First Strong Bad episode details

Homestar Ruiner out next month.

Telltale Games has revealed details of the first episode in its upcoming WiiWare and PC adventure series based on Homestar Runner, Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.

It's going to be called Homestar Ruiner. "It starts as a typical day for our animated hero, who gets busy checking his email, playing some Snake Boxer 5, and bugging his friends," the developer explained overnight.

"But the tables turn when a scheme to win the tri-annual Race to the End of the Race sticks Strong Bad with an unwanted house guest: Homestar Runner, disgraced athlete and all-around downer.

"With a depressed Homestar mucking up the masked man's plans, Strong Bad must find a way to get his dimwitted adversary back on the Free Country, USA A-list and out of the House of Strong, once and for all."

Homestar Ruiner is the first of a run of five episodes planned for WiiWare and PC, and is set to kick off in June.

It's all based on Homestar Runner internet cartoon, which still has the power to make us laugh, meaning we have a more functional relationship with it than we do with many of the people we love.
