Gamisodes has teamed with "Inspector Gadget" owner, Wildbrain, to adapt the first season of the animated series for the company's online interactive gaming platform. Gamers can join the bumbling detective and become part of his exploits from the series' original episodes.
Behind the new gaming development is Gamisodes, a Southern California-based game publisher and interactive entertainment platform that works alongside major animation studios to transform television episodes into interactive games.
Set to launch in early 2023, gamisodes are online gamified episodes of animated shows. In each "Inspector Gadget" gamisode, a player's avatar will become part of the show, seamlessly interacting with "Inspector Gadget" and friends to take on the bad guys. During the game, players can use Gamisodes collectible cards for an in-game bonus as a tool, an ability or a wearable. Gamisodes is building on the Flow blockchain, designed to provide fans and players a safe, secure and environmentally friendly way to keep, trade or sell their digital assets.
Gamisodes' "Inspector Gadget" virtual collectible cards will drop on Aug. 12 for trading and use exclusively within the Gamisodes platform. Each "Inspector Gadget" card will come in a digital pack, featuring different gadgets with varying levels of rarity.
Gamisodes celebrates the introduction of its platform on July 29 with the worldwide premiere of the first-remastered classic "Inspector Gadget" episode, "Haunted Mansion," from season 1 of the animated series – debuting in the Gamisodes Discord.
"We are extremely excited to announce the debut of the 'Inspector Gadget' Gamisodes and set San Diego Comic-Con 2022 for the official launch of the Gamisodes virtual collectible cards," says Davis Brimer, founder, chief executive officer, Gamisodes. "In addition to our prestigious founding team members, including Sander Schwartz, Howard Braham and Agnes Garbowska, Gamisodes is privileged to be joined by WildBrain and Flow, two of the most renowned and prolific players in the animation and blockchain industries, in helping to develop our groundbreaking platform. After an extensive development phase, we look forward with great enthusiasm to bringing the Gamisodes platform to the gaming public."
"From the moment we first saw Gamisodes' vision for our classic 'Inspector Gadget' episodes, we knew this platform was something very special and that it would generate tremendous appeal with fans of 'Inspector Gadget,'" says Caroline Tyre, vice president, global sales and rights strategy, WildBrain. "We're pleased to have 'Inspector Gadget' become the very first world-renowned animated series to join the Gamisodes lineup."
