SEE Virtual Worlds will develop a new Entropia Universe world based on characters from the Universal Monsters brand including the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Phantom of the Opera, Dracula, the Invisible Man, the Mummy, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Visitors to the MMO-like virtual world will play monster hunters, similar to Universal’s Van Helsing character. SEE Virtual Worlds plans to build several Entropia Universe planets based on major entertainment licenses.
Last month, SEE Virtual Worlds announced its first such world, Planet Michael, based on the life and image of Michael Jackson. SEE Virtual Worlds expects to publish both Planet Michael and the Universal Monsters project late next year. SEE Virtual Worlds is a division of SEE, a company that builds “mobile theme parks” based on licenses like Star Trek and Pokemon. SEE Virtual Worlds is developing its Entropia Universe planets in partnership with MindArk, the publisher of Entropia Universe.
