Everybody’s favourite pineapple dweller is venturing into the Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming world.
Viacom International Media Networks and leading Asian online games company GigaMedia Limited today announced new developments around the first MMOG based upon the wildly popular SpongeBob Squarepants. SpongeBob and his unique charm has resulted in not only children loving him. Adults like myself regularly switch on Nickelodeon to be entertained by SpongeBob himself, along with of course Patrick, Squidward, and the rest of the crew. The thought of wandering around Bikini Bottom as one of the characters is ridiculously exciting.
The free-to-play version of the game will offer an online store where players can purchase a range of items so they can customize their experience, as well as video and Flash-based games.
The game will first launch in Taiwan in 2012, then in multiple languages for players in China, Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia and India. GigaMedia today announced that the game will also be published in Europe, Russia, and Latin America.
Full details of the game’s content, objectives, customization and much more will be announced in 2012. What can I say? I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready . . .
