After a five-year absence from the gaming scene, Krome Studios wants to bring Ty the Tasmanian Tiger back into the limelight, and they're not afraid to show you his underwear to do it.
Krome has launched Bush Rescue HQ on Facebook, calling it "the social hub of the Ty universe," which is funny, because I didn't know Ty had a universe anymore, much less enough fans to score his own social hub. Still, here we are, and so far 155 fans have flocked to the page, eager for news of the next Ty game.
Right now, visitors to the page can create their own dingo characters, dressing them up so they look slightly different from Ty himself. Krome is calling this the first stage of Bush Rescue HQ, with plans to utilize the characters you create in a Facebook game at a later date.
The page will update every Tuesday. Krome is calling them "Ty Tuesdays." We probably won't.
"I'm very excited to be bringing back our signature character," said Steve Stamatiadis, creator of TY and Creative Director of Krome Studios, "we have had great success with him in the past, and we feel there's a huge opportunity to introduce TY the Tasmanian Tiger to Facebook gamers around the world."
Facebook gamers. meet Ty. He was in some games.
