Hyper Hippo Productions is Thrilled to Announce Mech Mice
Kids Lead a Squad of Unlikely Heroes in a New Tactical Strategy Game Releasing this Fall
KELOWNA, British Columbia, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Hyper Hippo Productions officially announces Mech Mice, a turn-based, tactical squad game featuring a rich storyline set in a mysterious world. Hyper Hippo, a new digital entertainment studio formed by two of the leading minds behind Disney’s Club Penguin, has teamed with Oktobor Animation, producer of children’s animation for Emmy award-winning shows, to bring the world of Mech Mice to personal devices everywhere. The browser-based game will be available for Mac and PC this fall, followed by mobile platforms later in 2013.
Created for fans ages ten and up, Mech Mice challenges players to build their own squad of “Mech Mice” and help defend their way of life against the invading armies of the villainous Dark Union. Within the world of Mech Mice, fans will engage in a safe community while leading their squads through a series of fun and challenging levels that incorporate turn-based strategy, skill management and the collection of digital action figures.
With Mech Mice and beyond, Hyper Hippo is committed to championing the future of online safety. “It is our goal to create safe places for kids to play online, while also encouraging a positive real world impact,” said Lance Priebe, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Development Officer at Hyper Hippo.
Hyper Hippo seeks to establish a trusted relationship with parents built on safety and transparency, while also pioneering its strong dedication to social responsibility. “In addition to online community benefits, we are excited to partner with some inspiring organizations, which provide our community with the ability to give back offline to less fortunate kids around the world,” said Pascale Audette, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Hyper Hippo. “Hyper Hippo will donate a free Mech Mice ‘All Access Game Account’ to various children’s support programs around the world for every pre-order purchase received during the games open beta phase… and that’s just the beginning!”
Mech Mice is currently in closed beta and will officially enter open beta on July 9, 2013. For more information, visit www.mechmice.com. Videos and screenshots showing off the game can be found on Mech Mice’s social channels: Facebook.com/mechmice, Twitter.com/mechmice, and YouTube.com/mechmice.
