New social game inspired by Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park includes natural picturesque scenes, hundreds of animals and the Tree of Life
Disney Interactive has announced that Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers, a social game inspired by The Walt Disney Company's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, is now live on Facebook. In Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers, developed by Disney Social Games, players become part of the Global Wildlife Research team, an international organization of conservationists, environmentalists and naturalists. Appealing to a broad base of consumers who have an affinity for animals, nature and exploratory travel, Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers brings players into the heart of the jungle without having to leave home. Players can create and nurture their own wildlife preserve and search for hidden objects in spectacular natural settings from the Rocky Mountains, to the Amazon Rainforest, to the Australian Outback. Two of the game's locations will be particularly familiar to Disney fans, as Harambe and Anandapur draw inspiration directly from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers incorporates a deeper game narrative and ecologically-minded game play. Players are encouraged to be conscious of the needs of animals and their habitats: placing animals who cohabitate well next to each other will earn the player extra points.
In the coming months, Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers will continue to expand with ongoing content releases. Players can look forward to new exotic locations, quests, and more animals.
