Leicester, March 26th– SouthPeak Interactive Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SOPK; SOPKU; SOPKW; SOPKZ) is today announcing that its mighty mushroom games are coming to Wii™ and Nintendo DS™ tomorrow in the UK. Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars on Wii and Rise of the Fungi on Nintendo DS, offer gamers a unique and compelling platform adventure, from the perspective of a tiny hero with a big mission.
To get gamers in the mood for some fungi fun, SouthPeak Games is also releasing a specially-created Mushroom Men cookery book, featuring a host of taste-bud tickling recipes… and one terrible dessert.
In Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi players choose from three classes of‘shrooms - Heavy, Sage or Scout– each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Players then take up makeshift weapons to battle in defense of the peaceful Bolete and technological Morel societies. Set in a 2.5D side-scrolling action-platformer, the story takes on a perspective of three-inch tall mushrooms in a vast human landscape.
Your journey will take you through the early stages of the mushroom world, as these tribes set up communities, build homes and craft weapons to defend the life they’ve so recently received. Step through mushroom history as these societies battle for their place and to save their kind from the war-like Lepiotas and Amanitas mushrooms.
Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars takes a slightly different direction. Picking up after the Rise of the Fungi story concludes, players end up under the mushroom cap of PAX, an outcast mushroom trying to find his place in society. Set in a third-person action-platformer, PAX learns he’s different for a very good reason, uncovering new talents he never knew he had.
Using the Wii Remote™ motion controls, players have PAX running, jumping, gliding and spore-powering his way through level after level of everyday scenarios from a three-inch perspective. Join him in his quest to help the Bolete and Morel tribes repel the attacks of the Lepiota and Amanita armies, all the while discovering what his role is in this wild new world.
