New York, NY—Jan. 8, 2009—I-play, the world’s leading multi-platform casual games publishing company and a division of Oberon Media, today announced the launch of Fabulous Finds, an interactive game that features a medley of unique game styles that unite in a one-of-a-kind experience. The game is available now for PC download at www.iplay.com, as well as other major casual games portals.
“We’re very excited to be releasing a completely new experience for the casual game fan”, said Don Ryan, COO, Oberon Media, I-play’s parent company.“Fabulous Finds is exceptional in that it has three different types of game styles within one title. Users will be thrilled when they begin playing and realize that seek-and-find is only the beginning.”
Fabulous Finds combines hidden objects, yard sale brainteasers and room renovating fun. The game follows the user who, after inheriting a beautiful home in Carmel, CA from Great Aunt Beatrice, will arrive to find a diamond in the rough. Aunt Bea's larger-than-life personality and equally eccentric collector's eye doesn’t quite fit with the average person’s home-decorating style. With a passion for interior design but a pocketbook that doesn’t quite fit the fervor, there is only one thing to do-have a yard sale! Gamers will sort through rooms to find items that fit the theme of the upcoming yard sale, match shoppers to the treasures they desire and use the profits to redecorate each room. With a knack for selling and an eye for design, casual gamers may find their true calling!
Fabulous Finds brings an exciting twist to the seek-and-find genre where an eye for design and profitable rewards are key. Players will uncover treasures including some that will need repair, polish or assembly to generate a greater value. The more items that are sold, the more extravagant the re-design can be. The game features 10 challenging levels, over 150 yard sale shoppers and unlimited redecorating fun.
