Some of the minds behind LittleBigPlanet, Fable and RiME are about to open on iPhone and iPad a new universe of creation and play.
Madrid, Spain & Guildford, UK – Nov. 1st, 2017 – Tequila Works has partnered with Guildford-based developer Glowmade to release WonderWorlds, an action-adventure game for iPad and iPhone in which players are game makers.
WonderWorlds is a game of play, discovery, and imagination. It’s a place to play unlimited numbers of usercreated levels and stories, and it comes with simple, intuitive and powerful game creation tools to set imaginations free, and the ability for creators to share their works across the globe. WonderWorlds offers endless opportunities for game creation. Players can customise their characters with outfits, decorations and even their own photos. They can design rich and reactive worlds, with objects to collect, environments to climb, jump and run through, chests to open, and puzzles to solve. They can then share their creations seamlessly and instantly through the WonderClub, where players browse new worlds to play. They can even construct inspired, crazy and expressive screenshots and videos to post on Twitter, Facebook and beyond.
WonderWorlds’ technology was developed by one of the creators of the revolutionary editing tools in LittleBigPlanet, and it’s built to take advantage of the latest Apple technologies, harnessing the graphical power of Metal, allowing players to draw their creations with Apple Pencil, and to share their levels directly with friends and family through iMessage.
“WonderWorlds is about playing, making and exploring. But above all, it is about discovery. Most of us don’t know it but there’s this creative spark inside all of us and all we need is the right way of finding it. Since it turns out that our iPhones and iPads are these ridiculous supercomputers, they’re perfect for discovering the beautiful universe of WonderWorlds and for adding to them all our own touches of magic. We can’t wait to see what players make!” said Jonny Hopper, CEO and co-founder of Glowmade.
“Making games is hard, but WonderWorlds by Glowmade manages to turn this complex process into something simple, accessible and fun for everyone. WonderWorlds is more than a game: it’s a platform to create your own games and play, share and enjoy them everywhere. With WonderWorlds, making games is easy!” said Raúl Rubio Munárriz, CEO and creative director of publisher Tequila Works.
WonderWorlds will be free to download, giving access to level-building tools, a limited number of community-made levels from WonderWorlds’ ever-growing library, and five levels created by the
Glowmade team, each built on an iPhone with the exactly the same tools that players get to use. The $3.99/€4.49/£3.99 WonderBundle unlocks loads more Glowmade levels, unlimited community levels, and tonnes of costumes, stickers, outfits and other materials to make even richer and more beautiful worlds.
And the launch is just the start. As players explore WonderWorlds’ potential, it will expand with new content and many new features. Follow us on www.wonderworlds.me, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
