Game Pill to create international Adventure Supergame

Toronto, Canada – May 16, 2012 – Leading game developer Game Pill is creating a new side-scrolling adventure Supergame based on the international hit children’s animated comedy series Almost Naked Animals, produced and distributed by 9 Story Entertainment.
Joyously irreverent, Almost Naked Animals features an oddly lovable assortment of free-spirited animals in their underwear running a beach-front hotel like kids at a summer camp – doing their best to make each day more fun than the last. Lead dog and hotel manager Howie, heads the comically dysfunctional ensemble cast.

“We’re really excited to be bringing 9 Story’s hugely popular Almost Naked Animals brand to the interactive game world. The supergame will be a robust adventure, fully tied into the mayhem and fun of the tv series, adding a new level of enjoyment for its loyal fans,” said Michael Sorrenti, President (mad scientist), Game Pill Inc.

“We are delighted to be working with the talented team at Game Pill on this perfectly targeted expansion of the Almost Naked Animals brand engagement,” said Vince Commisso, President & CEO of 9 Story Entertainment.

The platform game will give players the chance to become part of the crazy world of Almost Naked Animals by choosing one of the quirky characters to run their very own tropical hotel and compete to become the bestest hotel on the strip. With unexpected twists and turns, the Almost Naked Animals game will bring the wackiness of the TV series to the gaming world, for kids of all ages to enjoy (that means you Mom and Dad).

Named one of the top children’s shows to watch by People Magazine, Almost Naked Animals, now in its 3rd season, airs on Cartoon Network US, YTV Canada, CiTV UK, ABC Australia, Disney Channel Italy, Disney Channel India, Disney Channel Latin America, Disney Channel Spain and Portugal, NPO’s children’s channel Z@pp/Zeppelin in the Netherlands, Super RTL Germany, Canal+ Family and TéléTOON+.
