Fee Fi Fo Fum! Beanstalk Games is Family Fun!

For Immediate Release

Columbus, Ohio– July 23, 2008- Brighter Minds Media, LLC (Brighter Minds), a wholly owned subsidiary of Brighter Minds Media, Inc. (TSX: BRI. V) is thrilled to announce the launch of BeanstalkGames.com, the online game destination for the whole family. Like Jack ascending the beanstalk, people of any age who have a love for adventure can climb into this exciting new world to discover the newest games and online activities.

Dedicated to bringing the fun of casual games to the whole family, Beanstalk Games will be a one-stop website for game enthusiasts of all ages. The site will host an extensive backlist of titles available for free-to-play trial including a selection of favorites from all the most popular casual gaming categories: puzzle, card and board, mahjong, match three, sim adventure, hidden object, time management, and many more.

Jody McLain, VP of Online Games and Marketing for Brighter Minds feels it is important to have a website devoted to bringing all-inclusive entertainment to the family.“We hope that any member of the family can share in the gaming fun at Beanstalk Games– from mom, dad, grandma and grandpa, to children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews of any age.”

Unlike many available gaming sites, Beanstalk Games will also have games created specifically for the youngest and fastest growing faction of casual game fans– kids. Beanstalk Games is determined to provide families with the same high-level of quality game play for their children that many adult and casual game fans have come to expect for themselves. By searching out and developing content created with kids in mind, and offering a wealth of information that parents and gamers may find helpful in selecting games for children, Beanstalk Games will serve as not only a gaming site but also as a valuable resource for evaluating family games.

“I love playing casual games, but kids are people, too! As a parent, I know that it can be difficult to find appropriate, enriching, and high-quality games for my kids,” notes McLain.“Our vision is to make Beanstalk Games a place that is fun for all ages, but also valuable and useful for parents. By creating user forums and providing reviews from multiple view points, we hope to create a community where parents can find out anything they want to know about the games they, or their kids, are playing.”

The site will offer reviews from notable experts and professional game reviewers, educators, parents, and kids. Beanstalk Games will also offer detailed information about target ages, game content, and ratings (when applicable). Simply by logging in, users will have access to a community website where families can go to find, play, evaluate, and talk about all the latest computer games. Though Beanstalk Games is currently in the beta stage and not all elements have been implemented, Brighter Minds will be continually updating and adding new resources and functionality to the site.

Brighter Minds Media is confident Beanstalk Games will be an immediate hit with members of the entire family. This magical world may not offer gold, but quality time with family is just as valuable…and you won’t have to sell your cow to get there.
