Developed by social gaming specialists Zattikka, The Ministry Of Silly Games was unveiled to the world’s press at the start of December by Python legends Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam and is the first new Monty Python video game for 13 years.

The virtual world lets fans play a variety of games that use some of Gilliam’s classic visuals and are based on sketches, characters and films. The selection includes Camelot Smashalot, Gumby Flower Arranging, King Arthur's Knight Fight and Monty Python’s Scratch n’ Sniff, and will all be available to play for free when The Ministry Of Silly Games launches in Q1 next year.

Anybody wanting a sneak preview and to be an official tester for the new game can sign up for the Beta program at www.ministryofsillygames.com

“The Ministry Of Silly Games is tapping into a growing trend for games that are played through Facebook and other social networking sites and this is yet another example of how Python’s unique brand of surreal humour is being made available to a whole new generation of comedy fans,” said Mark Hurry, director of licensing at Space Enterprises.
