The latest ARTHUR game, D.W.’s Island Bugball, is now live!
You can find it on the ARTHUR web site, and in the PBS Kids games app as the featured game.
D.W.’s Island Bugball is a minigolf-style game celebrating D.W.’s birthday! In PLAY mode, players can enjoy the nine-hole bugball course, with the ability to adjust the difficulty level. In MAKE mode, players can create their own hole, customizing it however they want. Full of variability, and fun and challenging gameplay, D.W’s Island Bugball gives players the chance to experiment and test levels — and even offer challenges to their friends and family!
Mad “Monster Island” props go out to Gentry (Senior Producer), Jeff (designer), Jolin (developer), and Mollie (production coordinator) for all their skill and creativity in bringing this game to life. Also, a big thanks to Tara (designer) and Alan for their support and guidance; and to Carol, Nicole, Deb and Tolon for providing great feedback along the way.
So, head on over to D.W.’s Island Bugball, and play a few rounds! 🙂

In time for Earth Day, we launch Outdoor Family Fun with Plum for iOS and Android.
Does your family have a few minutes at the bus stop or 15 minutes to play outside? Try a mission from Plum and start building a healthy habit! Spending time outdoors has many benefits and nature is all around – you just have to look!
This app offers daily activities that will get your family outside, exploring your neighborhood and learning about nature. It’s part of PLUM LANDING, a PBS KIDS project that helps kids develop a love for this amazing and beautiful planet we call home.
