So what is Little Space Heroes? Well the website sums it up best:
“Little Space Heroes is an upcoming virtual universe – a social online gaming experience in which kids get to create their own character and explore a universe full of fun and adventure. The game is all about adventure, mystery and discovery. Children are encouraged to work together as they go on quests, play mini-games and solve mysteries. Learning the art of team play and sharing, socialising and communicating are cornerstone elements of the Little Space Heroes game. We know how much children love to express themselves. Little Space Heroes lets players customise their own character and create their own story, with plenty of opportunities for role playing and imaginative play.”
