RED Interactive announces the launch of ‘The Boxtrolls: Slide 'n' Sneak,’ a side-scrolling action adventure game based on the 3D stop-motion-animated family feature The Boxtrolls.
SANTA MONICA, CA -- Animation studio LAIKA, Focus Features and RED Games, a division of RED Interactive Agency, have announced the launch of The Boxtrolls: Slide 'n' Sneak, a beautifully crafted side-scrolling action adventure game based on the 3D stop-motion-animated family feature The Boxtrolls.
Available for iOS and coming soon for Android, the mobile game introduces players to the underground cavern-dwelling community of fun and fantastical creatures, the Boxtrolls, and gives users a bold new way to experience the creativity and excitement of the movie.
The Boxtrolls: Slide 'n' Sneak shares the movie's spirit of innovation and visual integrity, and thereby achieves a level of quality that is unprecedented in mobile gaming. To emulate LAIKA's unique animation style in a touch screen experience, RED Games uses traditional animation techniques to create interactive characters from images taken directly from the film, preserving all the details and textures in rich retina-quality graphics. The game utilizes the native gyroscope in many devices to provide a sense of depth -- menu scenes twist and move as the user tilts the device, creating a parallax effect that is stunning.
The Boxtrolls: Slide 'n' Sneak is FREE to download for iOS, and coming soon to Android devices.
