Virtual World For Kids Looks For Cross Platform Collaborations
In less than 6 months, a brand new virtual world for kids will launch to children worldwide. Already gaining traction and buzz online, it is looking for cross platform collaborations in the form of animation, video games and publications.
Businessman John Bittleston, master trainer Eliza Quek and creative entrepreneur Aldric Chang gave birth to The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World ( http://www.wiglingtonandwenks.com ) – a massive online virtual world for children which aims to transport players on a breathtaking tour not just of our world as it is today but also back through the past and forward into the future.
Based on a children's story book series by John Bittleston, the virtual world promises an experience in which players w ill 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 of these.
MediaFreaks has designed the games within the virtual world to challenge and nurture children's knowledge and quick thinking. It has also structured an environment in which children can explore freely and safely while being encouraged to extend their natural creative talents through activities like decorating their own islands and building houses from different countries.
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.”
Heading the project, Aldric Chang, Founder and Managing Director of MediaFreaks said, “There is massive potential in cross platform opportunities for The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks . The background story is rich and educational, backed by a cast of well-designed and engaging characters. The virtual world will provide the perfect platform from which to create animated series, video games and publications based on the intellectual property. We welcome all interested parties to contact us for collaborative inquiries.”
