Zoo Games Announces Story Hour
‘Fairy Tales’ and ‘Adventures’

A New Storytelling Platform
Brings Families Together

Classic fairytales and fables had
been passed down from generation to generation verbally and in books. Those
traditions are now getting an interactive twist as Zoo Games today announced two
Story Hour titles: Fairy Tales and Adventures, exclusively for Wii. A modern
take on such beloved tales as Cinderella, Snow White, Jack and the Beanstalk,
and Paul Bunyan, Fairy Tales and Adventures will each offer four different
stories that incorporate motion sensitive controls so that parents and
preschoolers can tell stories together.

“Story Hour is our unique way to
bring timeless stories to life, enabling parents and their children to connect
with the classics through the medium of video games,” said Lee Cummings,
Creative Director of Green Screen Interactive Software, Inc. “By working with a
host of world-class children’s artists, each bringing their distinctive style to
the screen, the stories have a unique look that families will enjoy and deliver
an enriching experience that generations have loved through a fresh, relevant
medium.”

Immortal storybook tales are brought
to life as young and old come together to experience two Story Hour titles:
Fairy Tales and Adventures. Artists on the project include:

  • 12 Dancing Princesses –
    illustrated by Alessia Girasole;
