Sydney, Australia – 18 th December 2012 – Bubble Gum Interactive, the award-winning Australian-based developer of the children’s free-to-play online game Space Heroes Universe! has partnered with InComm to offer their first Space Heroes membership cards.

Membership cards are rolling out now across Australia and New Zealand, starting with EB Games and Toys R Us, The Warehouse, Foodstuffs and Paper Plus with more retailers to come in 2013.

Much more than a virtual world, Space Heroes Universe lets kids create their own Space Hero and embark on an epic story-driven intergalactic adventure. Along the way, players can personalise their hero, adopt pet Kritterz, make new friends and explore an ever expanding galaxy full of quests, adventure and fun. Rated PEGI-OK, E for Everyone and certified kidSAFE+, Space Heroes Universe is a hit with both kids and parents, having secured Creative Child Magazine’s 2012 Game of the Year as well as the Mom’s Choice Awards Silver Medal and a Parent’s Choice Approved Award. With one and six month memberships available, Space Heroes membership cards unlock members-only features for unlimited fun and adventure. Members can personalise their hero, adopt virtual pet kritterz, decorate their hero’s homepad, turbo-charge their Starjets, rock out at exclusive events and explore the entire game experience.

Phil Mason, Bubble Gum Interactive CEO said “With the rapid growth of Space Heroes Universe, we’re making it easier than ever for families to upgrade to the benefits of membership. It’s a fantastic time as we roll into the festive season and we’re looking forward to seeing many new heroes blast off for epic adventures this holidays!”

Space Heroes virtual world membership cards will soon be launching in Brazil and the UK with more countries to follow in 2013 to serve the global fanbase. This complements the secure credit card billing which is already available in 12 currencies.

Kids can strap on their jetpacks, fire up their starjets and blast off for adventure at www.spaceheroes.com.
