AWARD-WINNING GAME DEVELOPER Denki teams up with the loveable duo, following its creation of Wallace & Gromit: "Curse of the Were-Rabbit" for Sky Gamestar.
Based on the eagerly anticipated Feature Film, the fast-paced, action packed fun takes place in Wallace & Gromit's own neighbourhood - where an army of Veg-Ravaging-Rabbits run amok destroying the inhabitants' extremely valuable Prize Vegetables.
Players control everyone's favourite pooch, Gromit, on a mission to clean the neighbourhood of these rampaging rabbits. Armed with an ever increasing array of Wallace's Cracking Contraptions, Gromit must strive to keep each neighbour happy and their prize veg safe.
But in the midst of all this mayhem, Wallace & Gromit discover another problem to deal with. A problem so large, so monstrous and so very ravenous - a terrifying beast the locals come to call - The Were-Rabbit!
Commenting today, Denki's Managing Director, Colin Anderson said: "The completion of Wallace & Gromit sees us deliver our twentieth branded product for interactive television. This is testament to the continuing trust some of the biggest brand owners in the world are placing in Denki's development skills."
Wallace & Gromit: "Curse of the Were-Rabbit" is live exclusively on Sky Gamestar as of Thursday the 06th of October 2005. Just press the INTERACTIVE button on your Sky Remote Control...
