OK K.O.! Lakewood Plaza Turbo New Mobile Game Released Today

Cartoon Network has released a new free game for iOS and Android devices today called OK K.O.! Lakewood Plaza Turbo, the game originated as a pilot episode known as “Lakewood Plaza Turbo” which was created by Ian Jones-Quartey, known for his production work on Steven Universe, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, Adventure Time and The Venture Bros. Set in the year 201X, the story of Lakewood Plaza Turbo follows a young fighting champion named K.O. who battles with Lord Boxman and his army of robots to destroy a local strip mall. Meanwhile, K.O.’s mom, Carol, is always teaching him new fighting techniques. Cartoon Network Studios will also open the game’s intellectual property to 200 independent developers through a Cartoon Network Game Jam innovation festival, the festival will be held between Friday 12th February and Sunday 14th February in Portland, Oregon, USA.

Cartoon Network president and general manager Christina Miller made this statement regarding the usage of other forms of media rather than just animation to appeal to audiences and opening up source code can help develop new ideas:

“This is definitely a first for us, opening up the process and bringing in a group of leading mobile game developers, Open-source behavior really speaks to our overarching strategy in driving creative expression and innovation for our brand in different ways and really looking at content in a unique way, not a standard, linear way. I think some things we’ve learned about this audience is that they demand choice and control whereas the millennial generation that came before needed greater filters—point me in this direction, and give me this list. This generation, the plurals, 17 and under, they really see it as choice and control—give me everything, and I will sort through it. They’ve grown up in an environment where there’s always been networks for them, so they expect extensions on every single platform.”

From The Turner UK Press Release

Cartoon Network has launched its latest Adventure Time mobile game, BMO Snaps, where users can play as BMO and help Princess Bubblegum build a holographic encyclopedia (holopedia) about the history of Ooo and its inhabitants.

The BMO Snaps game starts off with a mishap at the hologram factory, when some of Princess Bubblegum’s hair gets caught in the machine and gums up the works. The machine malfunctions, duplicating the holograms and setting them loose on the world causing mischief and confusion. Princess Bubblegum realises the only way to stop them is by taking photos of them, so she sends BMO on a photo “scavenger hunt” to snap pictures of all the Adventure Time characters and clean up her mess.

The app also features a photo booth where fans can decorate their own selfies with the Adventure Time-themed stickers they’ve collected in the in-game sticker book. The selfie shots will also save right to their tablet devices so fans can post and share them on their social media accounts.

Created by Pendleton Ward and produced by Cartoon Network Studios, Adventure Time season six is currently airing across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Tune in to catch Adventure Time every day at 5pm on Cartoon Network.

Christopher Waldron, vice president of Cartoon Network Digital explained that VR can be a tool to re-invent cartoon storytelling and Adventure Time’s creative team are looking for new innovative ways to entertain fans:

“The Adventure Time creators are all early adopters and enthusiasts in this space themselves and have a reputation for re-inventing storytelling, so during key phases of development we provided builds for them to review and give feedback. Pen Ward, the creator of Adventure Time, even jumped in and provided voiceover.”

Christina Miller, president and general manager of Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and Boomerang explained that gamers and animation fans are looking for new entertainment experiences and want to play in an interactive world based on their favourite animated shows:

“Embarking on these new VR projects has been a great creative exercise for us. We are experimenting and learning new ways of creating content that will engage our fans and tell stories that are completely different than what we have done on any other platforms in the past. Our fans aren’t just looking through a window into these worlds; they’re able to climb through that window and be in these worlds”
