Chicken Invaders® 4 Game Launched for PC, Mac, Linux

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Athens, GR -- December 6, 2010 -- InterAction studios announced today the immediate availability of "Ultimate Omelette", the latest episode in its flagship Chicken Invaders® series of games appropriate for all ages. The game puts players at the forefront of a battle against invading intergalactic chickens, bent on revenge against the human race for our oppression of Earth chickens. In this episode, the chickens have constructed a gigantic cannon capable of launching planet-scale eggs against Earth, with the ultimate goal of encrusting humanity in an impenetrable wall made of egg white. Joined by an unlikely ally, players will travel to foreign, unexplored galaxies in an effort to locate and destroy the egg cannon before it reaches Earth.

"Chicken Invaders® has a long-standing and acclaimed history, and has developed a very dedicated following over the years," explained Konstantinos Prouskas, founder of InterAction studios. "For this episode, the challenge was to innovate with fresh gameplay elements and scenarios while still preserving the unmistakable charm and universal appeal of previous games. It's very hard to improve on a great recipe, but I'm happy to say that we've done exactly that. Ultimate Omelette delivers the most intense and enjoyable chicken experience to date, pleasing both hard-core fans and newcomers alike."

The enemy repertoire has been significantly broadened, introducing several different kinds of chickens which attack relentlessly in colorful groups and meticulously choreographed formations. The chicken fray is punctuated by fights against boss enemies spanning up to three times the size of the screen. The arsenal at the player's disposal has also been correspondingly extended, with three new weapons and four kinds of supporting satellites providing additional firepower. The player's intergalactic journey is also accentuated by unique fantastic scenarios, such as navigating through a field of gigantic floating feathers, or dodging molten planet chunks during a supernova explosion.

Chicken Invaders® was introduced in 1997, with the game series making its first public appearance in 1999. Since then, it has won over 50 awards and has been downloaded over 150,000,000 times. It has been translated to 9 languages and made available in 154 countries, reaching Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, mobile phones, and retail outlets alike.
