A new, online virtual world that allows fans to play a variety of Monty Python inspired games will be launched in 2011. Plans for ‘The Ministry Of Silly Games’ site, which has been developed by social gaming specialists Zattikka, were unveiled in December by Python legends Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam.
The online games use sketches, characters and films from the series, as well as Gilliam’s signature visuals made famous in the legendary comedy show. The selection includes Camelot Smashalot, Gumby Flower Arranging, King Arthur’s Knight Fight and Monty Python’s Scratch n’ Sniff and will all be available to play for free when The Ministry Of Silly Games launches in the first quarter of 2011.
“The Ministry Of Silly Games is tapping into a growing trend for games that are played through Facebook and other social networking sites and this is yet another example of how Python’s unique brand of surreal humour is being made available to a whole new generation of comedy fans,” said Mark Hurry, Director of Licensing at Space Enterprises.
