Everybody to the limit!

My college friend Mike can finally talk about what he’s up to. And for a change, it neither involves vaguely rabbity things, nor is it doomed to a three-year production schedule and subsequent non-release. Nay, it’s Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People for WiiWare:

SAN RAFAEL, CA, April 10, 2008 – Interactive entertainment pioneer Telltale, Inc. is pleased to announce Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People (SBCG4AP), a new series of episodic games for WiiWareâ„¢, in partnership with Videlectrix. Starring Strong Bad, the self-proclaimed coolest person ever, the series is based on Matt and Mike Chapman’s online animated series, which has been running at Homestarrunner.com since 2000. SBCG4AP will launch on WiiWare this June.

As the very first episodic series for connected consoles, Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People has been designed specifically for WiiWare, with easy-to-use controls and WiiConnect24â„¢ features. Like Telltale’s popular Sam & Max series, SBCG4AP will be released as a five-episode “season” akin to a season of television. The episodes will come out on a monthly schedule. Release dates and pricing details will be revealed in a future announcement.

Bonus points for including an “About Videlectrix” section in the press release, for the fictional 2600-era game company.

Cooper, who lives “across the hall” from one of the Homestar guys, is duly psyched.
