Austin, TX, May 9 th, 2013 - - Just days after announcing the launch of Stratotainment, the brand new mobile game publisher and developer excitedly announced a reboot for legendary series Battle Isle and revealed the title for it’s inaugural game, ‘Battle Isle: Threshold Run’.

Thomas Hertzler, Stratotainment Founder and CEO, said, "Having observed the rise of the mobile platforms in the last few years, combined with my personal interest in the turn-based genre in general, I decided that it was long overdue to reboot Battle Isle. Fans of the genre will appreciate how this turn-based strategy war universe evolves. Battle Isle: Threshold Run promises to have an intense new storyline, seriously immersive game play and a few surprises thrown in.”

Mark Hall, VP, commented on the value of Battle Isle as a brand. "When we first formulated a plan for the company, Thomas and I wanted to make more than a game; we wanted to build a franchise.  What better than a worldwide, renowned property such as Battle Isle and from the original creative mind behind it?"  Battle Isle has legions of fans all over the globe; now it's time for the ‘property’ to evolve." Hall concluded with "The value of the Battle Isle name cannot be understated, especially for us as a new company."

Battle Isle: Threshold Run, developed by Thunderdog and Stratotainment, is set for a Q4-2013 release on the iOS mobile platform, exclusively via the online Apple Store.

"The decision to keep Battle Isle: Threshold Run exclusively on the iOS was not easy. Our financial constraints do not allow for much experimentation with platforms. With our focus on creating a viable franchise, it is only fitting, that we introduce the innovative gameplay and user-interface of Battle Isle on the platform that started the mobile games space." Hertzler continued, “Battle Isle: Threshold Run will be the foundation of something innovative and exciting, hence the ‘reboot’. Don’t expect it to be a seamless follow on from anything you’ve seen in the past. Battle Isle : Threshold Run will not require past knowledge, we want newcomers to jump right in.”

The website for Battle Isle : Threshold Run is still in development, but those interested in learning more can find a first look at the early concept art at A Threshold Run page has been established for the Battle Isle community on Facebook located at
