World Entertainment Studios, LLC, often abbreviated as WES+ and formerly known as WillyWorld Entertainment, is an independent video game development studio founded in New Jersey by William Abeel. Originally started in 2007, WillyWorld was William's collection of artwork, animations, and games uploaded to SheezyArt and, starting in 2010, its own website, which mainly acted as a portfolio of William's works. WillyWorld would eventually branch out to the independent studio WillyWorld Entertainment, which released its first game, Yeah Jam Fury, on June 30, 2012.
In July of 2012, the studio, under the new name of World Entertainment Studios, became an official, state-recognized limited liability company. Its focus shifted mainly towards video game development, eventually abandoning WillyWorld altogether. The company would go on to develop Yeah Jam Fury: U, Me, Everybody!, the first commercial video game to be made by the company, which released on December 15, 2017.
