in Games (E)

[] Fremont, California - Sprite Labs today is pleased to announce the addition of pets to the 3D interactive character app, now called "Talking Anya & her new pet puppies". In this update there are five adorable puppies whom Anya plays with and takes care of. Users will be able to feed the puppies, make them do tricks: fetch, crawl, stand, shake, dance. They can also feed, cuddle and pet the Puppies. With this update the 3D engine has been enhanced to support multiple 3D characters in realtime.

Talking Anya & her new pet puppies is now available in the App Store as a Free Universal app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Anya is a cute little girl who dances, sings and plays interactive games like twirl the hula hoop, pop the bubbles, play the maracas, catch the flowers and engage in snowball fights. She repeats what you say. You can even dress her up in one of dozens of dresses, change her hair or eye color, or just tickle her.

A unique feature of the app is that it brings real time collaborative game play between users in a LAN environment or via bluetooth. Kids and parents can spend countless hours playing with each other, from their own devices, games like toss the ball and throw snow balls, The ball actually goes from one device to another making this a fun realistic experience for the players. Furthermore they can compete for high scores when playing the other interactive games together, such as pop the bubbles, catch the flowers in a basket and twirl the hula hoop.

Talking Anya is the first of its kind app, with real time 3D interactive character animation as opposed to sprite based animation that other similar apps are based on. This provides superior functionality, like interactive game play and on-the-fly dynamic customization and modifications to the character which a pre-generated sprite based technology cannot support. As an example, users can change the textures on the model, in this case the girl's clothes and she can perform the same set of actions in different dresses, something which would not have been possible with traditional methods.

This app uses the accelerometer creatively, a user can make Anya twirl the hoop if the he/she moves the phone in circles, stop and she drops the hoop. It is loaded with interactive play, she blows the bubbles and the user can pop them with a tap or pop multiple bubble with simultaneous taps, tap her feet and she will dance, tap her nose and she makes a funny face, she is quite emotional too, just like all little girls! Making her definitely a fun to play with app.
