Teletoon launches two mobile apps
Humans vs. Vampires from Secret Location and Find the Earl from Marblemedia are extensions of the Teletoon series My Babysitter's a Vampire and Skatoony.
Teletoon has launched two mobile apps based on two of its teen series, My Babysitter’s a Vampire and Skatoony.
The apps, launched ad-free, will generate revenue through one-time purchases, either in-app or through the App Store.
iPhone and iPod touch app Humans vs. Vampires, based on the online game of the same name, was developed by Toronto-based interactive agency Secret Location and launched Aug. 31 to coincide with the second season premiere of My Babysitter’s a Vampire Sept. 6 on Teletoon.
The badge system game lets users play as either a human or vampire, as with the online game, through five levels and five different opponents.
The game is free to download, with a one-time 99 cent in-app upgrade that lets players unlock five “good guys” and five undead characters.
Find The Earl is developed by marblemedia and based on the company’s Skatoony, an animation and live-action kids trivia show, and can be purchased through the App Store for $1.99.
It features the show’s host Chudd Chudders travelling around the world to rescue co-host The Earl and save the show from being cancelled.
“Teletoon is always looking at innovative ways to integrate sponsorship opportunities into each of our digital touchpoints,” says Gavin Friesen, director, interactive, Teletoon Canada. “While these apps have already been launched ad-free, we are absolutely interested in exploring ways to work with sponsors on future projects.”
