You can now get involved in their cracking adventure!
With Aardman Animations and a Gromit Unleashed trail based in Bristol, many of us aren’t unaware of the connection that Wallace and Gromit have with the city. But now, finally, a brand new story of the well-known pair is to be set in Bristol.
The animators have launched an app where you can become part of Wallace and Gromit’s Spick & Spanners crew, enhancing your world with authentic, colourful augmented reality as you take part in a clean-up operation like no other, which is based in Bristol. Plus, you’ll also have a mystery to solve along the way, too…
The game has a mix of actors, featuring the voice of Jim Carter from Downton Abbey and also Joe Sugg, plus animation and augmented reality and you’ll even come across some familiar places such as College Green and Queen Square.
On the Wallace and Gromit Facebook page, the post said: “ THE BIG FIX UP IS LIVE! From today, you can join Nick Park’s much-loved duo Wallace and Gromit for their first augmented reality adventure! Step into an exciting real-time story and interact with your favourite characters (and meet some new ones too) as you become part of The Big Fix Up team, taking part in challenges, building contraptions, solving a mystery and more….and you can do all of this without leaving home!”
If you fancy joining Wallace and his faithful hound on their latest business venture, Spick & Spanners, who are taking on the contract of a lifetime: to ‘Fix Up’ Bristol, then you can download the free app from Google Play or the App Store. The app let’s you play along at home, as an employee, and for the first time ever, YOU can step directly into the wonderful world of Wallace and Gromit.
Sadly, no real cheese is included in the game.
