L.S.P announced today that they have signed a licensing agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group to develop interactive games inspired by Sitting Ducks, the whimsical CGI children's animated series based on the world-famous characters created by renowned pop artist Michael Bedard. Sitting Ducks, the game, will be released for PS2, Xbox, PC and Game Boy Advance in the fourth quarter of 2003. A few screens for the youngsters amongst us ...

The games are set in the quirky world of DuckTown, where opposites attract between Bill the duck and Aldo the alligator, to form an unlikely friendship of comic proportions. Players can play as Bill, our feathered hero, in this third person adventure. In the game Bill walks, runs and jumps and even catches a ride on a scooter. The beautiful colourful graphics bring the television series into real time, and the facial expressions bring out all the humour and personality of the characters.

"We are thrilled to work with L.S.P to bring this wonderful world to gamers with the multi-format launch based on the Sitting Ducks TV series," stated Bruno Maglione, Managing Director of Universal Studios Consumer Products Group in Europe. "Sitting Ducks plays like a sitcom with a diverse cast of amusing, eccentric and unusual characters involved in extraordinary stories of ordinary life - LSP's games will reflect the spirit of the series."

Sitting Ducks, produced by Universal Pictures Visual Programming in association with Sitting Ducks Productions, is distributed by Universal Television Distribution and is licensed in more than 30 territories around the world, including the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Portugal, Greece, Canada and Australia.

Capitalizing on the latest in 3D animation and CGI technology, Sitting Ducks uses a ground breaking modeling and animation system that gives the show a warmer and more lifelike appearance. This innovative series follows the feathered citizens of "DuckTown," focusing on the unusual friendship of a duck named Bill and his best pal, an alligator named Aldo who share an unlikely friendship despite coming from opposite ends of the food chain.
