June 2007– Do you know a little boy or girl who’d love a cute pet? Well now’s your chance to make their dream come true, thanks to Focus Multimedia!
Two great new PC CD-ROM titles join Focus’ range of budget PC software, retailing at just£9.99 each! Catz® and Dogz® are here! Licensed from Ubisoft, these two virtual pet titles will be their best friendz for life!
In Catz® children can choose their pet from several breeds: Abyssinian, Siamese, Maine Coon, Bengal and Burmese. They then have to feed, clean and take care of their kitten. Players can also teach their pet tricks, but must remember to give it love and affection– it will run away if it feels neglected!
Children can adopt and raise a cute puppy of their very own in Dogz®! Choose an adorable puppy from the following: Beagle, German Shepherd, Pug, Border, Collie and Labrador Retriever puppies. It’s then up to your children to raise and train it just like a real dog.
Features in both titles include:
• Play with your pet indoors and outside.
• Take photos for your scrapbook.
• Printable adoption certificate.
• Over 120 items available for your pet.
• Enter your pet into talent shows or complete“tricks of the day” to earn money to buy cute outfits, toys and food.
Craig Johnson, managing director of Focus Multimedia, commented:“I’m delighted to have licensed these two products from Ubisoft, particularly as the popularity of virtual pet software has never been higher. Catz® and Dogz® are the original virtual pet software brands, which have been often copied but never surpassed. We've sold over half a million units of the series to date, so there is already huge awareness of the brand."
Catz® and Dogz® are available now for a suggested retail price of just£9.99 each including VAT, from all good retail outlets of PC software. This product is also available to purchase direct from www.focusmm.co.uk.
