CREAT STUDIOS TO RELEASE GERMINATOR FOR THE PLAYSTATION® NETWORK

CANTON, Mass. (October 19, 2012) – Creat Studios today announced the upcoming release of Germinator, its newest game for download on the PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system, for North America and Europe.   Germinator marks Creat’s 20th title for Sony’s PlayStation® Network, and features an exciting, character-styled departure from the traditional bubble-popping casual game genre.

Something messy and contagious is festering in suburbia, and only one hero can save the day: The Germinator! Germinator dismisses traditional match-three bubble popping in exchange for combining germ bubble characters of the same color.   Upon collision, germ bubbles merge and grow until they pop into a gooey, splotchy, splattering mess. 

Germinator features a crazy cast of multi-colored bubble germs, each with their own personalities and traits.  Popping the germs in just the right way triggers gooey combination sequences that explode across the screen.  Timing and accuracy are required to prevent the various germs from rising too high.

Local multiplayer lets players battle either their friends or the game’s artificial intelligence.  Over 200 levels provide hours of challenge for casual and expert gamers alike.  Germinator offers Sony PlayStation® Move controller support and is presented in full 1080p.

“Creat Studios is thrilled to launch our 20th game for the PlayStation® Network,” said Vladimir Starzhevsky, co-founder and CEO of Creat Studios Inc. “We are excited to deliver a high-quality casual action game like Germinator as we continue to develop the most engaging and entertaining titles.” 

Germinator will include PlayStation® Trophy support and has been rated “E” for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board for this platform.
