Heroes of the world unite! Little Space Heroes now available in 13 languages
Sydney, Australia 9th July 2012 – Independent Children’s Entertainment developer Bubble Gum Interactive has extended the number of languages available for its acclaimed virtual universe Little Space Heroes, which is now available in 13 languages, leading the charge in building a truly global kids community.
In this free-to-play online game, kids create their own hero, strap on their jetpacks, fire up their starjets and blast off on an intergalactic adventure. Featuring character personalisation, solo and team gameplay, pets, quests, player homes and community activities, Little Space Heroes offers a safe, fun and ever-evolving gaming experience.
Little Space Heroes now provides its public website experience and in-game menu chat communication in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, German, Italian, Polish, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Japanese, Hindi as well as in English. The in-game menu chat automatically translates questions, answers and phrases between languages, facilitating instant, clear and safe communication. For example, a player in Vietnam can use the expression “Chào các người hùng!” which will appear to players in Spain as “¡Hola héroes!” and players in Poland as “Pozdrowienia bohaterowie!”
“It’s our goal to make Little Space Heroes the #1 virtual universe for kids and families worldwide. With our new language updates, we’re able to provide a better experience for kids to play, share and interact with friends from all over the world. This further enhances our inclusive, vibrant and diverse virtual universe.” said Paul Gray, Community Director.
Little Space Heroes’ innovative chat systems utilise both dynamic filtered and menu chat options. With the latest update, the menu chat offers a kids across the globe to engage in multi-lingual conversations across 13 languages. With Russian and Arabic soon to come, Little Space Heroes will offer more languages than any other virtual world for kids.
The English dynamic Safe Chat option uses best-in-class filtering to ensure a safe experience. In addition, the virtual universe is moderated by a dedicated, in-house team. Little Space Heroes has secured more independent safety and content-suitability endorsements than most virtual worlds including COPPA compliant kidSAFE+ Certification, the Family Friendly Videogames.com Seal of Approval, Creative Child Magazine’s 2012 Game of the Year, a Parents’ Choice Approved Award as well as ESRB E for Everyone and PEGI-OK Ratings.
“From Tokyo to Toronto, Manilla to Manchester and Delhi to Dallas, kids everywhere are looking for fun, adventure filled virtual worlds. We always strive be the best and so we’ve worked very hard to bring our game experience to our fans no matter where they live or what language they speak. The language options also benefit parents browsing the site to learn more about Little Space Heroes as a family-friendly totally awesome experience.” said CEO Phillip Mason.
