Award-Winning My Town™ Games
Signs Deal with Discovery, Inc. to Release
My Town Games, a leading creator of popular digital “dollhouse-like” games announces a first-of-its-kind partnership with Discovery Inc., the global leader in real life entertainment, to create co-branded games that allow kids to explore open-ended play.
This co-venture will launch later in the summer as My Town Discovery, a game recommended for ages 6-12 that features a virtual world where kids can hang out with their friends and explore their community – go shopping, see the school they will be attending in the fall, go to the park, stop for a bite to eat in the burger shop, play mini games and visit the really cool Science Discover Museum that My Town designed with Discovery #mindblown.
My Town Discovery will debut at the App Store and on Google Play as a 7-day free trial and then game players will have the option to “join the club” with a monthly subscription fee. An added benefit to the game is specially-branded Discovery #mindblown content filled with fascinating facts “did you know…” of special interest to young learners. Initially there will be no IAPs and more games and adventures will be added in the coming months.
“My Town is all about kids exploring their world and Discovery is the perfect brand to partner with because of their long commitment to inspiration, discovery and entertainment, says Mark Tulchinski, co-founder, My Town Games. “This is an incredible opportunity to bring new learning content to fans of My Town.”
Exploration and curiosity lies deep within Discovery’s DNA,” said Matt Bonaccorso, Director, Marketing & Digital Products, Discovery. “We are thrilled to be partnering with My Town to encourage young boys and girls to discover and learn about their community via this innovative platform.”
