This month, Worldwide Biggies Inc., the digital entertainment studio helmed by family entertainment hit-maker Albie Hecht, is introducing its latest animated character sensation Bigby, a 9-year-old genius who believes that 96% of all bad things in the world are caused by pirates and dragons and it's his job to stop them. Bigby will make his debut as part of a new mobile game application, Bigby: L.A.P.D. which will be available for download on both iPhone and iTouch on October 28th for 99 cents. Additionally, a flash version of the game will be simultaneously launching on Addicting Games, the largest online games site in the U.S.
Hecht, who was recently named one of Hollywood Reporter's Top 50 Digital Power Innovators, has consistently been at the forefront of emerging platforms. During his tenure at Nickelodeon, Hecht was the architect behind some of the most successful children's franchises of all-time including SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Blue's Clues and Jimmy Neutron. Worldwide Biggies plans to give Bigby the same star treatment with a full transmedia strategy to rollout following on the heels of the iPhone game including an animated television, film and interactive web series.
"We see Bigby as an innovative new character franchise with crossover appeal," said Albie Hecht, CEO and Founder of Worldwide Biggies Inc. "Kids, tweens, and young adults are consuming content and interacting with characters in a whole new way and we felt the best approach to initially engage this audience is through a platform like the iPhone which has become an intrinsic part of their daily lives."
Bigby: L.A.P.D. also features a bonus animated video created by Worldwide Biggies which chronicles Bigby's latest hilarious adventure as he tries to save international pop superstar Shakira from the clutches of a fire-breathing dragon!
