Draw Your Own Video Game with Adventure Time Game Wizard
Cartoon Network Games Partners with Pixel Press to Create Mobile Magic

    Further solidifying its position as a world-class mobile game publisher, Cartoon Network Games today announces the global launch of its new offering, Adventure Time Game Wizard. Coming to the App Store, Google Play and Amazon across the world, this innovative title encourages players to draw their own Adventure Time game levels with a pencil and paper.  The Pixel Press capture technology brings the game design to life on a mobile device, where it can be played, shared with friends and published online for fellow gamers to see.
    The partnership between Cartoon Network Games and Pixel Press is a natural fit. Adventure Time mobile games have historically been top performers for the network, with both Adventure Time: Card Wars and Beemo ranking as #1 Top Apps in the App Store. Additionally, the most popular gaming franchise on CartoonNetwork.com is Game Creator, with more than 2.6 billion total game plays. Adventure Time Game Wizard merges the beloved animated series with the fans’ desire to create, making an app wholly unique to the mobile marketplace.
    The user-generated levels become part of a story where Finn and Jake happen upon a magical sketchbook (property of a brand-new character, the mysterious Doodle Wizard) and quickly discover that anything drawn in the book comes to life.  Without hesitation they begin to sketch up their own adventures and watch as their drawings run around the pages right before their eyes… but it isn’t all fun and games, as it seems a nefarious presence lurks within the sketchbook’s pages.
    Grumpyface Studios, the team behind Ghost Toasters – Regular Show and Mutant Fridge Mayhem – Gumball, bridged Pixel Press' technology and Cartoon Network's characters adding animation, interface, story and game design. Favorite Adventure Time characters are reimagined as pencil drawings, giving them a new look that can only be seen in the Game Wizard universe.
    Adventure Time Game Wizard is available now for $4.99, and a full starter kit with tutorial and special branded paper is available at www.atgamewiz.com.
