Cartoon Network: FusionFall Takes Kids on 3D Online Adventure to Defend the Cartoon Network Universe
Cartoon Network New Media along with its development partner, Grigon Entertainment, today announced the integration of the Unity Technologies game engine to create the first AAA, browser-based massively multiplayer online game (MMOG), Cartoon Network Universe: FusionFall. The use of the Unity’s game engine in FusionFall provides an unmatched online gaming experience for kids and tweens while supporting game-play on virtually any computer, PC or Mac.
“We are excited to bring the first AAA, browser-based MMOG for kids to the marketplace and expand the category of interactive casual gaming,” said Paul Condolora, senior vice president, digital for Turner Broadcasting System Inc.’s Animation, Young Adults and Kids Media Group. “Unity Technologies shares our vision of providing easily accessible, dynamic gaming experiences and we are pleased to deliver on this promise.”
As with all Unity-enabled games, FusionFall loads quickly via the browser, making game-play throughout the Cartoon Network universe seamless. The game offers the ease of use of a click and play browser-based game combined with the quality expected of today’s top notch MMOG titles.
“With Unity serving as the foundation for FusionFall, Cartoon Network has delivered a compelling title for young casual gamers containing exceptional content and breakthrough MMOG game capabilities,” said David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies. “For many young gamers, FusionFall will be their first experience playing online with thousands of others kids. From here on out-every other online game for kids will have to live up to the fun and excitement of FusionFall.”
FusionFall is a re-imagined and futuristic three-dimensional adventure set during an alien invasion of the Cartoon Network universe. Consisting of 60 play areas, FusionFall players team up with one another and Cartoon Network characters to defend the universe from an epic alien invasion. Launching this fall, the game targets the growing and sophisticated kids’ interactive gaming market and brings Cartoon Network’s beloved characters, stars of Ben 10: Alien Force, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Ed, Edd n Eddy, Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, and more, to the fast-growing online gaming realm.

PR Statement from Cartoon Network
Once again, I’m TOTALLY look forward to playing this. I know the pros & cons have been unique (I’ve heard peeps rant about the anime-look and the blend of artistic genres from Ed, Edd, and Eddy, to Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends to Power Puff Girls). They’ve been VERY concerned, and very specific about their safety protocol.
There’s a lot to be curious about!
I am uber-jazzed to dive in, and look forward to it highly! Many thanks to the CN folks for passing this gem along to me.
