Nickelodeon's Nick.com will launch BubbleCast, its first multi-player interactive TV/online gaming experience for kids on Feb. 5. BubbleCast is designed for kids to play on their computers as they're watching Nickelodeon TV shows. BubbleCast will be the featured interactive component during "The Rugrats" as part of the network's afternoon programming block, Slime Time Live. Kids need to watch Slime Time Live and log on to Nick.com. In the BubbleCast area, kids will be grouped into "rooms" to play with other competitors. As BubbleCast begins, the computer will prompt kids with a "bubbling sound" and as kids watch "Rugrats" on TV, BubbleCast will ask questions in real-time about what's happening in the show. At then end of the game, the names of the top BubbleCast players will be broadcast on Slime Time Live.
