VIVA MEDIA releases MY BOYFRIEND

New York, NY October 16, 2009 - -“OMG, did he just look over?” Viva Media’s MY BOYFRIEND will make every teenage girl’s heart beat faster. Flirting, jealousy and dating are the name of the game in Viva Media’s new adventure designed for girls only!

Imagine a dream vacation in a luxurious island resort– minus the parents plus your BFF. Your heart stops every time you see the cute guy who works at the surf shop. Can you impress your crush? The fun is just beginning when mysterious events shake up paradise.

VIVA Media’s MY BOYFRIEND is a romantic and thrilling journey for the teen girl on the way to her dream boy’s heart. In the beginning players get the opportunity to create their dream boy. In the course of the game they are to win his heart and make him their BOYFRIEND.

Players can experiment with wardrobe and make-up to wow with their style. But it’s not all about the looks. Social skills must be tested in fun mini-games.“Fortune cookie”- personality tests give fun insight about the player’s character. Are you his type? Are you cool enough to outrival your cheating contender? By text-messaging with their best friend, helping out the resort community and going on an exciting detective hunt to catch the mysterious island thief, girls can improve their flirt factor.

Amazing environmental renders let cool surfer-girls experience swimming through crystal clear water, a steaming workout under the palm trees, and sunbathing on pristine beaches. All these elements add up to the perfect backdrop for a happy ending under the setting sun.

Viva Media CEO Carlo Voelker commented,“We are thrilled to provide the teen community with the one and only thing they are truly interested in: First Love! MY BOYFRIEND gives them the opportunity to test their flirting skills in a very realistic but contained environment. It’s pure fun!”
