New Retail Distribution, Marketing Agreements in Place with Navarre, SMP

They are veterinarian simulation Farm Vet (PC), charity platformer The Tuttles Madcap Misadventures: Starlight Charity Challenge (PC/Mac), popular casual game Fever Frenzy (PC) and simulation Pet Pals: Animal Doctor (PC/Mac).

In addition, Strategic Marketing Partners, Inc (SMP) will represent the same Legacy titles to game resellers and distributors.
"As a female and a mom, I have a slightly different perspective than most heads of game companies," said Legacy's President Ariella Lehrer. "I think the extra effort we make to insure Legacy's games are thoughtful and engaging resonates with mainstream audiences."
