Montreal, Canada, November 3th, 2015 – Behaviour Interactive, announce the release of the multiplatform video game The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure. Published by Activision Publishing, and developed by Behaviour, the game follows the adventures of Snoopy as he explores the fantastical worlds of his imagination to track down Charlie Brown and his friends in an intricate game of hide-and-seek.
Inspired by The Peanuts Movie, released this week from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, the game is a side-scrolling platformer, starring the characters of the classic comic strip from the imagination of Charles M. Shulz. The game features Snoopy, searching for his lost friends and discovering some of his most famous costumes that give him unique abilities to overcome obstacles and reach new worlds. David Williams, Senior Creative Director of the game commented “Some of the most loved moments in the Peanuts comics are when Snoopy becomes one of his alter egos and creates a fantasy world to act out in. We wanted to create a childlike situation that could make Snoopy feel that the kids are in trouble, and with this, create his own heroic adventures to rescue them.”
From the dark depths of the Jungle, to a stylish Paris, all the way to his adventures on the Moon, each environment is meticulously created in the same visual style as The Peanuts Movie to bring to life the Peanuts characters and environments that Snoopy explores.
“The production of the game had some great challenges in following the unique style, looks and feel of the movie, but thanks to the cooperation of Activision, Peanuts and Blue Sky, we were able to create an amazing looking game” commented Senior Producer Benjamin Prieto
