Ferly, the Finnish animation, publishing, and licensing studio, together with QubicGames, the Polish games studio has announced the extension of Ferly’s successful Momolu and Friends brand with the launch of its Nintendo Switch game.
Momolu and Friends is a wonderful game designed for pre-schoolers, where familiar characters help children learn the alphabet, colours and numbers through a dozen playful minigames.
The game follows Momolu, a gentle, unassuming panda who has a knack of stumbling into situations requiring his help. Momolu’s friends experience their own set of everyday problems which are solved through creative thinking and collaboration:
In the game players join Momolu to help the other animals find solutions to their challenges by encouraging them to use their own skills and strengths. By working together the animals discover, learn, make mistakes, have tons of fun, and always learn something about design along the way.
Gameplay features include:
Laura Nevanlinna, CEO of Ferly says “The Momolu brand is a really nice fit with the Nintendo Switch. As a platform it is excellent for young children to enjoy playing learning-based games. QubicGames has done an outstanding job bringing the Momolu world to the Nintendo Switch world, translating the essence of the brand and getting the game play perfectly aligned with the rest of the Momolu universe.”
Jakub Pieczykolan, CEO of QubicGames adds “We are glad that we had an opportunity to bring outstanding Momolu’s world to Nintendo Switch. Its educational aspect reflects positive values we like to promote within naptime.games – QubicGames’ brand focused on family friendly entertainment.
