Prepare to be transported into the charming and hilarious world of Wallace & Gromit like never before. The Grand Getaway VR experience promises an unforgettable journey filled with wit, humor, and the trademark inventiveness of these iconic characters. Astrea invites fans to join Wallace and his loyal canine companion Gromit as they navigate a series of delightful situations in a brand new chapter for the duo.

As the duo gets ready for their golfing getaway with their new contraption Auto-Caddy and their assistant Beryl, they quickly realize that Wallace had his dates mixed up, and that the only way to make it to Bognor Regis golfing resort on time is by taking the Rocket. But ever the maker of his own misfortune, Wallace soon causes mayhem with a clumsy mishap which sends their Rocket flying off course to Mars, where their adventure begins.

The immersive experience unfolds across twelve distinct chapters, allowing users to play as AutoCaddy, Gromit, and Wallace as they navigate a cinematic virtual reality experience full of the interactions that make VR so fun and unique.

Jamtastic! presents the chance for  players themselves to be the star. With Wallace away on his Grand Getaway, he needs them (and their living room) to put his new ‘jam-to-toast delivery system’ through its paces, in an experience that is part shooting gallery and part joyful mess maker!

With the assistance of his ‘helping hands’ that takeover and transform their real-world space, and regular check-ins from Wallace as he beams into your home live from his Grand Getaway, players will be guided through 30 unique levels of jamtastic fun. The more they test the more they unlock,  taking delivery of new, wonderfully chaotic challenges testing jam-firing timing, accuracy and speed.

"The Jamtastic! team has put fun and replayability at the heart of the game. We want people to challenge themselves and each other to best their scores and compete with friends and family. We see this joyous mess of toast-based tests taking over your home as the perfect way to bring people together."- commented the creators.
