What's better than a sizeable chunk of Wensleydale cheese? How about a free full game episode of Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures! Telltale today joins Aardman Animations in celebrating Wallace & Gromit's 20th anniversary by opening up free downloads of one of the critically-acclaimed series' episodes, Muzzled! today through noon (PST) Monday, November 9.
Additionally, the full four-episode PC season of Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures will be discounted to $20 (roughly 12 GBP) from $34.95 USD for these same dates in honor of the eccentric inventor and his canine companion's two decade milestone.
In Muzzled! town newcomer, Monty Muzzle, is holding a fundraiser to rebuild the local dog shelter. Gromit soon realizes that Muzzle's intentions aren't exactly charitable and he must foil the huckster's plot to save the town's investment and rescue his canine friends. In the review for Muzzled!, Armchair Empire hails the game as the best episode to that point with "strong story (a hallmark of all three episodes), a refreshing setting change to the carnival grounds, and a starring role for Gromit." Gamervision said of Muzzled!, "The humor is spot on, the new characters and locations are entertaining, and it's obvious that Telltale has really found the niche into which Wallace and Gromit's story fits."
November 4 marks the 20th anniversary of Wallace & Gromit's first appearance in the Aaardman short, A Grand Day Out. Since their debut, the inventor and his silently expressive dog have built an enormous global following, appearing in award-winning animated short films, a feature-length motion picture, their very own books, video games, apparel, and much more.
