Kiwi and Pear's World Adventure

We're excited to announce that our upcoming game, Kiwi and Pear's World Adventure, is shaping up to be quite fantastic and will be coming out for the iPhone/iPod/iPad this October. Intended for ages 4 and up, Kiwi and Pear's World Adventure is an interactive storybook that follows them in their travels, and provides 3 additional fun mini-games for children to enjoy and learn basic geography.

Kiwi and Pear are two adventurous monkeys who travel and explore the world while spreading love, friendship and smiles to everyone and everything they meet. No adventure is too great for these intrepid little monkeys. They have climbed the Great Wall, hiked the Andes, sailed the Nile – they have even been to outer space! Kiwi is curious, fun-loving and silly while Pear is good-natured, sensible and mellow. These affectionate monkeys are happiest when together and are often wrapped in a seemingly endless hug. They do everything together and are rarely apart.

Below is a link to WanArt's website, and further down are screenshots of the game in action. We'd also love to hear any early feedback to the screenshots, and will be editing this post to provide a like to the game's video teaser as soon as it is available!

The Kiwi and Pear brand were created by WanArt's fantastic Joyce Wan, and more information about them can be found at the following link as well as on Facebook where we will be posting wallpapers and other neat new items as they are created in the runup to the launch:

Thank you Sammysin! We're really hoping that children enjoy this cute pair, and are so very proud to be bringing Kiwi and Pear to electronic gaming. If you have any young children we would really suggest you check out amazon or their website where they have some really great items for sale.

Kiwi and Pear Launch Date Question

Our intention is to launch Kiwi and Pear's World Adventure (approval process willing) during the first week of October. So far the game is looking great and we're just ironing out a few minor remaining bugs before a formal submission is made!

Looking forward to this game a great deal - I've got a three year old and a five year old who are going to fall in love with this game...and it's got monkeys !!!

Any idea of the price on release ?

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

App Pricing

Hello Quebecotr, and thank you for the kind words! We are currently expecting to price out the full application at $3.99 as we feel it has quite a bit of content in it to warrant the price with both the interactive storybook (fully narrated) and the three mini-games. Most parents have likely been burned enough times by the 99 cent bug in the app store and we hope are looking for something with a bit more meet for their kids as is.

Of course, we really would appreciate feedback on the price from parents so do let us know your thoughts!

Availability and Friends

We plan to launch Kiwi and Pear's World Adventure for all of the Americas as well as western Europe and Japan for the initial release. We do not have plans for multiple languages as of yet, but certainly could do so if the game is well recieved.

Kiwi and Pear do have a fun elephant companion, Blueberry the blue elephant! We'll be sure to let the creators know that there is interest in meeting more of their companions!

If anyone is interested in the rest of the Kiwi and Pear characters, you can see them here:
