Knowledge Adventure has announced the launch of the JumpStart Virtual World . The game, played online on both Macs and PCs, offers a safe and secure online environment where kids can interact, explore, and learn, the announcement states.

 

In addition to the live release of the JumpStart Virtual World, Knowledge Adventure has announced Adventure Land , its next immersive 3D virtual world and newest addition to JumpStart.com. Adventure Land is specifically designed for kids ages 5-8 and uses JumpStart's technology to engage players in adventure-based learning games, including multi-player games.

 

In Adventure Land, kids are invited to explore a mysterious lost island off the coast of JumpStart. After mastering the speed, skills, and moves needed to survive the mission on Training Island, players are whisked off to Lost Island. As kids explore mystical caverns, discover forgotten ruins, and test their smarts on a trek to the peak of Mystic Mountain, they’ll have the opportunity to compete in multi-player games in real time. With pesky trouble-makers known as Punk-Punks attempting to thwart kids' progress, it takes critical thinking skills, logic, and speed to succeed.

 

For a monthly fee of $7.99, parents can register their entire family at JumpStart.com to become members of the fully interactive 3D virtual world.
