Independent children’s entertainment developer Bubble Gum Interactive has announced that production has commenced on a series of short-form cartoons based on its popular Little Space Heroes virtual universe. The virtual universe is a family-friendly online game for kids worldwide and can be played for free at www.littlespaceheroes.com.
The cartoons introduce viewers to the back story of Little Space Heroes, before kids from the internet are asked to join as Space Hero Cadets. In the prelude, Ace, Professor Q, Gizmo the robot and friends embark on an intergalactic adventure to rescue the glows (small creatures with big powers!). Together, they pit themselves against the ‘I-wish-I-was-more-evil’ Lord Shadowbot and his long suffering sidekicks who plan to steal all the glows and bring darkness to the galaxy.
“We are super excited to be able to produce the backstory,” said Executive Producer Phillip Mason, Bubble Gum Interactive “It provides a great opportunity to give our audience insights into why they are out their training as Space Heroes and searching for the villainous Lord Shadowbot. Being able to build on the story and sense of jeopardy using cartoons as a medium is awesome, and hopefully kids everywhere will work even harder to find Shadowbot and rescue the glows as fast as they can!”
