For Valentine’s Day 2018, Nickelodeon’s I ❤ SpongeBob event will be celebrating everyone’s favorite moments from the show’s near-20 year run. To complement the network’s marathon of favorite episodes and fan content that will run all week, Workinman Interactive was tasked to create a online multiplayer battle game in the spirit of the show and its memes.
SpongeMania mixes .io-style gameplay and Smash Bros-like multiplayer platform battling with the zaniness of the of the series and its crazy cast of characters. Its a simple concept: bring SpongeBob the items he requests, but once you are pitted against a group of other players striving to be the first to deliver, it becomes hilariously challenging. Utilizing a new 2Dkit-based HTML5 engine and powered by PlayFab Online Game Services, kids from all over the world, using desktop or mobile devices, can battle each other to win SpongeBob’s heart and prove who is the best SpongeFan of all.
As a family-friendly online multiplayer game, Workinman designed with SpongeMania with COPPA in mind, keeping players anonymous, but still allowing for a sense of identify and safe communication. Play it now on Nick.com.
