A new Thomas & Friends CD-ROM game,
Thomas & Friends: Building the New Line
from Infogrames and Gullane Entertainment will pull into the station later this summer. The new CD-ROM game lets kids design and build tracks while experiencing the world of Thomas on the Island of Sodor.
In Thomas & Friends: Building the New Line, the Island of Sodor is busier than ever with shipments to ship, buildings to build and cargo to transport. The engines need children’s help to lay down new tracks and customize the surroundings with buildings and landscaping that complete the scene. Once they click into “play” mode, they can watch their creation come to life as they drive Thomas and his friends around the track.
Developed by Stunt Puppy Entertainment, Thomas & Friends: Building the New Line for Mac (the traditional Mac operating system, not Mac OS X) and Windows is appropriate for ages three and up. It’s slated to ship in September for an approximate retail price of US$19.95.
