New Online Virtual World Allows Children to Travel, Learn and Have Fun
Exploring our planet and beyond in an exciting, positive and interactive way is what The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World promises - a joint venture between John Bittleston & Eliza Quek and MediaFreaks Cartoon Pte Ltd.
Based on a popular children story book series by John Bittleston, the virtual world promises an experience in which players will be able to travel to dozens of factual and imaginary locations around the world, learn about history and culture, meet famous people from the past, solve puzzles and mysteries and have great fun while doing all these.
Commenting on the joint venture, John Bittleston said, “The aim of expanding children’s knowledge and enjoyment of the world is what prompted me to write the original books. The internet is the ideal medium for launching them into today’s modern media in a way that is exciting and challenging. With 187 books potentially still to go there is no shortage of wonderful treasures and thrilling adventures to look forward to.”
Eliza Quek added, “The highly novel way in which the MediaFreaks team has developed this into a whole new playing experience will ensure the success of this lively development.”
Heading the project – Aldric Chang （http://www.aldricchang.com), Managing Director of MediaFreaks – pointed out that John’s innovative idea of discovering the world through living maps in the original stories was what made him excited about the property and the endless creative possibilities that can stem from it. A producer of several cartoon properties and hundreds of animation projects, he said, “Cartoon characters have fired the imagination of children for a long time but it is only the advent of the internet that has transformed games from being simply time-passing to aiding discovery and invention.”
