Gromit, Inducing: Wallace & Gromit Demo

Fans of the most critically acclaimed lumps of plasticine this side of Orson Welles - who was secretly molded by a very young Tony Hart and let loose as a Golem to revolutionise cinema - will be overjoyed of the release of Telltale's Wallace and Gromit's Grand Adventures demo. And if that takes your fancy, there's an offer to pre-order all four episodic games for 26 dollars - a saving of some money over the standard post-release price. Er... "Gromit, Inducing" is meant in a "Release Gromit" way rather than a comment on the demo's quality, as we haven't played it yet. And enough pun over-defensiveness - there's a demo and a random tiny Wallace & Gromit related anecdote below.

Okay, unlike the rest of the Lilly-livered RPSers, I used to live on the mean streets of Bristol. Everyone was enormously proud of Aardman animation being in town, understandably. I was also living there when there was a serious fire at Aardman's warehouse. Realising what the smoke drifting from the other side of town was a bit humbling - but the bit which stuck in my mind was what a friend of a friend saw when she got up in the morning. She was a few streets over from the factory where all those Morph, Wallace & Gromit props and characters burned. She got out to find all the cars covered with a thin layer of ash, like some kind of Plasticine-character Vesuvian remains. It's not much of a story, but I still like the image.

So, videogames, eh?
