SAN DIEGO, Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Seuss Enterprises, a global leader in children's entertainment, today announced the official launch of its newly minted Roblox digital game, Seuss World, created in partnership with SkyReacher Entertainment, a leading game development studio creating immersive game content that connects and engages audiences. The game, a fully-immersive pet-simulator game inspired by Dr. Seuss's popular book If I Ran the Circus, is available on Roblox and accessible on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, and Xbox One devices.
Seuss World features a variety of mini-games that players must complete to gather in-game currency for hatching and collecting virtual pets, which are inspired by popular Dr. Seuss characters such as Horton, The Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2, Yertle the Turtle, and more. Activities include obstacle challenges like tight ropes, mazes, high dives, cannonballs, slides, and gathering up items throughout the world. Players complete the activities in several zones, each featuring familiar Seussian icons such as The Circus McGurkus and the colorful truffula trees, while wearing the Cat's iconic stovepipe hat.
"We hope to reach new audiences with this fun and challenging Dr. Seuss game on Roblox," said Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises. "SkyReacher has been an incredible partner and their creative talents are well showcased in this unique game."
"This is truly a defining moment for our studio, and we couldn't have found a better partner than Dr. Seuss Enterprises to help bring their first game to the immersive digital world of Roblox," commented Brad Crayton, COO, SkyReacher Entertainment. "We know Roblox players will love the creativity we've brought from the famed Dr. Seuss brand into the digital world and we are proud to have been selected as the development studio partner to deliver this first game."
"What makes Roblox such an engaging platform is the diversity of the online experiences our developers imagine, create, and share with millions of players all over the world," said Matthew Curtis, vice president of developer relations at Roblox. "We think it's awesome how SkyReacher has brought the iconic and imaginative world of Dr. Seuss to life in the digital world and believe the Roblox community will feel the same way."
