[prMac.com] Winnipeg, Canada - Media RendezVous Inc. and Toronto-based Positive Productions Inc. have released their third interactive mobile application as a multi-platform companion to their nationally televised and award-winning children's series Planet ECHO. Now available on the Apple iTunes Store, Dr. Greenie's MadLab Trivia is an entertaining and educational iOS app starring all the characters of Planet ECHO. The MadLab's latest iOS game app is sure to tickle the trivia senses of all kids, parents and teachers who play it.
Planet ECHO is a television series hosted by brothers Chuck and Andy Clement featuring enviro-themed stories and humorous eco-adventures presented by a cast of funny and wacky characters. The 4th season of the show is currently airing in Canada on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN). The season finale of the 4th season is a special episode where all of the show's main characters converge into the MadLab to compete in an earth-saving game show called Save the Planet...Or Else! It is this episode that serves as the launch pad for this new iOS trivia game app.
Once again this year, as part of the Canada Media Fund's convergent program, the Planet ECHO production team collaborated with the multi-talented Winnipeg-based app developers ID Fusion and the designers at Coelement to create a new mobile game called MadLab Trivia. This app is being released on the heels of the MadLab's two previous iOS apps: Dr. Greenie's MadLab and Dr. Greenie's Magnotronic. This unique partnership has expanded the reach of the Planet ECHO television series while also providing an entertaining and educational destination for kids to learn about the wonders of our planet.
Dr. Greenie's MadLab Trivia is a free interactive quiz game app that extends from the season finale of Planet Echo Season 4 - an episode called Save the Planet...Or Else! In that episode, Chuck tries to save Andy from the evil SKINK by facing off against her in a quiz game show hosted by everyone's favourite mad scientist - Dr. Greenie! The game features many all-time greatest videos from Planet Echo's 52 episodes followed by trivia questions that will test the players' knowledge of the stories. And the more questions they answer correctly, the more they help get the earth back to optimal health!
Chuck Clement, Executive Producer of Media RendezVous Inc. and host of Planet ECHO stated, "We travelled far and wide through four seasons of Planet Echo, we met so many cool people and discovered so many amazing eco-projects, and the MadLab Trivia app is a great way to re-trace our steps with bite-sized videos and bring our fans along for the ride!"
While the previous two games released by the Planet Echo team focused on wacky and funny runner-type games, this trivia app has a more educational focus. Christopher Greaves, Executive Producer of Positive Productions Inc. added, "First and foremost, the main focus with all our digital media extensions is for the players to have fun, but with MadLab Trivia we wanted to add a educational dimension that would enable kids, parents and teachers to use the app as an interactive teaching tool."
