'Wallace & Gromit Ep.4: The Bogey Man' (ALL) Coming Tomorrow - New Screens

by Rainier on July 28, 2009 @ 3:00 p.m. PDT

In Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures, you assume the roles of both Wallace and Gromit, and spend each episode exploring a vivid world, assembling intricate contraptions, and getting the duo out of the sticky situations they frequently find themselves in.

Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures will deliver all of the humor and charm of the duo's popular animated films, with a monthly series of brand new interactive stories in Telltale's unique episodic format. Alternating between the roles of quirky inventor Wallace and his faithful canine companion Gromit, players embark on their own style of entrepreneurial business ventures, tinker with creative contraptions, and interact with an ever-expanding cast of fun and endearing characters in each episode.

An endearing and affable inventor. Ever enthusiastic, Wallace's hair-brained, over-ambitious, yet well intentioned ideas consistently get him and his faithful hound into trouble. A definite penchant for cheese and crackers, not to mention fashionable knitwear!

Wallace's long-suffering loyal pooch. Gromit cares greatly for Wallace even though he's often railroaded into his master's mad-cap plans. Though cultured and sensitive, preferring order and the quiet life, Gromit displays amazing courage and heroism when it comes to getting his master out of self-made scrapes. Always showing astonishing initiative, Gromit is definitely the intelligent one of the pair.

The final episode of Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures completes a four-month escapade that has taken the famous inventor and his faithful pooch through a madcap series of wild and engaging new stories.  The finale episode, entitled “The Bogey Man,” puts Wallace’s mechanical and social skills—not to mention his golf swing—to the test. Filled with unrequited romance, hidden mysteries, perplexing contraptions, and a heavy dose of comic relief, “The Bogey Man” brings the series to an exciting climax in grand Wallace & Gromit style.

In the previous episode, Wallace inadvertently got down on one knee before his prim neighbor Felicity Flitt – who interpreted the gesture as a marriage proposal. In a twisted plot true to Wallace & Gromit form, his only chance for a reprieve is admission into the prestigious Prickly Thicket country club, an association distained by the Flitt family due to a centuries-old dispute. It seems like the perfect escape, but once Wallace is admitted into the club, he learns of a much larger mystery that must be solved to protect the West Wallaby Street lifestyle he and Gromit hold dear.  Built by Wallace and Gromit’s own ancestors, the club itself is a grand machine in the style of Wallace’s own inventions, and its mechanical inner-workings hide a secret that must be recovered to return life back to normal. Only Wallace and Gromit have the technical know-how to unlock the mysteries protected by this contraption to top all contraptions!

Over the last four months, Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures has taken the heroes through exciting new stories – from a honey business plagued by giant problems (and giant bees!), to a whodunit set at an underground beach resort in Wallace’s cellar, to a heartwarming tale of canine wiles triumphing over an oily villain’s greedy deceit. Tomorrow's release represents the first time the complete episodic series is available on PC, making now the ideal time for new players to dive in and enjoy all four Grand Adventures stories.

Wallace & Gromit Ep 4: The Bogey Man is scheduled for release on Tuesday, July 27, 2009 on PC.
