Pet Adoption Casual Game Launches on Leading Game Portal
LANGHORNE, Pa., January 22, 2008– Casual games developer and publisher eGames, Inc. (Other OTC: EGAM.PK), ) announced today that its new pet adoption game, Purrfect Pet Shop™ launched online on BigFishGames.com on January 18, kicking off two weeks of exclusive placement on the popular casual games portal. During the exclusive period, Big Fish Games will heavily promote the game to millions of casual game fans.
“The Big Fish Games user base is one of the largest casual game communities online, making their site an ideal launching point for Purrfect Pet Shop,” said eGames Product Manager Greg Zesinger.“With earlier releases including Burger Island™, Puzzle City™, and Defender of the Crown®: Heroes Live Forever, Big Fish Games has served as a strong distribution partner to eGames, and we are extremely pleased to expand our relationship with Purrfect Pet Shop.”
“We are excited to partner with eGames and offer Purrfect Pet Shop exclusively on BigFishGames.com,” said Nate Webb, Director, Partner Relations.“eGames continues to develop high quality titles that resonate extremely well with our audience and we are thrilled to be working with them on this release.”
Purrfect Pet Shop puts players in charge of an animal adoption center, caring for strays as they arrive at the shelter, and matching them with prospective owners based on the customer’s desired pet traits. At the same time, players must nurse a special customizable dog or cat back to health, choosing from thousands of possible pet combinations, and earn the animal’s trust through playing with toys, going on special trips to the aquarium or butcher shop, careful grooming, medical care, and the occasional tasty treat. While earning money in the shelter through donations from satisfied customers, players purchase center upgrades and special items in order to get their friend ready for adoption by the end of the game.
“We are confident Purrfect Pet Shop will thrill fans of the time management genre with its unprecedented gameplay, nursing abandoned pets back to health, and then matching them with their perfect owners,” said Zesinger.“With the unique addition of a special Kiddies mode designed especially for young gamers to play and share with the adults in their lives combined with the ability to take pictures of your special pet and email them to your friends, Purrfect Pet Shop provides a feature-rich experience that casual gamers and pet lovers of all ages are sure to enjoy.”
Free trials of Purrfect Pet Shop are now available at http://www.bigfishgames.com and http://www.egames.com, with the full game available for purchase at $19.99. An online version of the game is under development, and should be available in the next few weeks.
