Cyber Group Releases New Zou Interactive Goodies
France’s Cyber Group Studios has just announced the release of new interactive projects based on the HD CG preschool show Zou (52 x 11). The interactive projects, which are meant to extend the brand, will consist of an animated ebook, various apps, and a dedicated website.
The Zou eBook is already available via Apple’s App Store and the Android market, with releases in English, German, French, and Italian. A total of 15 language releases will be made available by the end of the year. The eBook takes full advantage of CG animation and a dedicated engine in order to deliver a fully interactive reading experience. The launch of the eBook is being promoted simultaneously with the release of various social apps and a multi-lingual website, ZouTV.com. More apps and games will be released this summer.
We have spent over a year developing a full set of Zou’s interactive products, together with our partner 3DDUO,” says Pierre Sissmann, Chairman and CEO of Cyber Group Studios. “It was a key to us to be able to extend the entertainment of Zou beyond television in the world of today’s kids. With the apps, the games and the websites developed, we have tried to address the full interactive field in remaining true to the brand and its family values which are at the core of the series. And we have tried to do it on a worldwide basis, which has been a real challenge in such a short span of time.”
