Monty Python stars push Facebook game

Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones approve.

Beloved British comics Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones are promoting a brand new Monty Python virtual world for Facebook.

It will be known as The Ministry of Silly Games.

Developer Zattika hopes to rekindle the bonkers style of Python and turn many cherished sketches into games within a game. At launch (whenever that is) there will be the following pursuits: Twit Russian Roulette, Camelot Smashalot, Grumbly Flower Arranging, King Arthur's Knight Fight, Monty Python's Scratch and Sniff, Mr Creosote, Gillaxian and Aerial Antics.

"For years, people have wondered what it would be like to catapult livestock at French fortresses or play Russian Roulette with an Upper Class Twit," commented Terry Jones.

Terry Gilliam added: "The Ministry of Silly Games looks like what was inside my head when I was creating all that iconic imagery."

Ellie Gibson went along to the London event yesterday to chat to both Gilliam and Jones. The results we'll publish on Eurogamer next week - maybe they talked about X-Factor.

Meanwhile, pop your name down for the Ministry of Silly Games beta now, or peruse the official website for some minuscule screenshots.
