Monty Python Facebook Games Inbound

I plucked this odd story off the Edge tree. UK studio Zattikka, creators of, uh, Isoball 2 and mobile phone title Mr Bean: Out Of Control, has announced that it's acquired the rights to produce "social and browser games" based on Monty Python's Flying Circus. They've also updated their site with a 'Coming Soon' header hinting at a 'Ministry of Silly Games'.

According to Zattikka the surviving members of Monty Python (including animator Terry Gilliam) will be involved in the project, which is described as “a homage to all the characters, settings, sketc hes and comedic approach that has made Monty Python a worldwide phenomenon.” You can read the full announcement from Zattikka CEO Tim Chaney after the jump.

“Monty Python is one of the most iconic comedy licenses around, but there has been no new material for over 20 years. By acquiring these rights we will be transporting Monty Python into the 21st Century, with a totally new experience for their unique comedy that will delight old and new fans alike. Forget Web 2.0, this is Python two point one and three quarters”.

Hmm. More news next month, apparently. In the meantime, let's all enjoy some classic Flying Circus.

Actually, that just makes me want to watch Look Around You.
