Next Limit and BRB Launch ‘Safari Zoobabu’ App

One of the world’s first games to employ WebGL technology, ‘Safari Zoobabu’ leverages Next Limit’s Maxwell Render technology to create photorealistic stereoscopic 3D experience.

MADRID, SPAIN -- Next Limit Technologies and BRB Internacional  have just launched the web app Safari Zoobabu, a computer game based on the animated series Zoobabu. The two companies, both landmarks in the animation and video game sector, joined forces in this novel activity, which incorporates the latest WebGL technology into the scene and the characters from the funny riddles that define the series. 

Safari Zoobabu offers users the chance to venture into an entertaining safari, allowing them to explore the world of the Zoobabu animated series from their PC or laptop. Users can sign up for free here, in order to choose between 8 different locations, desert, jungle, forest, the city, reefs, picnic, icebergs and farms, and try to explore the scene looking for more than a hundred hidden animals. As their silhouettes are discovered, they can be captured with the app’s virtual, night vision camera. Then, photos are printed and saved in a gallery, which can be shared with other players. 

Available in two languages, English and Spanish, Safari Zoobabu is one of the world’s first games with WebGL technology, as well as the first one merging on PC both concepts of interactivity and ultimate image quality. It has been produced with Next Limit’s Maxwell Render technology, which manages to reproduce photorealist images from 3D models. 

The series Zoobabu, created entirely in the Screen 21 studio in Barcelona, uses 3D stereoscopic animation. The series is currently being broadcast internationally on noted television channels, TVE’s Clan, Super3 and Canal Panda in Spain, RAI in Italy, Discovery Kids in Latin America, Disney in Japan, Radio Canada and Knowledge in the USA, as well as Netflix in several countries.

Safari Zoobabu is the first joint project of Next Limit Technologies and BRB Internacional, two Spanish companies of great prestige on a world level, and we hope to present many more together in the future,” commented Marijo Arnáiz, BRB’s Director of Digital Media.
