Charlie’s Royal Coronation is available to play now via RichCast for mobile, PC and Mac
Charlie’s Royal Coronation, a special interactive adventure game to mark King Charles III’s ascendancy to the throne, is now available to download on immersive storytelling app RichCast (www.richcast.com) – delivering a unique commemorative experience to accompany this weekend’s celebrations!
The interactive adventure for all ages has been created by Philip and Andrew Oliver, AKA ‘The Oliver Twins’, UK games industry legends responsible for developing hundreds of video games over the past 40 years.
Charlie’s Royal Coronation puts players in the paws of the story’s hero King Charles Spaniel, guiding him to his Coronation at ‘Barking-ham Palace’ by dodging doggy distractions, including ‘Bone-mouth Beach’!
The Oliver Twins wanted to honour King Charles III in recognition of his support for their Royal Leamington Spa game developer hotbed base in Warwickshire, including his many visits to Warwick University and other education institutions in the region.
With over 2,000 businesses based across the country, supporting 73,000 jobs, the games industry is a UK cultural powerhouse, directly contributing £5bn to the economy – as recognised by the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who recently hosted a reception at Downing Street attended by games industry leaders.
Philip and Andrew Oliver said: “We’ve always been grateful for the support given to the Warwickshire region by King Charles III, so we decided to mark the occasion of his Coronation with a special interactive commemoration. We hope people of all ages will enjoy playing Charlie’s Royal Coronation, including the King’s grandchildren, who we believe are keen gamers!”
