Bubble Gum Interactive's (BGI) free-to-play kids' virtual universe Little Space Heroes has expanded its online payment options.
The successful freemium enterprise has opened up payment services for its premium accounts to 11 different currencies, utilising a real-time payment system which is both 2048 bit SSL encrypted and PCI compliant.
Philip Mason, BGI CEO, said: "Multi-currency billing gives us incredibly global reach in major markets, so we'r really excited to be this far along so early in our lifecycle."
"Well done team, and a big thanks to Commercialisation Australia for their financial assistance and advice which hash elped make the project possible."
BGI recently announced that Little Space Heroes is also being made into a cartoon, which it is hoping should drive the relatively less expensive virtual world into a stronger space against its competitors.
