DECK THE HALLS WITH TODAY'S LAUNCH OF THE MICROVOLTS HOLIDAY SPECIAL UPDATE 

Markham, Canada December 16, 2011 - Rock Hippo Productions Ltd. announced today the launch of their exciting Holiday Special update for the popular cartoon style third-person shooter, MicroVolts.   Santa's sleigh brings a sack full of holiday accessories, weapons and holiday events for players who've made the naughty OR nice list this year.  Players can visit www.MicroVolts.com for all the festive details and to check out the new MicroVolts Holiday Special video for their rendition of "The C.H.I.P. That Stole Christmas".

"The holiday events have already begun heating up the servers and players have been incredibly creative so far in our Deck The Walls Wallpaper Contest," said Howard He, President and CEO of Rock Hippo Productions.  "We are looking forward to seeing how players approach the new weapons challenge and which arms become the most popular!"

All new seasonal Costume Bundles, accessories and weapons are here-including Naomi's new Holiday outfits, which include a Sleigh Ride Get Up and a Santa's Elves Outfit that might not be ideal for keeping her warm in the winter cold, but are sure to heat up the battlefield!  Players can also perform their best Santa impersonation in C.H.I.P.'s Saint Nick and Kris Kringle Costumes! Give those naughty MicroVolters a good whack and a taste of the new Candy Cane melee weapon and don't forget about the new line of grenade launchers that also comes out today!

With the introduction of a new game setting, MicroVolters will be tested on their weapons expertise- If limited to only three weapons in your arsenal, which would you choose?  With this new game setting, players must choose wisely and learn their counter weapons!  Players will start the match with only a melee weapon and 2 weapons of choice. but will they remain a weapon loyalist or can they adapt their arsenal to stay on top?

Armed with all the new accessories, weapons, outfits and more, MicroVolters can also jump in and enjoy the ongoing Holiday events.  There is still time to sign up for the Deck the Walls Wallpaper Contest and players can stay on top of their game by participating in the 12 days of MicroVolts event.  In addition, MicroVolts will be holding a big Boxing Day sale on December 26th.  For current and upcoming events, visit   www.MicroVolts.com.

The MicroVolts Team would also like to draw attention towards the worthy cause of helping people suffering from a fear of toys and dolls, also known as Pediophobia.  Players are strongly encouraged to view the London Pediophobia Mental Health Centre's new commercial @ http://youtu.be/zKfGn_x1svw and investigate their website at www.fearnotoys.com further.
