FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

It's time for some real magic!

CHAPEL HILL, NC - 14 May, 2009 - Merscom announced today the official release of Mystic Emporium. Developed by Bamtang Games, Mystic Emporium is a time management game where the player runs an amazing shop full of mystical potions, mysterious customers and magical monsters! The English version is available immediately on major game download sites, including Big Fish Games, RealArcade, iWin and other popular gaming destinations. Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Portuguese and Dutch version will launch next month.

Players take on the role of a witch who has saved for years to chase her dream of opening her own magic shop. After finally saving enough money to buy a location, she finds herself in a run-down shop with just a single cauldron, a handful of potion recipes and just a few customers. It~s up to the players to take her new magic shop and turn it into something magical!

Over time, the shop earns new upgrades, including new potions, magical artifacts and even a pet phoenix! But as the shop improves, more and more customers come shopping and keep the witch, and the players, busier than ever. If players can keep up with the growing demand, they can turn their little magic shop into the best business in town.

Key Features include:

    <*>24 levels of magical fun! <*>Run your own magic shop&buy upgrades to improve it every day! <*>Earn trophies and magic charms as rewards <*>Interesting and mysterious customers <*>Over 30 unique magical items for use and sale <*>Relaxing collapse minigame

"Mystic Emporium brings the magic of Harry Potter to the stalwart time management category and this combination is perfect for our customers," said Lloyd Melnick, Chief Customer Officer at Merscom. "We are confident this game will continue the string of hits we've had over the past 15 months."
