Game publisher Scopely has struck a deal with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to bring Looney Tunes characters in the form of a mobile game including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyoute, Yoemite Sam, Tweety Bird and others.
“We have worked really hard to make sure that we maintain the level of humour you would have gotten from the show, and level it up. We maintain the sense of fun: the dropping anvils, the rolling boulders,” Scopely chief revenue officer Tim O’Brien told Deadline.
Titled ‘Looney Tunes: World of Mayhem’ allows players to collect their favourite characters, build personalized towns, battle with neighbours in prank-combat and cause mayhem.
The multiplayer mobile game slated to be released this fall preserves the original comedy from the animated shorts giving a modern entertainment experience.
Looney Tunes: World of Mayhem, due out this fall, allows players to collect their favorite characters, build personalized Toon Towns, and battle it out with animated neighbors in prank-filled combat.
