London-based Kuato Studios has announced the launch of a new Famous Five mystery game on the App Store, coinciding with this year’s 75th anniversary of Enid Blyton’s The Famous Five.
Regarded as one of her most popular series, Enid Blyton originally planned to write just six of The Famous Five books but extended the series to 21, owing to reader demand.
The Famous Five app has been designed with all the positive values associated with the books in mind, including friendship, heroism, adventure, love of the outdoors and daring. As with all Kuato games in the Tales Maker series, the app nurtures inquisitive minds and develops literacy skills through storytelling and engaging gameplay. What’s more, users can choose from accessibility options including special dyslexic font and colour overlays to help readability.

The app allows children to explore the iconic world of The Famous Five, a world packed full of adventure, mystery and intrigue! Each mystery features unique characters and iconic locations found in the books, such as the castle ruins of Kirrin Island and Tapper’s Travelling Fair.
The new Kuato game will enthrall The Famous Five enthusiasts as now, not only can they read about the adventures, but they can also help Julian, Dick, Anne, George and their friendly dog Timmy search for clues, question suspects and solve the mysteries they encounter! With multiple solutions and plot combinations, no single story will ever be repeated and once the mystery has been solved, children can enjoy reading their personalised adventures back in their own game generated storybook.
The Famous Five Adventure Game is available now for iOS devices via the Apple App Store priced at £2.99.
