The Discovery Channel – Jimi Rock World is all about education, exploration, philanthropy and fun! This virtual world is an undersea adventure “edutainment” site where your child will be introduced to the natural wonders that lie beneath the beautiful oceans of the world.

Client: Discovery Kids & Fish Fun Video
URL:    http://www.jimirock.com
Type:   Virtual World with Mini Games


Challenge:

While very in-tune with the needs of their audience, the current Jimi Rock world needed an entirely new user experience that elevated play quality and experience to new levels while keeping in-line to their core values.

Solution:

Posed with the challenge of a client with a limited budget, ISO was able to create a new portal to allow players to jump from the old current world to the new beta world. The new world gives users the ability to get a taste for the new sights and sounds of a refreshed game experience, in addition to personalizing in detail their own avatar, playing unique games, and exploring more rewarding quests.

Players are able to visit far-off locations within a virtual world that brings the experience of real life!  Learn Fun Facts about fish and other sea animals in Jimi’s Sea School. In addition to playing games, players can also create art as well as earn points to increase the uniqueness of their personal avatar.

ISO also added a real-time moderator feature which allows players talk to a designated “concierge” of this ever expanding ocean virtual adventure.
