today announced the release of Bone Act 1: Out from Boneville
for the Macintosh. This game is the first installment of an episodic interactive adventure based on Jeff Smith’s acclaimed Bone series. The Mac version was created in partnership with Telltale, Inc., who previously published the title for Windows PCs.
The adventure begins with three cousins – Fone Bone, Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone – who become separated in a vast, uncharted desert. One by one, they find their way into a deep, forested valley filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures and new mysteries that await them. The Bone books have been hailed by reviewers and educators alike as engaging for all ages.
“The engaging characters and storyline of Jeff Smith’s Bone series make for a very fun and family-friendly interactive adventure,” says Amy Torres, CEO of Vanbrio. “With great gameplay, beautiful animation and sound, fun puzzles and mini-games, all wrapped up in an episodic series, we knew Bone: Out from Boneville had to be on the Mac!”
“We believe the Bone series is the type of creative and innovative content that is really at home on the Mac. The team at Vanbrio did a great job in bringing it there,” added Telltale CEO Dan Connors.
