New York, NY;
Hollywood, CA (PRWEB)
The celebration of the 30th anniversary of “Fraggle Rock” continues as Cupcake Digital announces an all-new interactive story adventure app based on the beloved series created by Jim Henson. Fraggle Rock Game Day stars the adorable, pig-tailed Red as she does loads of laundry, makes the biggest splash, and picks radishes on her way to having a record-breaking game day. While Red is busy on her quest to be the best of the best, Junior Gorg captures her Fraggle friends. Will Red also be able to save Boober, Gobo, Mokey and Wembley? The full story is available today for $2.99 on the Apple App Store, Amazon, Google Play and the Barnes & Noble NOOK Store™ for iOS, Android, NOOK and Kindle Fire platforms.
In addition to the playful story app, Cupcake Digital is making Fraggle Friends Forever available for free (regularly $2.99) from August 15-19 on iTunes and Amazon. This first Fraggle Rock enhanced story app was introduced in May 2013, and has been a top-rated app ever since.
