Avventura da Paura – Social Web Game

Following the big success of Camp Orange’s Social Web Games, Alittleb.it has created the social game “Avventura da Paura” (Scary Adventure – Avventura da Paura’s Social Web Game) for MTV Italy and Nickelodeon. The game is published on nicktv.it portal – http://avventuradapaura.nicktv.it/gioco.html.

Avventura da Paura is a Nickelodeon’s Adventure Broadcast-Game  that goes on air on Nickelodeon (the Mtv’s teen channel).

alittleb.it created the game concept, the design and the graphics, and made an hard work on writing the Flash (AS3) and PHP5 code of the Web Game Avventura da Paura.

Avventura da Paura is at most a reskin and upgrade of Camp Orange’s Social Web Games: this was possible because of the flexibility of our Social Game Development Platform (LUDUM).

Alittleb.it has developed the entire website www.avventuradapaura.it, too.Read More
