metoyoumyplace.com – On- and offline expansion for groundbreaking branded social game from CBG

16 08 2011

Exciting Expansion merges the real and virtual gifting World

Click to Join In

On 15th August popular social game Me to You My Place expanded beyond Facebook to enable people of all ages to take part in a safe and educational environment on metoyoumyplace.com as new character Tatty Puppy joins the adventure.

Having received much attention from Me to You and My Blue Nose Friends fans on Facebook with over 150,000 players since launching in December 2010, Carte Blanche Greetings, the privately owned leading British greetings card and gifting company, and client of AT New Media (Brands Division), has decided to make Me to You My Place available to all for free or through a subscription based membership on its own freestanding website.

Me to You My Place currently has over 500,000 player interactions within the game and 10,000 shared feed posts every day on the Facebook platform, and 1.3 million Me to You My Place gifts have been shared between players since launch.

Until now only available through Facebook for over 13s, the improved Me to You My Place will offer children the chance to play in a safe environment where they can become Tatty Teddy and embark on their very own adventure to find, nurture and love their favourite My Blue Nose Friends. Me to You My Place will still have the social features that have helped make the game so popular, but now with added parental control. The new gameplay also features a series of educational mini games that will allow children to train their brains in different areas, including arithmetic and memory.

As part of the game extension, Carte Blanche Greetings is also introducing a new character – Tatty Puppy – to the Me to You family.

Even more exciting is the fact that Tatty Puppy will be available to buy as a real-life soft toy with a code that enables fans to unlock the virtual Tatty Puppy in Me to You My Place. The mischievous puppy plays a very different role to the My Blue Nose Friends, which become apparent as the player advances in the game. As Tatty Teddy’s companion on the exciting exploration of the Me to You My Place world, Tatty Puppy will help users discover hidden treasures quicker, aid Tatty Teddy in caring for the My Blue Nose Friends as well as do a trick or two for bonus points.

“With the launch of metoyoumyplace.com Carte Blanche Greetings has successfully taken a 15 year old physical presence and made it even more digitally relevant, truly giving its dedicated following a space to claim for themselves and continue to enjoy the brand both offline and online,” says Jocasta Kelsey, Head of Marketing at Carte Blanche Greetings. “This is a fantastic new adventure for both the brands and its community as Carte Blanche Greetings keeps on breaking new ground.”

Developed by Sharkius Games, the free-to-play Me to You My Place incorporates elements of competition, treasure hunt, harvesting, collaborative construction with friends and gift sending. Accessible to all ages, players become Tatty Teddy to embark on a journey to find, nurture and love My Blue Nose Friends. The level of care provided by the player allows them to make Friends for Keeps and to enhance and personalise their experience through a subscriptions based membership, creating an additional revenue stream for the company.

The evolution of this project has been possible through consultation with AT New Media. For more information on how AT New Media can help you with your digital licensing strategy and the merits of its full integration within your merchandising programs, please contact Simon Kay

First Worms™ Merchandise Licensees are Signed and Incoming!

21 04 2011

Team17 and AT New Media confirm first partners

  Birmingham, UK, April 21 2011.  It has not taken long for the hugely popular videogames franchise Worms™ to connect with merchandise licensees and retailers. Worms™, which celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2010, is a bestselling, award-winning and hilarious turn-based strategy videogame with so many assets that are great for merchandising.

 Gaya Entertainment and IGS Corporation are the first licensees to join the initial merchandising push for Worms™ across Europe which will see initial products ranging from large plush and squeezies through to beanies, keyrings, and ceramic mugs marketed. Team 17 expect the initial products will be available later this year.

With such quirky characters, cutely designed and bursting with personality, the potential for plush Worms™, Worms™ toys and figures is a huge untapped market.  Alan Perrie, Head of Global Marketing, Team17 Software Ltd  says, “Even the weapons have more personality than some video game characters, with classics like the Super Sheep, Concrete Donkey, and Banana Bomb. We, like many others, can’t wait to get our hands on the first plush products”.

Simon Kay, Business Development Director of licensing agency, AT New Media continues, “We are so thrilled with the response to this opportunity and in a competitive market. However once you get immersed in the world of Worms™, merchandise licensees begin to see the vast potential and also the points of differentiation that make it a great option with all the core elements for merchandising and longevity fully present.”

 Across multiple product categories, the ability to customize the Worms™ with a ridiculous array of hats, hair, hands and glasses; its extensive variety of crazy, surreal and hilarious weaponry, and its hilarious audio, with a large number of memorable catchphrases and taunts shouted by the worms during the course of battle, such as…”I’ll get you!”, “Revenge!”, “Stupid!”, “Traitor!”, “Incoming!” and “You’ll Regret That!” is very exciting.

With millions of players and fans, its irreverent mix of ludicrous action-strategy captivates and entertains audiences of all ages worldwide. With number 1 hits on Xbox™LIVE Arcade, PlayStation® Network, Apple’s App Store, Steam for PC, and with exciting new titles yet to be announced, this is set to roll and roll.

Additional licensing agreements will be announced soon covering additional plush, toy, and collectible product categories.
