Sky Whale, an app developed by Nickelodeon that has already been downloaded 30 million times across the globe and averages around 2 million monthly users has now got an enhanced augmented reality version.
iLLOGIKA, the Montreal based developer that has worked on Disney Infinity Action, Cuphead, Lara Croft GO and Hitman Go have developed an AR mode of the game, that is set to challenge players in a full 360 degree experience.
The augmented reality mode of Sky Whale makes the space around the player become the sea and sky when viewed through your devices camera. In the game, players steer Narby with an AR-enabled device, moving through the space to soar through the sky or swim underwater in a race to collect items and accumulate points for high scores. Inspired by kids’ love for gaming, Sky Whale was the first in a series of apps created by the characters in Game Shakers that were brought to life for real kids to play.
“We feel very grateful that Nickelodeon trusted iLLOGIKA to develop the AR mode of one of their top grossing games. We applied our technical expertise in mixed reality to create an incredible augmented reality experience steeped with the brand’s DNA, which will bring a new level of entertainment to Sky Whale fans. We hope that Sky Whale fans will enjoy this new augmented reality mode as much as we do,” said David Fugère-Lamarre, CEO and co-founder of iLLOGIKA.
