Dr. Seuess’ The Grinch is set to make his first ever mobile video game appearance with the “Grinchmas” holiday takeover event on Jame City’s Panda Pop, which gets underway today and runs through to January 1st.
The title, in which players pop bubbles to save baby pandas, is getting Who-ified game artwork and levels, major Grinch in-game events with prizes, Grinch Gifts, a brand new Grinch costume for Mama Panda, a Grinch starter pack for all new players, and, last but not least, a Grinch Global Save the Babies event where players will team up to save 600 million panda babies and win prizes!
“It is a unique honor to be working with such a wonderfully nostalgic and iconic brand. When you combine the massive worldwide appeal of Dr. Seuss’s Grinch with one of the most delightful, creative puzzle games in the world, you have a recipe for holiday gaming magic,” said Josh Yguado, Co-Founder, President and COO of Jam City. “Our entire Panda Pop team’s hearts have grown three sizes at the chance to make this a special holiday season for our millions of players.”
“The Grinch’s whimsical tale has been a part of holiday traditions for sixty years now.” said Susan Brandt, President of Dr. Seuss Enterprises. “By organically featuring the Grinch in a compelling, interactive mobile game like Panda Pop, we can bring this familiar tale to fans in a completely new way.”
“Jam City and Panda Pop were at the top of our list when looking for a strong gaming partner to bring the Grinch to mobile platforms for the first time,” said Stephanie Sperber, CEO of White Space. Sean Haran, COO and Head of Games at White Space Entertainment, adds, “The game experience seamlessly integrates the Grinch in the Panda Pop world for a fun holiday celebration.”
