Here’s some fun news to go with your morning coffee. Chillingo, the publisher behind games like Angry Birds and Cut the Rope, is bringing the much loved Peanuts comic strip to iOS in a Snoopy-featured, endless running game, called Snoopy Coaster.
Leigh Anne Brodsky, the Managing Director of Peanuts Worldwide, and the licensor of the “Peanuts” brand, said:
There’s something in Peanuts that everyone can relate to, and we are always looking for new ways to share the characters with future generations. Partnering with a leading gaming publisher like Chillingo is a great step in that direction. Plus, Snoopy Coaster delivers a fantastic, fun experience for players who want the thrill ride of their lives.
Snoopy Coaster will feature everyone’s favorite beagle and the rest of the Peanuts characters. The game is an endless coaster where you help Snoopy and his pals on a roller coaster ride filled with coins, power-ups, and unlockables.
This game really is a great way to keep Charles M. Schulzs’ much-loved comic strip alive by bringing it to new audiences in a new way.
Snoopy Coaster is set to be released later this month. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited.
