The #Classof2020 is all dressed up with nowhere to go. As COVID-19 continues to spread, they’re facing dwindling employment opportunities and nixed job offers, throwing one of the most foundational periods of their lives into complete chaos: https://t.co/9aknW2Mby6 pic.twitter.com/j9rAK8ARC7

Today sees the launch of the latest ARTHUR HTML5 game, Moonlight Mazes!
Buster and D.W. are visiting the Read family farm, exploring the corn mazes at night. It’s your job to help them collect animals and rocks in each maze, but be careful: the mazes get harder as they go along.
So bring your sense of adventure (and your sense of direction) to explore the quiet wonder of nature at night! And in case you get nervous, rest assured that Buster and D.W. will be with you all the way!
The team includes Jeff (Design) who heads off this week to begin a career in teaching. We’ll miss you and all the great work you’ve done for ARTHUR and so many other projects. We also had Eric (Tech), Elizabeth & Kimberlee (Editorial), Kate (Business Manager), and Gentry (Producer).
You’ll find the game on the ARTHUR web site and in the PBS Kids Games App.
In our new HTML5 game for PBS KIDS, Arthur’s Park, Arthur sees an empty lot and realizes it would make a great park!
In a board game setting with mini-features, players help Arthur give a speech to gather public support; clean up the lot; hold a bake sale to raise funds; purchase items; and finally build the park. Based on a curriculum of active citizenship and civic engagement, Arthur’s Park models one way to get involved with your own community!
Dark Bunny Needs Your Help! is a new cooperative ARTHUR game.
Based on a video game that appears in an episode of ARTHUR, Dark Bunny brings players into the world of Dark Bunny – with Sue Ellen or Bionic Bunny as a sidekick – on a quest to save the people of The City from the bad energy of Dr. Aardvarkian.
Fly rocket scooters to collect fuel (and snacks!), protect others, and rescue citizens and pets who have been captured by the nefarious ne’er-do-well. This HTML5 game has one- and two-player modes, allowing for cooperation both between the characters AND between players.
So team up with Dark Bunny, Sue Ellen, and Bionic Bunny, and work together to defeat the infamous Dr. Aardvarkian once and for all!
You’ll find the game at: https://pbskids.org/arthur/games/dark-bunny
If you have the FreeTime Unlimited Service from Amazon, try our brand new Alexa skill! It’s called “Hey Arthur!” and it features jokes, tips, trivia, and even exercise routines with Arthur, Muffy, and Buster!
You can find over two hours of audio fun in the current version, and there’ll be double that with our Version 2 upgrade this spring.
The ARTHUR Alexa team includes Bill, Gentry, Sienna, Jeff#1, Lizzy, Tina, Jeff#2, Jon, Deb, Nicole, Madeleine, Bob, Terry, Carol, Evie, Alan and our pals at QCatalyst.
New research on our AIMS project.
ANIMAL HOME BUILDER, our latest ARTHUR game, is available now on pbskids.org and the PBS Kids Games App. Based on a DIY curriculum, ANIMAL HOME BUILDER lets players help George build cozy areas for the various cats, dogs, rabbits, and birds that his friends bring in. Players select and paint walls, cut out doors, hammer down roofs, and choose accessories to make these animals as happy as they can be.
… for three dangerously heavy, but beautiful awards.
