Fungoplay and Miniclip create online games partnership
Kid-targeting sports theme park and virtual world Fungoplay has joined forces with the world’s largest online game site Miniclip in a partnership that will see Miniclip allow access to Fungoplay games on its website from next week at www.miniclip.com/games/fungoplay.
Fungoplay, which targets kids ages six to 11, features customizable avatars and more than 30 single and multiplayer sports-themed games including basketball, baseball, soccer, football, and skateboarding for online and mobile platforms.
The site also promotes physical activity in kids by offering a “connected” sports gear option that monitors usage and rewards kids with points and power-ups for their real-world physical activity.
Miniclip, which develops, publishes and distributes more than 750 games and was founded in 2001, features a humorous online sports world, funny characters, customizable avatars, rewards and achievements.
Fungoplay is the brainchild of start-up expert Steven Lerner, David Jacobs (Sesame Workshop, HIT Entertainment), and kids writer and franchise director Fabian Nicieza (X-Men, Hot Wheels, Transformers).
