SAN DIEGO, California, July 15, 2005
See the cast of Jeff Smithâ€™s Bone saga come to life in lush, cinematic 3D in the preview for Telltale Incorporatedâ€™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, Tedâ€™s big brother and Thornâ€™s Granâ€™Ma Ben. Viewers will get a taste for Jeff Smithâ€™s unique brand of humor in this trailer, and Telltaleâ€™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 Nowâ„¢, for downloading titles over the Internet. For more information, on Bone and Telltale Now, visit http://www.telltalegames.com.

Bone accolades and awards include the prestigious Eisner Award for Best Writer/Artist (Humor category), the Harvey Award for Best Cartoonist, Italy's Yellow Kid Award for Best Author, Spain's Premios Expocomic for Best Foreign Comics, and Finland's Lempi International for Best International Cartoonist.
