SAN DIEGO, California, July 15, 2005
See the cast of Jeff Smith's Bone saga come to life in lush, cinematic
3D in the preview for Telltale Incorporated's upcoming interactive
tale. Telltale, an emerging pioneer in interactive adventures and
entertainment, is unveiling this preview trailer at Comic-Con
International in San Diego this week, as it prepares for the launch of
the full interactive title in September.
The trailer shows Fone, Phoney and Smiley Bone, who get lost in a stark
desert far from their beloved Boneville. They run into dangerous (and
dim) rat creatures, a mysterious red dragon, and a brave companion
named Thorn as they plunge into a strange and mysterious valley. The
trailer also provides a first look at Ted the bug, Ted's big brother
and Thorn's Gran'Ma Ben. Viewers will get a taste for Jeff Smith's
unique brand of humor in this trailer, and Telltale's faithful
adaptation to the interactive medium.
The trailer is available for viewing today at http://bone.telltalegames.com.
This September, Telltale will release the full interactive title
through its recently announced direct-to-consumer channel Telltale
Now™, for downloading titles over the Internet. For more information,
