Cartoon Network's first massively multiplayer online game, FusionFall, is available today. Aimed at fans of the network and younger gamers, FusionFall was designed to be easy to play for all skill levels. The game incorporates more than 50 characters from various Cartoon Network shows, including Ben 10, Alien Force, Dexter’s Laboratory, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Ed, Edd’ n Eddy, The Powerpuff Girls, Kids Next Door, and Samurai Jack. With its accessibility and dozens of popular characters, Cartoon Network has high hopes for the game. In a recent press release, Paul Condolora, senior vice president of Turner Broadcasting System Inc.’s animation, young adults and kids media group, said:
There is a free version of FusionFall available to gamers through the game's site. Subscriptions run $5.95 a month for individuals; $9.95 a month for families. Players that opt to pick up the $19.95 Victory Pack available at retail outlets will receive a four-month subscription to the online game, an in-depth game guide, and codes for two exclusive outfit and weapon sets.
I haven't touched the game since March 2008, so I'm not really sure how it has been progressing. Back then it looked okay; I was mildly intrigued by the game's platforming aspects, but was not overly impressed with what I played. However, the popularity of these Cartoon Network franchises can't be denied and FusionFall is sure to get lots of attention.
Have any of you been playing the beta? What do you think so far? For those of you that haven't played it yet and are Cartoon Network fans, do you have any interest in this game?
