From the Makers of RuneScape: Herotopia

Jagex, the studio behind RuneScape, has published a new MMO for children of all ages titled Herotopia.

In Herotopia, children practice global “heroship,” learn how to deal with bullies and unite together to make the world a better place. Visiting locations around the globe using their fully customizable Herotopia alter ego, players can explore international cities and locations, discovering cultural, historic and geographical information about these lands as they travel.

With today’s launch, Herotopia unveils a new Mission System, giving players more than 75 challenging quests to complete and five new mini-games, including daily Power Puzzles that test their creativeness, skill and knowledge of the world around them.

Caryn and Wade Teman, joint CEO’s of co-developer Herotainment, said:

When creating Herotopia, we as parents ourselves wanted to empower kids to be their own heroes and to get something more out of playing an online game than just a high score.

That’s certainly a laudable goal — better kids be playing this and learning important life lessons than learning how to be an internet troll on World of Warcraft.

Herotopia is free to play, with an All-Access Superhero membership option available for a small monthly fee, offering special features and privileges on top of the free game. An All-Access membership costs from $5.95 a month, a portion of which will be donated to children’s charities, voted on by the Herotopia community.

Key features:

  • Fully customizable Herotopia alter-ego, from super hero cape and costume, choice of Super power, items to decorate your Secret Hideout and more.
  • 25 fun and informative mini-games, including the just released Power Puzzles, featuring trivia and brain teaser quizzes for a daily reward.
  • Story driven Mission system that empowers players to keep Herotopia free of bullies and their bad behavior.
  • 19 international landmarks and locations for players to visit and learn about, from the Eiffel Tower to the North Pole!
  • A safe online venue for kids to socialize in, as players communicate through pre-determined phrases, words and charming animated “Heromotes”.
  • Kids truly become Super Heroes, as a percentage of Herotopia memberships will be donated to the Global Heroship Fund to help kids do their own good deeds in the real world.
