Silvergate Launches First ‘Octonauts’ App

Silvergate partners with Night & Day Studios to release the first-ever mobile app based on the popular 3D-animated preschool series.

International preschool TV production and licensing company Silvergate Media, along with mobile developer Night & Day Studios, have launched the first-ever Octonauts app.

This exploration-based app features much-loved Octonauts characters and all the fun from Silvergate’s award-winning undersea preschool television show, Octonauts. In the first Octonauts app, young players will be able to explore the 3D-animated underwater world of the Octonauts, with more than 20 surprising creature animations, engaging mini-games and exciting missions.

Guaranteed to delight young Octonauts fans, this new app lets users interact with expressive, animated 3D models of charming sea creatures, with the ability to rotate and move creatures, and learn important facts about their undersea lives. Throughout their open-ended adventures with Octonauts, children have the chance to Explore, Rescue, and Protect alongside their favorite Octonauts, navigating with their choice of GUPs, through wondrous sunlight, twilight and midnight zones.

We are hugely excited to launch the very first Octonauts app, designed and developed by Night & Day Studios,” said Silvergate Media CEO Waheed Alli. “Kids will now be able to Explore, Rescue, and Protect alongside their favorite Octonauts in a 3D animated world, playing mini-games and learning about their favorite undersea creatures. We are very proud of the app and are looking forward to seeing our global audience of young fans interact with the Octonauts in new ways.”

The Night & Day Studios team has loved the Octonauts for years, and making the first-ever Octonauts app was a thrill,” said Night & Day Studios CEO Nat Sims. “Children around the world can now captain the GUP of their choice to explore the seas, interacting with the colorful denizens of the deep. Captain Barnacles, Kwazii and the gang are ever-present to help out and cheer them on.”

The app is now available worldwide on iTunes App Store for $3.99 at
