Bone Game

Bone is a fantastic all-ages story, and from the report, the game will closely follow the story. It's like living the adventures of Smiley Bone, Fone Bone, and Phoney Bone! The first section is scheduled to come out in September.

From Jeremy Goldstone's report:
For a book that reminds many people of stories from the past, Jeff Smith's "Bone" is looking towards the future. Not only is the series the premiere graphic novel from Scholastic Books' Graphix imprint, but Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, Smiley Bone and all the rest of Smith's characters are soon to be the stars of a series of PC video games from Telltale Games, revealed at a meeting across the street from Comic-Con International in San Diego this past weekend.

Telltale is releasing a series of point-and-click adventure games based on each of the "Bone" chapters over the Internet on their Web site. Despite being only 50 megabyte downloads, the games will feature a full voice cast with dialogue taken directly from the original word balloons.
