Telltale (Sam & Max) has announced that it is partnering with Homestar Runner creators Matt and Mike Chapman to bring five part episodic title Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People to WiiWare and PC this June. The companies say the five episode series will fully utilize the Wii remote and yet unspecified WiiConnect24 features in a game that promises to play "like extended cartoons, during which the player assumes the role of Strong Bad—controlling his actions, hearing his innermost thoughts, and becoming part of his awesome world." The game, says Telltale, has players uncovering "each episode's comedic plot through character interaction, dialogue-based puzzles, and the use (and abuse) of inventory items," as well as featuring "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." Said Telltale CEO Dan Connors, "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." Added "thousandaire gadabout" Strong Bad, "Telltale has been rejecting my ideas for green text adventures for years. but we finally reached a compromise with this puffy 3D point-and-click-em-up adventure. They claim all the coding was done with green text, so I guess that's pretty cool."
