JUMALA EXPANDS GAME CREATION EXPERIENCE WITH REFRESHED LOOK AND DOZENS OF NEW FEATURES
New Reward System, More Customizable Items, Enhanced Visual and Audio Effects Boost Fun in Create and Share Game Play
BELLEVUE, Wash., July 9, 2012 – Hit the beach; take a trip; or even build a video game. Summertime is now game time with Jumala. The free game creation destination just got a boost of new features to enhance the excitement of creating and sharing unique 3D game experiences. More customizable items, vivid visual effects, and a new reward system have been added to the PC-based game which blends game creation, play, and an interactive community into an immersive and entertaining experience that is different for every player, every time.
Jumala, from Blade Games World, makes building a game into a game itself. Anyone can design unique, visually stunning, 3D game experiences, even players with no technical skills. Players choose a template to get started and then let their imaginations guide them to create their own video game. The new update, now available for download at Jumala.com, dramatically enhances the overall game play experience with enriched graphics and more intuitive game play mechanics. For the first time, thousands of game content items are customizable so players can alter color, size, and even sound effects to fit the theme of their game. Plus, players now earn rewards, unlock skills, and get in-game currency simply by creating and exploring within Jumala. The more players create, the more exciting and engaging the game creation experience becomes.
“With Jumala, we want players of all skill levels to have fun as they imagine, build, and play their own ever-changing 3D games,” says Virl Hill, CEO of Blade Games World. “While other games may offer an option to design one level or a character, in Jumala the entire experience is created by the player. Our community amazes us by creating homages to their favorite games or movies, vacation-based adventures, worlds ruled by plants, zombie apocalypses, and more. Now, with our first major update since launching our beta program last fall, we’ve enriched the experience so that building a game is even more simple, seamless, and fun.”
Getting started in Jumala is easy. Players design Jumala games using templates, such as a spooky marsh or an alien galaxy. Players can reshape the terrain, swap out game objects, change lighting and backgrounds, and even modify game play behaviors to create their own unique experience. Thousands of items are available to easily drop into game designs and more can be purchased in the Jumala Marketplace. Jumala also delivers a multi-faceted social experience by enabling players to share their games by sending links directly to their social networks and by publishing the game in the Jumala Arcade for the entire Jumala community to enjoy.
The new beta version of Jumala is available now for Windows 7, Vista. Windows XP. Visit www.jumala.com to download, create, and play for free.
