Social game developer Zattikka has announced The Ministry of Silly Games, its collaboration with revered comedy group Monty Python that features minigames based on the troupe's sketches and films. Previewing the title at an event with Monty Python stars Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam, Zattikka revealed that The Ministry of Silly Games takes place "within the madcap Monty Python virtual world" and will launch as a free game on Facebook in the first quarter of 2011. The UK-based developer points out that this will be the first Monty Python game in 13 years. CEO Tim Chaney says the company aims to transport the brand into the 21st century with "a totally new experience for their unique comedy that will delight old and new fans alike." The Ministry of Silly Games' minigames include nods to familiar Monty Python sketches and gags, such as King Arthur's Knight Fight, Camelot Smashaot, Mr. Cresote, Glumby Flower Arranging, and more. "The Ministry of Silly Games brings Monty Python characters and scenes to life like never before," says Jones. "For years, people have wondered what it would be like to catapult livestock at French fortresses, or play Russian Roulette with an Upper Class Twit. Well now they finally can, thanks to The Ministry of Silly Games."
