The digital media division of Breakthrough Entertainment has started production on a series of online games for the company’s upcoming animated series Rocket Monkeys, which is set to premiere on Teletoon next year.
Through three games titled “Monkeys vs. Gorillas,” “Monkey Business” and “Monkeys on a Mission” – Rocket Monkeys Online targets the same demographic as the series, 6-11 year olds. All three games will be available in English and French on www.teletoon.com, with “Monkeys vs. Gorillas” launching in January 2013 at the same time as the series premieres, and the other two games rolling out during the broadcast season.
In the Rocket Monkeys games, kids can blast other kids into outer space with Monkeynauts, Gus and Wally and join them in a series of fun-filled space adventures by helping them out of their latest scrape, piloting their big orange rocket ship through strange new worlds and tussling with a whole host of rivals and villains.
Showcasing state-of-the-art 2D animation by Toronto’s Atomic Cartoons, Rocket Monkeys centers on the optimistic Wally and brainy Gus, best friends and NOSA-trained monkeynauts who explore new life forms, use techno gadgets and fight rogue black holes and evil space pirates in this fun-filled comedy series.
