Telltale doing Wallace and Gromit games

Telltale games is to release a batch of episodic titles based around Nick Park’s Wallace and Gromit franchise, the company told the AP earlier today.

The series will be called Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures and will continue the popular “clay look” from the films and TV shorts.

“We’re certainly going for the clay look with this,” CEO Dan Connors said. “Clay presents a challenge if you really get into the detail of it. For example, adding fingerprints in a medium where there aren’t any is one of the discussions of how far we should go with the game’s detail.”

Grand Adventures will feature more physical and situation-based comedy, and will likely follow the distribution model of Telltale’s episodic video game series Sam & Max, says the piece.
