GFI Announces Three New Names for Three Great Games.

Moscow, August 10, 2007 -

Danger, Risk, Exhilaration…words that define life on the edge– the Jagged Edge. They also best describe the game formerly known as Jazz: Hired Guns. GFI is pleased to announce that JAZZ has acquired a new name: Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge, a name that best describes the life of risk and danger that you’ll lead in this action-packed turn-based tactical game where you’ll be in control of leading a group of seasoned mercenaries through the African countryside.

Your boss is driving you crazy and your neighbors are always shoving their noses into your business. How do you cure them of these bad habits? Sneak around and set up a series of wildly humorous pranks of course! Vendetta: Kill Boss and Vendetta: On Vacation are all about playing tricks and pranks around the office and at home, so we are pleased to announce two“spanking” new titles that better convey the action that awaits you - Pranksterz: Off your Boss and Pranksterz: No Rest for the Wicked.
