NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ — Sparkworkz is working with Lionsgate and Crest Animation Studios Ltd. on the video game adaptation based on their new animated family feature, Alpha and Omega 3-D. The film is scheduled to hit the big screen on September 17, 2010, which features the voices of Justin Long, Hayden Panettiere, Dennis Hopper, Danny Glover, Larry Miller and Christina Ricci.
Sparkworkz has specialized in bringing together and developing the best casual games the internet has to offer such as Line Rider, Fantastic Contraption, Impossible Quiz, and soon to be released Platform Racing 3. They are now bringing their fun ‘pick up and play’ attitude to the game adaptation of Alpha and Omega.
“We are pleased to be working on a game for a major animation release from Lionsgate,” says Founder and CEO Brian Fargo. “The visual quality of the film, the writing and the humor of Alpha and Omega makes for a perfect fit with the video game business.”
“Alpha and Omega 3-D is our first theatrical release with Lionsgate and we are enthusiastic to partner up with Sparkworkz for the video game adaptation,” said Noah Fogelson, CEO of Crest Animation Productions. “The video game couldn’t have been a better fit for the film,” added Ken Katsumoto, Lionsgate’s Executive Vice President of Family Entertainment.
Sparkworkz is currently in development of Alpha and Omega with their partner Storm City Games for the Nintendo DS™ version in North America. Sparkworkz also plans to release an iPhone version as well. The game is set to release alongside the movie this September. Alpha and Omega will feature a story mode with various fun games drawn from the plot of the movie. You can expect to see playful wolves, golfing geese, and hear lots of howling thru the DS microphone.
ABOUT ALPHA AND OMEGA 3-D
What makes for the ultimate road trip? Hitchhiking, truck stops, angry bears, prickly porcupines and a golfing goose with a duck caddy. Just ask Kate and Humphrey, two wolves who are trying to get home after being taken by park rangers and shipped halfway across the country. Humphrey is an Omega wolf, whose days are about quick wit, snappy one-liners and hanging with his motley crew of fun-loving wolves and video-gaming squirrels. Kate is an Alpha: duty, discipline and sleek Lara Croft eye-popping moves fuel her fire. Humphrey’s motto – make ‘em laugh. Kate’s motto – I’m the boss. And they have a thousand miles to go.
Back home rival wolf packs are on the march and conflict is brewing. Only Kate and Humphrey can restore the peace. But first, they have to survive each other. A Lionsgate and Crest Animation presentation.
