Christmas Ed. of Chicken Invaders® 4 Game Launched for PC/Mac/Linux

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The latest holiday installment of the Chicken Invaders® casual space shooter series has players battling intergalactic chickens to save Christmas from an omelette-flavored doom.

Athens, GR -- November 28, 2011 -- InterAction studios announced today the immediate availability of the Christmas Edition 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 destroying Christmas by 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.

"InterAction studios has a long-standing tradition of creating Christmas-themed editions of our games, and Chicken Invaders® is no exception," explained Konstantinos Prouskas, founder of InterAction studios. "For this episode, we've pulled out all the stops to create the most immersively festive experience to date. From the wonderful Christmas rendition of the opening main theme, to the attacking chickens dressed up as Christmas elves, to the squawk-tastic holiday conclusion, everything is bursting at the seams with Christmas spirit."

The Christmas Edition is characterized by festively dressed chickens which attack relentlessly in colorful groups and meticulously choreographed formations. The chicken fray is punctuated by fights against massive enemies disguised as Christmas elves, Santas, and other well-known holiday figures. Major enemies are also appropriately decorated with rows of blinking Christmas lights. Christmas ornaments, bows, ribbons, bells, and holly fly everywhere during the heat of battle. Floating Christmas gifts can be collected in order to extend the arsenal at the player's disposal. There's even a suitably festive snow blizzard -- in deep space! On-screen action is accompanied by original renditions of popular Christmas carols, composed specifically for this episode.

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 13 languages and made available in 154 countries, reaching Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, mobile phones, and retail outlets alike.
