Zattikka, a new player in social and casual gaming across browser, social network games and mobile platforms today are delighted to announce that they have acquired the license to create social games based on the creations of the legendary comedy group, Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
Apparently this means we’ll be able to play Python-themed games on Facebook. Or something.
So what do they mean by “social games?”
“Monty Python is one of the most iconic comedy licenses around, but there has been no new material for over 20 years. By acquiring these rights we will be transporting Monty Python into the 21st Century, with a totally new experience for their unique comedy that will delight old and new fans alike. Forget Web 2.0, this is Python two point one and three quarters”
Interestingly, the Monty Python brand joins Mr Bean, in Zattikka’s brand stable, which they claim “exemplifies Zattikka’s desire to create and release new titles that are of the highest possible quality” but which everyone else has just dismissed as them showing off.
