Modern Media Ventures today announced the signing of an agreement to license two titles to Bandai Digital Entertainment (BDE) for their launch of Pippin @World Player. BDE will license "Gus Goes to Cyberopolis" and "Gus Goes to the Kooky Carnival(TM)", two award-winning titles from MMV's highly acclaimed Learning Adventure Series(TM) CD-ROMs.
Developed jointly with Apple Computer, Bandai's Pippin @World contains a CD-ROM player that converts a television into a multimedia entertainment center that plays a wide variety of CD-ROM software, provides access to the Internet, e-mail, word processing and more. "Bandai Digital Entertainment is glad to be working with Modern Media Ventures in bringing their titles to the Pippin platform," said John McGanty, Senior Manager of Software Marketing. "They have a variety of outstanding titles that are well suited for families, the target audience of Pippin @World. In addition to these first two titles for Pippin, we are in discussions about working with Modern Media on other titles, including products for Windows and Mac as well."
Modern Media will showcase its Pippin ready titles on a Pippin @World Player at the Children's Interactive Expo, held October 3-6, 1996 in San Francisco. The Children's Interactive Expo was chosen for this exciting debut because it provides direct access to a target audience of thousands of students, teachers, industry players, children and their parents.
The two titles from Modern Media Ventures' Gus and the CyberBuds Learning Adventure Series have gained considerable recognition in the past year. Selected titles have earned the following distinction: Newsweek Editors' Choice Top 50 Picks Parents' Guide to Software '96; Member's Choice Award for Early Learning from Club KidSoft; Four Stars from Electronic Entertainment and One of the top 100 CD-ROMs on C|Net Central. Modern Media Ventures also hosts an award-winning web site that features downloadable games, activities and other new information at http://www.gustown.com.
