IRVINE, Calif. - April 27, 2010 - Calling all heroes: The wait is finally over! It's time to report to your computer screens as Gamania Digital Entertainment is offering gamers a first look at Hero: 108 Online, the massively multi-player online game(MMOG) that was inspired by the like-named Cartoon Network series, Hero: 108. The cute and colorful MMOG is inching closer to closed beta testing (CBT) this May, and the CBT key giveaway is players' earliest shot at joining in.
"This teen-centric free-to-play online video game was developed to ease young gamers graduating from casual games into the exciting world of MMOs" said David Wong, COO, Gamania Digital Entertainment (US) Co., Ltd. "Hero: 108's Cartoon Network series fans and teens ready for the next step in gaming will enjoy this opportunity to play Hero:108 Online."
Gamania's Creative Center developed the storyline for Hero: 108 as a unique graphic interpretation of the 14th Century Chinese novel "The Water Margin Stories," an epic clash of spirits, outlaws and emperors. In the core storyline of Hero: 108, humans and animals lived together in harmony until High Roller, a malicious character, was unceremoniously banished from the Eastern capital. Fate, often a playful catalyst, intervened and High Roller was struck by lightning - in turn bestowing him with the amazing ability to speak to animals. With his new powers, High Roller brainwashed his new furry friends into believing that humans are evil - and began his plans to take revenge against those who exiled him.
Hero: 108 Online is part of the first ever cross-platform collaboration between industry leaders Gamania Digital Entertainment, Cartoon Network, Moonscoop Entertainment, and Playmates Toys. In addition to the MMOG, The multi-platform entertainment experience for kids and teens includes an animated television seriesco-produced by Cartoon Network and Moonscoop Entertainment. There will also be a distinctive line of consumer products with collectable Hero: 108 toys, in partnership with Playmates Toys, hitting store shelves later in the year.
