iCarly Wii Game Out Today-1.052009-10-28 20:13:37Maura SActivision today announced that the game of the smash hit TV show starring Miranda Cosgrove is now out for the Wii in North America. The game is inspired by the show’s premise of creative use of technology, and gets players involved in helping Carly, Sam, Freddie and other characters create brand new webisodes of the show. Players will also have the chance to participate in more than 80 challenges that are set up as if they were segments of the show. In iCreate mode, gamers can rearrange props, characters, colour schemes, audio, intros and outros and much more. Up to four players can participate, either as competitors or in co-operative mode, in a bid to earn Web-Cred by completing skits. The Web-Cred can then be used to buy various upgrades, such as new equipment, props and locations.
“iCarly encourages creativity with its great characters and storylines,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “The iCarly video game incorporates these elements from the TV show into an energetic gameplay experience that is non-stop entertainment.”* “Part of what has made iCarly the top show with kids and teens is allowing them to participate in their viewing experience through the website,” said Steve Youngwood, Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group. “This game extends that concept even further by tapping into kids’ creativity to provide them with endless fun.”
