Nickelodeon UK releases new online multiplayer game

Living Loud: Summer School, based on the Nicktoons series The Loud House, launches today

London, July 2 2018 – Nickelodeon UK & Ireland today releases its second online multiplayer game, Living Loud: Summer School. It’s the sequel to Living Loud: Lincoln’s List, which launched last summer and has continued to be the biggest game on nicktoons.co.uk since the site’s launch. The game can be found at www.nicktoons.co.uk/summer.

Living Loud: Summer School has been developed by London-based creative agency, Ralph, who also produced the Tinkershrimp & Dutch animated series for the broadcaster.

The Living Loud: Summer School game is an immersive adventure game set in various locations which will be familiar to Loud House viewers, including the interior of the Loud House (as per Lincoln’s List) but also many new places such as the school, the park and the exterior of the Loud House.

Summer holidays have arrived for students at Royal Woods Elementary school, but a bad report card means that Lincoln has lots of extra homework to do over the holidays. Lincoln must improve his school report by tackling mini-quests relating to each of his six subjects. Each task is based in a specific location in the Loud House universe, however (with the exception of the final ‘boss level’ task) they can be approached in any order and players can switch tasks/locations at any point. Within each location, there will also be medals Lincoln can earn by performing certain tasks and collecting certain items (items can be distributed across different locations). 

Key Highlights for Living Loud: Summer School

·       Simple and intuitive controls for all playing devices

·       Map interface movement accessed in the User Interface

·       Task activation for players on each level which Lincoln needs to improve on giving users the chance to move from fail to pass once the task is completed

·       New day/night functionality that is integral to completing tasks and achieving medals; players will need to strategically switch between day to night to progress through the game. 

·       Two-player functionality 

·       Fun, shareable GIFs/badges which communicate the humour of the show and encourage players to share progress with friends, thereby enticing other potential players to come and have a go. There will be no direct social network links. 

“Nickelodeon continues to produce games that are fun for kids, and this follow-up to Loud House: Lincoln’s List is another reason why nicktoons.co.uk is the perfect place to play” said Suzie Adams, Digital Director at Nickelodeon

Chris Hassell, CEO at Ralph, added: “Having worked with Nickelodeon on last year’s Living Loud: Lincoln’s List game, as well as creating the Tinkershrimp & Dutch animated series, it’s great to have collaborated with them again on Living Loud: Summer School. We hope we’ve done justice to Nickelodeon’s fantastic show, The Loud House.
