And has teeth

You might not think that a Kinect game based on Sesame Street would need fantastic concept artwork, but that hasn't stopped Double Fine Studios judging by these concept images from Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster.

The artwork shows shy monster Seamus in a grotto underneath the Electric Jungle (we're not making this up), but will come out of his shell when he wears a suitable outfit. It may sound bizarre, but if it inspires the Double Fine team to make beautiful artwork like the images below, we're all for it.

Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster - New Concept Art from Scott Campbell

In celebration of WonderCon, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released new concept art and screenshots from Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, the newly-announced game on Kinect for Xbox 360 launching this autumn.

In a truly interactive experience, young players join Cookie Monster, Elmo and other Sesame Street characters alongside new characters created by the award-winning team at Double Fine Productions. Scott Campbell, production designer at Double Fine and renowned comic and game illustrator, created the concepts for the new original monsters in the game.

One of those monsters, Seamus, is naturally shy, and has a hard time feeling comfortable around other monsters (especially new monsters), and spends much of his time in a grotto underneath the Electric Jungle. Seamus’ greatest love is expressive attire, an interest most obvious in the piles of clothes, dressers, and chests he keeps in his grotto home. Seamus’ love for fashion is so great that it acts as a counter balance to his shy nature; with exactly the right outfit, Seamus will go anywhere or do anything!

Welcome to the site, davahsa! I think kids are going to love this — it's Sesame Street! — so it'll be interesting to hear how it goes down at your household.
