Telltale announces Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People! 10 Apr, 2008, 15:54 / 19 comments

Today Telltale has revealed its first of two previously unannounced licenses. Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, based on the popular characters and flash toons that make up the universe of Homestar Runner, will be released on WiiWare this June in addition to the PC. This five episode series will be released on a monthly schedule similar to Sam & Max. So far no details (such as the actual schedule or price point) or media have been released, but at least a few of these things should be rectified on Telltale's site later today at their Strongbad page.

So, how awesome is that? Check out the press release. And if you haven't heard of Homestar Runner (and that's seriously a crying shame), you could do worse than heading over there right now and checking out Peasant's Quest, and everything else.

Edit: There's an hilarious trailer up here.

    At first when i read this story i my feelings were "Cool!...What is it?" i then checked the link and was initially turned off by the homestar character thinking he was the focus, after clicking the "First time here" button though i learned how wrong i was. i spent the next few hours watching the strong bad e-mails and laughing like crazy :) Im definatly looking forward to the game, the trailer was a gas as well :)

    Thanks Telltale :) not only for another game to look forward to but introducing me to something i was definately missing out on :)

    Haha that trailer is superb. I'd forgotten how funny those Strongbad things are.

    no idea what it is sorry.. I thought they would have been launching a larger IP for the wii than something internet related.. internet audiences aren't that big -see snakes on a plane

    There isn't a high school or college student who hasn't heard of this... it'll be big enough.

    Apparently we should have been able to deduce this long ago. :(

    Sounds great!

    I wonder what the third licence will be... the really big one...

    Bitchin!!

    hmmm, not really my thing. But then I don't have a Wii anyway so it makes no odds.
  • Udvarnoky on 10 Apr, 2008, 16:08…
    "in addition to the PC"
  • neon_git on 10 Apr, 2008, 16:44…
    What do you want from me? Reading comprehension?
  • The Tingler on 10 Apr, 2008, 16:09…
    Yeah, I'm glad that's happening too. Admittedly it only says that right at the end of the press release.
  • Thrik on 10 Apr, 2008, 16:05…
    That's pretty cool for Telltale. Strongbad is an extremely widely known internet character.
  • elTee on 10 Apr, 2008, 15:43…
    Interesting!

    So it's not quite a launch title, and neither is it WiiWare exclusive.
