The worldwide smash hit animated TV show is getting a new game release in 2014
Fans of Jake the Dog and Finn the Human will get to experience the magical world of Ooo first-hand this Autumn according to Cartoon Network. In partnership with games publishers Little Orbit, plans for two new games have been announced this week. Alongside an Adventure Time game there will also be a multi-property game drawing from characters across Cartoon Network’s original series.
The planned games releases follow the success of Little Orbit's Falling Skies Planetary Warfare mobile game, an adaptation of the hit show from Cartoon Network’s sister channel TNT, which will also be making it to consoles this year.
Pete Yoder, vice president of consumer products for Cartoon Network Enterprises told the press, “Working with Little Orbit to create the Falling Skies game has been a great experience and from that, we’re excited to extend our partnership this year and develop new games based on some of the most popular characters and brands in the Cartoon Network portfolio,”
Whilst we’ve nothing to show you as yet we’re very excited by the prospect of a new Adventure Time game. The cartoon which first officially aired in 2010 grew from a viral sensation into a highly popular series and succeeds, as The Simpson’s does, in offering a broad appeal to both children and adults. As fans of Adventure Time will know well the series is rich with references to fantasy role play games and has grown to legendary cult status - celebrated for it’s surreal comedy, mad cap action and lovable well-realised characters.
A previous Adventure Time game entitled Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don't Know! was released across the platforms last year although it wasn't well received due to some repetitive gameplay and a lacklustre treatment of the characters. With Cartoon Network onboard for the new game we're hoping it will get the care and attention it deserves.
If you’ve not seen Adventure Time we suggest you check it out it’s great fun and a really well made cartoon series. We’ll be keeping a close eye on this one and will report as we know more.
