SYDNEY, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Space Heroes Universe! the multi-award winning virtual world from Bubble Gum Interactive has rocketed past the one million registered players milestone less than twelve months after launch. The pace of growth is accelerating and Bubble Gum Interactive expects this to continue into 2013.
"We're over the moon to have achieved this significant milestone in such a short time. With so many Space Heroes out exploring, Shadowbot and his minions better beware!" Said Phil Mason, CEO Bubble Gum Interactive "It's great to see community growth like this ahead of the Festive Season, and we've got some amazing updates and features in store for our fans heading into the new year, including new planets to explore, mobile games and cartoons!"
Based on an original IP, rated E for Everyone and certified kidSAFE+, Space Heroes Universe! serves a global audience and can be played in thirteen languages. Every day tens of thousands of players from over 100 countries blast off for adventure. Not only has the game shown incredible traction with kids and families, it's also claimed a suite of independent awards and accolades including the Creative Child Magazine Game of the Year 2012, Parents Choice Approved Seal and Mom's Choice Silver Award amongst others.
With the rapidly growing fan base, Bubble Gum Interactive is also pleased to announce the launch of prepaid game cards in Australia, New Zealand and Brazil. Launching in early December in over 500 retail locations including EB Games, Toys R Us, The Warehouse and Saravia, the game cards will give fans a convenient new way to upgrade to premium membership. Space Heroes Universe! game cards will launch in more stores and countries through 2013.
To celebrate the milestone, Space Heroes fans are being gifted with a limited edition Space Suit and a "million heroes" badge through the end of November.
Much more than a virtual world, Space Heroes Universe! lets kids create their own Space Hero and embark on an epic story-driven intergalactic adventure. Along the way, players can personalise their hero, adopt pet Kritterz, make new friends and explore an ever expanding galaxy full of quests, fun and adventure as they search for the dastardly Lord Shadowbot.
