Bluey is hitting the gaming scene with Bluey: The Videogame

If there’s anyone intent on pushing the family-friendly gaming scene, catering for the younger audience more than anything, it’s Outright Games. They look to be continuing that trend with the confirmation of Bluey: The Videogame too. And it’s coming in November. 

Bluey: The Videogame is Outright Games’ latest foray into the kids gaming market. As Outright hope to build on the likes of Peppa Pig, Baby Shark, Bratz and the like with another kids-targeted title. 

A new entry into Outright Games’ kids market

Bluey: The Videogame is the first ever video game to feature the little pup, as Outright Games and BBC Studios come together for release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and PC. And that November launch? Yeah, stick the 17th in your diaries. 

As you would expect to hear, Bluey: The Videogame is based on the Emmy and BAFTA award winning TV show. It follows Bluey (obvs), as well as her mum, dad and sister, Bingo. And it’s with these guys were the fun and games commence. 

You see, like every kid her age, Bluey loves to play games. It’s here where her energy comes to the fore, with hilarity bringing her family and the whole neighbourhood into her world of fun. Bluey showcases the joyful simplicity that can be found in families, by turning everyday moments into adventures.     

Bluey: The Videogame will let you become immersed in this world. Playing out as an interactive sandbox adventure, players will get to navigate faithfully recreated and iconic locations including Bluey’s home – fully explorable for the first time.

There will also be the opportunity to engage in story-driven episodic gameplay. And that comes with activities inspired by fan favourite moments from the show. And further will be a brand-new four-part storyline. This will have been created in partnership with Artax Games, BBC Studios and the show’s producers at Ludo Studio.

Multiplayer Bluey? Yes please.

It’s in the multiplayer scene where this should really excel though. Up to four players can play as Bluey, her sister Bingo, Mum, and Dad. And from there they’ll look to embrace their inner Bluey with minigames seen in the show. ‘Keepy Uppy’ and ‘Magic Xylophone’ will be in place, as you look to complete activities to earn in-game rewards. These will include new costumes, stickers, playable episodes, and locations.

And yes, the English speaking voice cast from the game will be present. This will include Dad, Bandit (David McCormack) and Mum, Chilli (Melanie Zanetti). Several of the iconic, chart-topping Bluey music tracks from composer Joff Bush will also be featured on the game’s soundtrack. But you should expect all new music created by the development team too.     

“Bluey: The Videogame” has been designed with flexibility in mind, allowing fans to engage with the game and explore it at their own pace with the ability to jump between story quests, activities, and exploration at any time. Variable difficulty features have been included that allow the game to be accessible and fun for both preschool and older fans including UI on/off toggle, simple written on-screen instructions and full voice-over. Players will be able to utilise physics-based mechanics to manipulate objects, interact with the world around them, add additional challenges to mini-games, and support free-play in the sandbox. 

The devs chat

Stephanie Malham, COO of Outright Games said: “We’re incredibly excited to be working with BBC Studios as a brand-new licensing partner for Outright Games and to help expand the phenomenal world of Bluey into video games. It is always our goal to create games that can act as an entry point to the world of video games and to some of the most important entertainment franchises on the planet like Bluey. It’s a thrill for us to bring Bluey’s world to life with a level of interactivity that has never been seen before and by ensuring that the game is accessible and enjoyable for all ages we know fans across the globe will be delighted.”

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
