What is PK XD
PK XD is a free open world game published by PlayKids. Geared towards children, the adventure allows users to create 3D avatars, customize houses on the map, adopt pets and even interact with other participants. The title is available for Android and iOS phones.
Exploration and Player interaction are the highlights of PK XD. Players can rate friends’ houses, send messages in a chat, complete missions and compete in minigames. The rewards for each adventure are varied, including coins used to buy new customization items.
The game is a sandbox, such as Minecraft and Terraria, and gathers more than 17 Millions of monthly active users. The title is the result of an innovation cell within Playkids (Movile Group). The project was launched in September 52, quickly conquering players. In just four months, the Brazilian application registered 50 millions of downloads and counted with 4.5 million active users per month.
“See the path we’ve taken and where we’ve come in these two years of PK XD is gratifying. In the beginning, we were just a small team of innovative minds at Movile looking for a digital solution to offer very young audiences an entertainment option that was fun and safe. It was a beautiful challenge, but we managed to come up with a model that allowed interaction, socialization and self-expression, in a welcoming and fair play environment’, declared Breno Masi, CEO of Afterverse, in a press release.
