Strong Bad Coming to the Wii!

The funniest thing on the internet that I haven't checked out in years, Strong Bad from Homestarrunner.com is getting his own series of episodic adventure games on WiiWare, the Wii's upcoming downloadable games service. Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People is a collaborative effort from Videlectrix (the Homestarrunner guys' heretofore "fake" video game company) and Telltale Games, the guys behind the successful Sam & Max episodic games. There will be a total of five episodes, released monthly starting in June (soon!). The press release says the episodes will play out like extended cartoons, during which the player assumes the role of Strong Bad and becomes "part of his awesome world." Strong Bad himself had this to say:
"Telltale has been rejecting my ideas for green text adventures for years," laments thousandaire gadabout Strong Bad, "but we finally reached a compromise with this puffy 3D point-and-click-em-up adventure. They claim all the coding was done with green text, so I guess that's pretty cool."
There's a trailer up at Telltalegames.com
