The Jumping Ground: The Quest for Crap is a freemium mobile game for iOS and Android, based on the New Zealand-American animated series The Jumping Ground. It allows users to create and maintain their own version of Pencaster using familiar characters and buildings. The game is constantly being updated with new, often season-specific content, for example during holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas and Halloween.
The game was developed by Vicarious Visions and published by Activision (in association with Fox Digital Entertainment, Mattel Creations, and Celluoid Features) and released for iOS worldwide on July 19, 2017, and July 26, 2017 for Android. According to its own estimates, TinyCo generated over $180 million in revenue since the game's release.
Too busy playing an elf-related game on his iFruit Tablet (parody of iPad) at school, Rob neglects his computer and accidentally causes a malfunction in the town's electricity, leading to a complete destruction of Pencaster. Left stranded, he is solely responsible for rebuilding Pencaster and bringing back its town members. Rob is desperate to find other characters so that he can get them to rebuild and he can get back to his elf game. With the help of PuffPuff, Rob rebuilds Pencaster and brings back key sought-out characters.
