Playing This Christmas At A Multimedia PC Near You

Motion picture companies are exploiting the CD-ROM format to release interactive stories featuring footage from box office hits. The CD-ROM software contains not only the movie story, but puzzles, games and other activities aimed at children. One of the best selling products so far in this category has been ‘The Lion King,’ from Walt Disney. Other motion picture companies are developing products aimed at older audiences.

Playing this Christmas at a multimedia PC near you: CD-ROM spin-offs of box office hits.

Media and entertainment conglomerates have been scrambling to build subsidiaries in CD-ROM software development, and for many of these companies, popular movies are proving to be extremely viable – and profitable content.

While the concept of bringing Hollywood to the PC has aroused skepticism about consumer demand, as well as heated debates over what makes a CD-ROM movie truly interactive, the numbers at retail are generally positive for these titles.

Disney‘s Animated Story Book: The Lion King and the Aladdin Activity Center, released in early November, are the debut CD-ROM titles from Disney Software, (which, as of Dec. 5, is now Disney Interactive, a multimedia subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company).

The two tides have sold “incredibly well” since their release, according to Steve Fields, Disney’s senior vice president of multimedia. “Target, one of our primary retailers, has told us The Lion King is their best selling CD-ROM title ever,” he said. (Target declined comment.)

Silver Screen Takes CD-ROM

One of the early champions of multimedia, (he designed the top-selling Bookshelf for Microsoft in the mid-1980s, and later joined the corporation as vice president of CD-ROM development), Lopez said The PageMaster provided ideal material for the CD-ROM format.

“We were blessed with a great story and wonderful characters to work with, and we tried to draw from the movie as much as we could,” he said. The PageMaster CD-ROM, which is currently available at retail stores, also incorporates characters not introduced in the movie or book, into 860 scenes and more than 5,000 frames of animation.

According to Lopez, there’s a fine line between adapting a movie tide for the CD-ROM platform and creating a successful interactive product for the current market.

“You’ve got to do more than make a linear movie for the PC, which is what a good number of interactive movie titles out there right now are doing,” he said.

“The PageMaster’s recognizability through promotional campaigns has been an important factor in its success. But without a truly interactive format, without a strong storyline and a compelling goal awaiting the player at the end, the product doesn’t stand a chance of doing well.”

Lopez said Mammoth Micro Productions and Turner Interactive would be announcing plans for future CD-ROM products at CES.

Turner Interactive currently has another CD-ROM movie title on the market. In March, the company released multimedia Gettysburg, based on Gettysburg the movie, which was Turner Pictures, first major motion picture production.
