Chuggington is a personal favorite of mine, even as an adult. There are a ton of great lessons you can learn, the animation is good and hey, it’s a show about trains! So, I was pretty excited when I saw on Twitter that StoryToys is working on a Chuggington game. Having played (or read) several of their past games (Farm 123 among others), I have high expectations for their latest project.
Here’s what we know: the game is called Chug Patrol: Ready To Rescue and as is apparent from the YouTube video seen below, it appears that we can expect a popup book-style game along the lines of previous StoryToys games. Here’s a quote from the game website:
Get Ready to Rescue! Ride the rails with Wilson, Brewster, Koko and Jackman in this Chugtastic 3D interactive pop-up storybook app. Read the story, complete the challenges, and use your new skills to win badges.
Chug Patrol: Ready to Rescue looks and feels just like a real book. Watch and read or listen as Jackman tells the story, then turn the page to see each 3D pop-up scene magically unfold! It’s packed with games and activities… Do you have what it takes to be a Chug Patroller? Take part in the action to find out!
I think it’s safe to say that whether you are a StoryToys fan or a Chuggington fan or both, this one will be worth checking out. As I am writing this I am not aware of exactly what the release date is. The YouTube video was added on the 16th of this month (which means I’m late to the game ) so I’m hoping soon.
