After five years of intergalactic adventure, we’re going to be closing Space Heroes Universe. The game originally launched in 2011 and since that time over five million players have blasted off for an adventure in the highly acclaimed and multi-award winning game.
The game introduced many innovative features into the virtual world space, and gave kids a fun and exciting way to have fun, learn about science and the universe and make new friends in a safe online community. The game achieved the highest ratings for quality and safety and won numerous awards. We were particularly proud that many of our team of designers, developers and artists got their first professional experience working on the game and we continue to be active proponents of the Australian game design and development community. We also enjoyed the opportunity to work with schools and universities to help give students an insight into the game development process.
With the shift in gaming to tablets and mobile devices, the demand for rich, immersive story-driven games like Space Heroes continues but the platforms must adapt. For this reason we’ll be closing the game on 29th January 2015, however the Space Heroes Universe brand will continue on and we look forward to sharing exciting news about new mobile iterations in the future.
Bubble Gum Interactive continues its focus on producing great creative games and we now have three mobile games available – Jetpack Jinx, Cake Bake Blitz, All Stars Tennis and our first licensed game, Wild Grinders Downhill Grind. In 2015 we’ll be releasing new titles and exciting updates to our games portfolio.
From all the team who worked on Space Heroes Universe we thank you for joining us on an incredible adventure and we look forward to sharing more fun and delightful games with you in future. It was incredibly inspiring to hear from fans and we hope you’ll have as many special memories as we do.
Now, there’s a whole galaxy to explore. Let’s go!
