Strong Bad drops to July

First episode in Telltale's episodic adventure series based on Homestar Runner antagonist due for simultaneous release on WiiWare and PC next month.


As Strong Bad would probably tell anyone who e-mails him, the episodic adventure game bearing his name will come out once the funtivities can produce laughs enough to lacerate vital internal organs, or something. Be that as it may, Telltale Games' revealed during this week's edition of On the Spot that the first episode in Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People has been bumped to July, from June, on the Wii and PC.

Not entirely the bearer of bad news, however, Telltale producer Brett Tosti also revealed that the WiiWare and PC editions of the game will appear on both platforms simultaneously. Tosti noted that the game has been submitted to Nintendo for approval, and the team is currently adding the final polish to the title.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People will be the first of a five-part series, and similar to Telltale's Sam and Max episodic games, new installments are expected to be released on a monthly basis. Players will assume the role of the titular maybe-hero, solving puzzles and interacting with other denizens from the Homestar Runner universe.
