Wallace and Gromit arrive on Xbox

San Jose, Calif. (October 08, 2003) - BAM! Entertainment® announced today that it has commenced shipping of Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo for PlayStation 2; and the Xbox and Nintendo’s GameCube to follow next week. Created by Aardman, the popular clay characters Wallace & Gromit have starred in several half-hour films that have won more than 45 international awards including two Oscars®. Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo was developed by U.K.-based Frontier Developments, who have added a superb visual dimension to compliment Aardman’s much loved duo. "From the moment we announced that we were bringing Wallace & Gromit to gaming consoles, we’ve received nothing but excitement and anticipation from the press, consumers and retailers," said Ray Musci, Chief Executive Officer of BAM! Entertainment. "We continue to reaffirm our commitment in delivering quality titles for the entire family this holiday season while bringing a new vision to this popular brand." "BAM! and Frontier Developments have truly captured the unique charm of the Wallace & Gromit films," said Sean Clarke, Vice President of Consumer Products at Aardman. "The game showcases the charisma of both original and new characters, which is complemented by the humor and magnetism we’ve come to associate with Wallace & Gromit." Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo has already received praise and high review scores from gaming press. PSM says of the game "…A near-perfect platformer starring clay characters with real heart…" and PSE2 gives the game an Editor’s Choice Gold Award saying, "Creative missions, beautiful animation, and rip-roaring British humor combine in one of the better TV adaptations of the year …". Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo is an action-adventure game where the player is on a mission to liberate the zoo from the evil clutches of the maniacal penguin, Feathers McGraw. Gamers will play as the non-speaking yet charismatic dog, Gromit. With Wallace in tow, building ingenious contraptions, Gromit will navigate six diverse and lush levels completing 24 missions and 12 mini-arcade games as he rescues baby zoo animals, solves puzzles and attempts to defeat Feathers the Penguin at his evil game. The Wallace & Gromit films have been dubbed into more than 20 languages with U.S. and U.K. video sales reaching over 10 million units. Aardman recently released Cracking Contraptions, a series of ten Wallace & Gromit films and is set to begin production with DreamWorks on the first feature-length Wallace & Gromit movie slated for release in 2005.
