Bone Demo Released.

SAN RAFAEL, California � September 15, 2005

Telltale, Inc. is pleased to announce the immediate availability of its first interactive tale based on �Out from Boneville,� from Jeff Smith�s acclaimed Bone series. Visitors to the Telltale website can also download a free demo version of the game.

Telltale, an emerging pioneer in interactive adventures and entertainment, is making this title available through its direct-to-consumer Telltale Now� channel, for downloading titles over the Internet. This can be accessed at the bone.telltalegames.com URL.

The Bone adventures begin with three cousins � Fone Bone, Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone � who become separated in a vast, uncharted desert. One by one, they find their way into a deep, forested valley filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures and new mysteries that await them.
Hailed by reviewers and educators alike as engaging for all ages, the Bone books have become the anchor for a series of graphic novels from Scholastic�s new Graphix imprint.

�I�ve worked very closely with Telltale as they�ve been developing this title and have been very impressed,� says Jeff Smith, creator of Bone.
�They�ve done an amazing job capturing the essence of my story and adapting it for a new medium � with great animation, voices, and fun puzzles and games worked into the story in a very natural way.�

�We�re finding that Bone plays really well as an interactive tale,� says Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale. �It has terrific characters, an interesting setting and a story that hits on many different levels. It has something for everyone, with an approachable narrative for kids; fun mini-games and puzzles; and deeper elements for fans of classic adventures and epic sagas.�

Telltale has created innovative tools, designed specifically for rapid development of high quality, space-efficient titles for digital distribution. With this approach, Telltale has the ability to publish new Bone episodes regularly, with the next one scheduled for early 2006.

Those interested in Telltale�s �Out from Boneville� can download a free demo from bone.telltalegames.com and other popular download sites. They can un-lock the full story for $19.99 without any additional downloads.
