CREAT STUDIOS TO RELEASE GERMINATOR FOR THE PLAYSTATION®3 AND PLAYSTATION®VITA

          CANTON, Mass. (February 12, 2013) – Creat Studios today announced the launch of Germinator on PlayStation®Network for the PlayStation®3 and PlayStation® Vita computer entertainment systems. Germinator will be available for PlayStation®3 on February 13 th in Europe and March 5 th in North America, and shortly thereafter for PlayStation®Vita.  Creat’s 21st title for Sony’s PlayStation® Network and first for the handheld Vita platform, Germinator 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.

          “Creat Studios is ecstatic to release our first title for the PlayStation®Vita,” said Jason Benham, Vice President of Development of Creat Studios Inc. “We are excited to expand our PlayStation®Network catalog with our 21 st title and a new platform.” 

          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.  For the PlayStation®3, Germinator offers Sony PlayStation® Move controller support and is presented in full 1080p.

          Germinator includes PlayStation® Trophy support and has been rated “E10+” for Everyone ages 10 and up by the Entertainment Software Rating Board for this platform.
