This initiative is another great example of Oberon Media's ability to deliver added value to game developers by working with one of their portal partners to utilize an exclusive period prior to the launch of a game. In the case of LUXOR Evolved , MSN Games will use the exclusivity period to promote the game via increased promotions including MSN Games homepage placement, banners on Windows Live, promotion through MSN's social media channels and more.
"MumboJumbo's LUXOR franchise has been incredibly popular throughout the years, and we know loyal fans have been looking forward to the next installment," said Bob Hayes, President and COO at Oberon Media. "The franchise's global popularity makes it a perfect choice to launch exclusively with one of our portal partners. By working together with MSN Games on our joint marketing and promotional activities, we're pleased to help drive increased awareness and sales with current and new fans."
"As this version of LUXOR raises the bar for the franchise and takes the traditional marble-shooter gameplay to an all-new level, we're thrilled about Oberon Media's ability to bring the game to MSN Games players a week in advance of the official global launch, " said Mark Cottam, CEO of MumboJumbo.
LUXOR Evolved is an all-new take on MumboJumbo's keystone marble-shooter franchise, and features fast and furious puzzle gameplay in a new art style that harkens back to arcade classics. The game will feature 65 levels of marble-matching, 20 earnable power-ups, three super power-ups that can temporarily upgrade your shooter, unlockable secret levels and four difficulty modes.
Following the global exclusive period, LUXOR Evolved will launch across a worldwide array of game sites including www.mumbojumbo.com.
