The animated duo of Wallace and Gromit are returning to the big screen in a groundbreaking project that lets you play with their crazy gizmos in virtual reality. Branded as a “dynamic, story-driven, campaign project ” by the studios who have names like Chicken Run, and Shaun The Sheep under its belt, The Grand Getaway follows the mighty duo on a trip that went tragically awry.
Once they’ve arrived at their destination, they discover that their newest invention, the Auto-Caddy, has gone berserk. As a result, players have no choice but to explore the virtual universe on their own and make use of their many creations in order to restore order.
Aardman Animations Working On Something Else as Well
The duo is making their Metaverse debut, however, they made appearances in the 2020 smartphone title Big Fix-Up. Oculus Quest 2 was formerly named Meta Quest 2, and it is anticipated that the forthcoming game would premiere on that platform sometime next year.
At the very minimum, Aardman Animations is working on another project. A “crazy, open-world” title-centered on an exclusive Property is now in development at the inventive company, according to job postings from a few months ago. In spite of the fact that it won’t star the aforementioned characters, the company’s stop-motion pictures have grown renowned for their unique aesthetic and wit.
In addition to seeming grandiose, the 3D action title seems like it will include a cast of interesting people in an intriguing setting, all of which will be propelled by a strong story.

Aardman Animations as well as Bandai Namco announced a couple of years ago that they were working together on a fresh Property, but nothing more is available concerning the project. It’s plausible, based on the phrasing in both releases, that this new title is the result of that collaboration.
The studio isn’t a total rookie to online games, notwithstanding their prominence in other forms of media. The company collaborated with DigixArt on 2018’s 11-11: Memories Retold. A World War I-themed episodic exploration title starring Elijah Wood was praised by critics when it was launched last year.
