CREAT STUDIOS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF MECHO WARS MINIS FOR THE PLAYSTATION® NETWORK

January 10, 2012 – Creat Studios (Canton, MA) today announced the release of the minis title Mecho Wars for the PlayStation® Network. Mecho Wars will be available for download on the PlayStation®3, offered via PlayStation® Network, in North America on January 10 th for $4.99 and in Europe on January 25 th for €4.99.

Jump into an exciting war between the Winged Crusade and the Landians! Based on the characters and world created by Luc Bernard, Mecho Wars is a turn-based strategy game where you command your troops to expand into enemy territory, control and collect resources, and conquer your enemy’s structures. Don’t forget strategic unit composition and troop positioning as each unit type has its own strengths and weaknesses.

The story of Mecho Wars details the rise of the Winged Crusade in the distant land of Divination Deserts. This is not your typical desert, however, as there is plenty of water that separates land masses. To sustain your army capture factories to expand your maximum army support, take-over cities to earn gold from the rich economic hubs, and beat the enemy by defeating their forces and capturing their H.Q. building. Make sure you pay attention to the environment as the game features a day/night cycle where the water that normally restricts your movement paths during the day freezes once the clock strikes midnight, allowing for unexpected skirmishes and ambushes.

Whether players are looking for intense tactical and strategic gameplay or a leisurely experience that they can play at their own pace, Mecho Wars is able to deliver. In addition to the single-player campaign, Mecho Wars comes with a special set of individual challenge maps and remarkable local multiplayer support on a single device.

Mecho Wars features:

· Rich, Story-Driven Campaign: Capture structures, collect resources, and build your army as you engage in all out battle

· Challenge Maps: Put your tactical wits to the test through 20 individual challenge maps

· Unique Day/Night Cycle: Expertly position your troops for a surprise ambush at night when the water freezes

·  Local Multiplayer: Go head-to-head with a friend as you battle it out for Divination Desert domination

 “We believe the truly wonderful thing about Mecho Wars is that what makes it enjoyable on both a competitive and casual level is the simple sense of fun that the game is built on,” said Vladimir Starzhevsky, CEO of Creat Studios. “ Mecho Wars is one of our favorite games to play at Creat and we are very excited to be able to finally share this game with our Sony PlayStation Network friends and fans.”

Mecho Wars has been rated “E” for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board for this platform.
