Kutoka Interactive of Montreal is eagerly anticipating the release of its first CD-ROMs. The year-old developer is producing Cyber Grannies for Wonder Tools of San Francisco and The Cassandra Galleries for Corel Corporation of Ottawa.
For children 3 to 7, Cyber Grannies features a 3-D world for each letter of the alphabet. Each world in this vocabulary-learning title includes hidden objects and an activity, starting with the letter of the world, and is hosted by a granny whose profession also begins with the appropriate letter.
In The Cassandra Galleries, players 12 and older solve puzzles or simply follow the story to locate the missing wealthy recluse William Cassandra and his daughter, Maya.
Both are edutainment titles, and Kutoka wants to make this area its niche, says Richard Vincent, creative director.
Cyber Grannies will launch for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 in late summer, while The Cassandra Galleries will hit shelves in the fall for Windows and Macintosh.
