Ah, fond memories!
edited April 2012 in Wallace & Gromit
D'you know, the first two Wallace & Gromit Adventures were the first Telltale games I played, before I even got interested in Sam & Max! Maybe one day, after I finish up "The Devil's Playhouse", I'll get to buying the other two episodes. Come to think of it.. have they made reference to any other Telltale license? In fact, do any of them do..?

Telltale's games are known for their references, or in-jokes. It's a tradition they carried on from their founders' tenure at LucasArts.
I compiled a list of screenshots of in-jokes that I could find in games here.
Episode 1 of Wallace & Gromit contains a reference dating all the way back to Maniac Mansion that has also been included in many Telltale Games (such as Tales of Monkey Island). Tales of Monkey Island episode 1 also has a reference to Wallace & Gromit in return.
Episode 2 of Wallace & Gromit has a slight modification of the reference from episode 1 that makes it a reference to Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.
I haven't yet scoured episodes 3 and 4 for injokes.
Hey Jake i got a question for you. What is your favourite Wallace & Gromit episode?
I updated My blog and Mixnmojo with a screenshot of it.
I'm going to play through The Bogey Man next to see what I can find. There's also a bunch of references to Wallace & Gromit shorts in the episodes. I'll have to play through and get screenshots for those too once I'm done.
I liked the second halves of both The Last Resort and Muzzled quite a lot. If I had a favorite episode it would be a toss up between those two, but probably trending towards Muzzled.
I had a hard time deciding between those 2 about which was my favourite episode but i went for The Last Resort because of the puzzles, the mystery and Having to keep everyone happy in the middle
Yeah, these games are still fun, and the music is great. At the time I was rather dissapointed we were so limited to Wallace's house and the town square, but now that I know what to expect, I'm able to appreciate it far more. I really enjoy the characters too. It's a shame this series isn't talked about more often. My favorite moments are the ones where the designers find an opportunity to use some 2D art. I believe these were the first things Ryan Jones did for Telltale. Those things always look so good.
I'm playing Muzzled right now. Headline on a newspaper on the town square: "Lost dalmations spotted". Absolutely brilliant.
