Nice. I like it. If you’ve been aimlessly drifting about the world wide web for any substantial period of time, you’ve undoubtedly come across (and spent several hours on) Homestarrunner.com — a fantastical world made of wonderful Flash cartoons starring hilarious characters.
In June, we’ll see the first of five episodic WiiWare games from the “Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People” collection.
The games will be published by Telltale, Inc. of San Rafael, California in partnership with Videlectrix (some of you may have noticed that name on the Homestar site before, associated with the available mini-games). Firm release dates for each episode/game along with pricing “will be revealed in a future announcement,” according to the press release. Here’s more info…
Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People is a story-driven series with a comic spin that’s undeniably Strong Bad. The player uncovers each episode’s comedic plot through character interaction, dialogue-based puzzles, and the use (and abuse) of inventory items. In addition, each episode will be crammed with time-wasters to keep players poking around in the world, including Strong Bad emails to check, prank phone calls to place, and mini-games styled after the arcade games on the Homestarrunner.com website.
