ABANDON INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT UNVEILS NEW FREAKY CREATURES BATTLING SCREENSHOTS

MALIBU, Calif.– Jan. 22, 2009– Abandon Interactive Entertainment today released new screenshots showing turn-based combat in the upcoming online Creature building and battling game, Freaky Creatures. Hitting shelves in early 2009, Freaky Creatures combines the best of online multiplayer PC gaming, collectible action figures, virtual worlds and social networking.

In Freaky Creatures, players start by customizing a Creature using a variety of parts and powers.  Players then take their Creature into battle with other online players fighting for points, experience and Creature Credits. Creature Credits can then be used to buy more parts, powers and objects for the creature’s lair.

These new assets show six of the ten creatures that will be available when the game ships to retail.  The screenshots reveal various battling sequences that occur as players progress in the game.  Each of the Creature’s parts, powers and unique abilities are all taken into account as players develop strategies to win battles.

The Freaky Creatures experience begins with a starter pack that includes two action figures and a 1GB reusable flash drive.  Once players have created their unique creature, they can jump straight into battle or build a lair in which they can care for their Creature and hang out with friends.  They can also participate in the Freaky Creatures community, personalize their homepage, play mini-games, join tournaments, check leaderboards, trade items, read animated comics, enter contests, form teams and much more in the ever expanding Freaky Creatures Universe. Starter packs will be available in early 2009 for $19.99.
