HILVERSUM, the Netherlands - June 23, 2009
SPIL GAMES, a leading network of online game destinations, has added Disney’s popular virtual world, Club Penguin, to the roster of games available on several of its portals, including its French tween portal, jeu.fr; Brazilian family portal, ojogos.com.br; British tweens portal, mygames.co.uk; and American tweens portal, agame.com.
Club Penguin is a snow-covered online playground where children can explore, play games, and interact with friends. With its imaginative play environment, word-filtering technology, and live moderators who monitor chat and activity on the site to prevent the sharing of inappropriate or personally identifiable information, Club Penguin has built a reputation as a safe and secure online environment that provides fun for kids and peace of mind for parents.
First launched in English three-and-a-half years ago, Club Penguin recently opened a French version and a Portuguese version of the site.
“Club Penguin is widely known as the largest and fastest-growing virtual world for children, and we’re excited to provide French-speaking, Portuguese-speaking, and English-speaking children and families with the opportunity to participate in this fun and popular world,” says Peter Driessen, CEO of SPIL GAMES.
SPIL GAMES operates a global network of casual game portals, which have a primary audience of young girls, tweens, and families and boast more than 100 million visitors each month, enabling children, tweens, and parents from around the world to gain easier access to games like Club Penguin.
“Disney has a reputation of developing high-quality and exciting content for children and families, and as our main focus at SPIL GAMES is to provide destinations full of premium content for our audiences, we are confident that working with Disney will lead to great things for both parties,” says Driessen.
Since its launch, SPIL GAMES has grown from one initial casual games portal in the Netherlands (spelletjes.nl) to more than 50 casual game portals worldwide, including sites in the US, UK, Germany, and France.
