LONDON, UK– 13 October 2010– Mind Candy, the global developer and publisher of the popular children’s online game, Moshi Monsters, today announced the launch of the Moshi Monsters MouthOff App on the App Store. Available for iPhone and iPod touch, the Moshi Monsters MouthOff App allows children to choose their favourite Moshi Monster and give themselves their very own animated Moshi mouth by holding their device up to their mouth as they speak. The app was developed by highly experienced developer ustwo.
“With the continued growth of Moshi Monsters as one of the foremost children’s online destinations, the extension of the brand to the App Store was a natural fit,” said Michael Acton Smith, CEO of Mind Candy.“In developing the Moshi Monsters MouthOff App, we wanted to give kids a chance to access their favourite monsters in a fun, lighthearted way while on-the-go.”
With Moshi Monsters MouthOff, kids simply hold up iPhone or iPod touch in front of their mouth and pick any one of the six Moshi Monsters. As they start to speak, the microphone picks up their voice and animates the monster’s mouth on the screen. The app is localised for English, French, Italian, German, Portuguese and Spanish, so children around the world can express themselves in an exciting and playful way.
