Motorola Spotlight Player updated with new interactive cartoon, "Buggy Night"

Motorola Spotlight Player updated with new interactive cartoon,
One of the more pleasant surprises for Moto X users a bit after the device was released was the sudden emergence of the Motorola Spotlight Player and its first interactive story "Windy Day". The story first appeared as an animated red hat dancing on your display, and now a new story has appeared in the shape of a bug crawling around your homescreen. The new Spotlight story is called "Buggy Night".

"Buggy Night" has a very similar aesthetic to "Windy Day", but rather than follow a mouse through the woods, this time you're following a pack of bugs being hunted by a big frog. The whole story is quite short, it only took us a couple minutes to get through it, but it is an amusing time and would be great for kids. The credit for this story is going to another Pixar animator and artist who worked on "Windy Day", Mark Oftedal. 

If you have a Moto X, but don't see the bug, just a reminder that the Motorola Spotlight Player doesn't live in your app tray. Rather, you need to drop the Spotlight widget on your homescreen to get at the stories.

I watched it. It was cute... something my daughter will enjoy. I think I liked Windy Day more though. It just seemed like a lot more work went into it. Still excited to see what they do next though.

I love it! And they got the artist that did the story "I Want My Hat Back", which is a hilariously awesome children's book.

For me, I had a bug run across my screen letting me know that I had a new story. It is quite cute and just as fun as Windy Day. Oh, and Windy Day is still available you just will need to re-download it to your device.

Sadly, my phone was asleep when the bug came out so I did get the surprise of having something oddly animated come across the screen like I did the hat for Windy Day.
