Disney Takes Interactive Animal Kingdom to Facebook

Palo Alto, CA, USA (April 10, 2012) /PRNewswire/ — Disney Interactive today announced Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers, a social game inspired by The Walt Disney Company’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, is now live on Facebook. Developed by Disney Social Games, Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers is a hidden object game that provides players with a social, ecologically minded play experience.

“Animal lovers will flock to Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers to build their personal nature preserves around the iconic Tree of Life,” said John Spinale, Senior Vice President of Social Games, Disney Interactive. “As we continue to bring the magic of Disney to social gaming, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park offers the perfect backdrop to build the most beautiful hidden object game on Facebook.”

In Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers, players become part of the Global Wildlife Research team, an international organization of conservationists, environmentalists and naturalists. Appealing to a broad base of consumers who have an affinity for animals, nature and exploratory travel, Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers brings players into the heart of the jungle without having to leave home. Players can create and nurture their own wildlife preserve and search for hidden objects in spectacular natural settings from the Rocky Mountains, to the Amazon Rainforest, to the Australian Outback. Two of the game’s locations will be particularly familiar to Disney fans, as Harambe and Anandapur draw inspiration directly from Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

Continuing to build on Playdom’s success in the hidden object genre, Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers incorporates a deeper game narrative and ecologically-minded game play. Players are encouraged to be conscious of the needs of animals and their habitats: placing animals who cohabitate well next to each other will earn the player extra points.

In the coming months, Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers will continue to expand with ongoing content releases. Players can look forward to new exotic locations, quests, and more animals.

Your quest awaits! Social gamers, animal enthusiasts and Disney fans alike can begin the adventure now. Visit http://www.facebook.com/disneyanimalkingdom.
