acting provided by the original cast.

The games will also be available on PC.

Good, I suppose, but I would have preferred an announcement on Sam 'n' Max on Wii.

I might get this. I've never played an episodic game series, and a cheap, Wii version I'll try.

Fantastic. I'm just a mild fan of the series, all be it a funny show, but I'm VERY excited about this considering the developer.
An excellent announcement, says I.

@Tony, Or lie and say your attractive. :P

I am very surprised this is the episodic game that wasn't Sam & Max, let alone starring STRONG BAD himself. YAY! :D

Heheh, wow, this brings back memories. I haven't been on that website for like 3 years now since I promised myself not to go on it. The reason? Simple, I spent waaaay too much time on that site but this is still great news.

I wonder if I am going to bother with this though seeing that I don't care much for Point 'n Click adventure games anyway. I had trouble with one of the episodes of Sam & Max (btw I liked Max _) and I just wanted to finish it, or that it was very late when I played it.

Sounds bizzare! I've never Heard of it before; however I'm not going to buy anything for the Wii that is based off a Flash web game. Let us hope that this is not Shovelware.

Telltale Games, the guys who are making this, made the Sam and Max episodic games on the PC, which are a really high quality return to old-fashioned adventure games (like Day of the Tenticle or the Monkey Island games back in the day.)

I'm really looking forward to this, they are kind of taking all the writers and tools from that game and making it look and feel like a Strongbad title. Should be awesome. I highly highly doubt this is shovelware.
