Variety

Here's an article about FusionFall from the Hollywood wonks at Variety. It begins as follows:
There’s been something of a gold rush for free browser-based, kid-friendly online games recently, particularly from cable networks like Nickelodeon and Disney. Cartoon Network enters that mix dramatically with “Fusion Fall,” a “World of Warcraft”-lite game that’s the first one to approach the quality, playability and potential for mass appeal of its older-skewing brethren. Though the tastes of pre-teen boys are as fickle online as on the air, “FusionFall” is sure to grab its target aud’s attention and, if it’s well supported and marketed, could even turn into a solid business of its own.
How about that? Actually, I think the writer, Leigh Alexander, moderated the kids MMO panel at Austin GDC last year, so she apparently knows what she is talking about!
