"YOU ARE Strong Bad in this point-and-click-em-up adventure from Videlectrix and Telltale Games (they bought us lunch even!) of the WiiWare for the Wii in your house"Videlectrix

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People (SBCG4AP) is an episodic series of games developed by Telltale Games for the PC and WiiWare platforms. The series was announced by a press release on April 10, 2008, followed shortly by an advertisement on homestarrunner.com and a trailer and screenshots on the Telltale Games website.

The game is being produced in full collaboration with The Brothers Chaps and Videlectrix, with Matt Chapman and Missy Chapman providing the voice acting. The 3D animation in the game is being rendered by Telltale's animators with attention to preservation of the look and feel of the 2D Flash cartoons.

This game will be divided into five episodes released in intervals of one month, the first of which, Homestar Ruiner, is scheduled to be released in July 2008. Each episode will be downloadable through the Wii Shop Channel or through Telltale's website at a similar price to the other episodic series on the Telltale website. A bundle of the full series will be purchasable for the PC, but not for the Wii.

A week and a half before the game was announced, actual gameplay footage from the game was featured in the YouTube video Strong Bad Gameways. Despite the flashing message on the screen, "ACTUAL GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE", it was unknown whether or not such a 3D game was actually in the works, until Telltale Games announced the game and confirmed that the Strong Bad Gameways footage was from it. According to a later interview, the game had been been discussed for over a year. It was finalized when Nintendo announced the WiiWare system, and development officially began in January 2008. On April 11, the gaming website IGN covered the Nintendo Summit and several demo demonstrations of WiiWare, including SBCG4AP.

Using a point and click interface, players have Strong Bad talk to various characters using an icon system or highlight objects to interact with. In addition to the main plot, you can also kick The Cheat into the dryer, read emails, box against snakes or discover numerous Easter eggs. With a cell phone, Strong Bad can prank call Marzipan or other characters (even himself). Throughout the game, Strong Bad can collect index cards to help him create Teen Girl Squad comics in his bedroom. It has been confirmed in a review that the emails within the game are not sent by real fans, but they will help serve to advance the plot or give a player a hint if they are stuck. The game also will reportedly use the WiiConnect24 online system, allowing players to interact with other users, but the details haven't been finalized yet.
