Bone: Out from Boneville developer Telltale Games is pleased to announce a multi-title agreement with Big Fish Games to bring retail caliber games direct to consumers over the Internet

Based on the first book in Jeff Smith’s acclaimed graphic novel series, Out from Boneville begins as three cousins ­ Fone Bone, Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone ­ become separated in a vast, uncharted desert and find their way into a deep, forested valley filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures and new mysteries that await them.

Telltale CEO Dan Connors says "With this alliance, Out from Boneville will now be available to a new audience at Big Fish Games to extend its reach even further. Many have enjoyed visiting the world of Bone since it launched this fall ­ from distribution through the Telltale Now channel, Yahoo! Games and through other partners. We’re sure that Big Fish Game's visitors will become charmed with this amazing tale when they download it from their site!"

"Having collaborated with numerous studios over the years, we’re very impressed with Telltale’s titles," says Cory Finnell, Vice President of Digital Distribution at Big Fish Games. "Everyone who downloads the free trial will feel transported through this engaging story, unique characters and rich setting. We're looking forward to offering future Bone episodes and other Telltale titles at in the coming months."

Quandaryland calls Out from Boneville "A great game to play along with the kids" and says "The Bone cousins are a thoroughly charming trio … their antics, plus the excellent dialog and voice acting, are bound to pull at the heart strings." Mr. Bill’s Adventureland adds "The game is clever, original, and most of all, just plain fun."
