6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Cartoon Network's first massively multi-player online game (MMOG), Cartoon Network Universe: FusionFall, is set to land on both Windows and Macintosh computers this fall. It was created using the Unity 3D game development engine.
Produced in collaboration with Grigon Entertainment, FusionFall is an MMOG set in a re-imagined Cartoon Network universe. As a kid in this world, players will team up with other players and Cartoon Network characters to defend it from an alien invasion of epic proportions. The game is a mix of 3-D console platform game action with the customization, character development and open-ended world exploration of an MMORPG. In addition, small, super-deformed versions of Cartoon Network characters are collected along the way and travel with players, providing powers and abilities to assist during missions.
"Our current offering of online games continues to be the main driver of Cartoon Network New Media's success, and we've surpassed 2 billion game plays annually for the past three years. FusionFall fulfills our goal of increasing the range of game play we offer, and we expect it to significantly expand our audience," said Paul Condolora, senior vice president and general manager of Cartoon Network New Media.Click on the links below to learn more about the upcoming game.
"One of the things we're most excited about in FusionFall is the game play," said Chris Waldron, executive producer of FusionFall. "With our audience and Cartoon Network characters, we knew we wanted to create a new kind of MMOG and develop a game that takes all the great action of popular console games and merges it with all the elements of MMORPGs that are so enticing to players."
The development of FusionFall is a first for the industry. Created through a partnership with leading Korean MMOG developer, Grigon Entertainment, the game brings Cartoon Network's beloved characters and sensibility to the fast-growing online gaming realm with an "East-meets-West" creative approach. Grigon Entertainment is best known for successfully developing and launching several online games in Asia, including Seal Online, a light-hearted role-playing game (RPG) that took the online gaming world by surprise.
