Starship, the Liverpool-based digital media, technology and entertainment studio, today unveil a further teaser for Playworld® Superheroes, its mobile game in which players use their imaginations to design, customise, and then become a superhero of their own creation. Inspiring endless creativity for gamers of all ages through real-time crafting, Playworld Superheroes is the first in a series of mobile adventures.
Designed to provide gamers aged 5+ with a safe playing experience free from in-app fees and hidden dangers, Playworld invites players to enter a world in which their imagination unlocks a new world of possibility. Crafting and creativity combine with eco-messages against the backdrop of a Hollywood spectacle, as players are transported from the everyday world into a land that only children can enter. Each chapter of super-powered playtime begins in the Playworld treehouse, a crafting hub in which the game’s themes are realised. The first in the series sees the player take on the role of a superhero, battling against the mischievous Golumites: a mob of alien nasties on a mission to destroy Playworld! Players must defeat playful enemies on the ground in intense moment-to-moment action, jumping back to the real world to craft new tools and gadgets to level up their powers. Would-be heroes then take to the skies to overcome their greatest challenge yet. Armed only with their imagination, the player must skip between two worlds to save them both in a Hollywood blockbuster of their own creation.
Playworld Superheroes launches on iOS devices in January, 2015.
