French publisher Anuman Interactive announces a retro-gaming label and new games : "Fire&Forget: The Final Assault" and "Prehistorik"

Montreuil (France), March 25, 2013. Following the acquisition of the French“Joystick” brand, publisher Anuman Interactive now unveils the“Joystick Replay” label, that will include remastered versions of classic games that have marked the video game history.

With its "Joystick Replay" games, Anuman Interactive materializes a first project with the famous (in France) "Joystick" brand. Other projects are currently under reflection. With this brand, the publisher wishes to have a new public discover, and the most nostalgic rediscover some of the arcade greatest titles, as well as console or computer games from the 8 and 16 bits era. Those modernized original creations will keep their initial concepts and their accessibility.

Stephane Longeard, CEO at Anuman Interactive, explains“we thought it was consistent to associate our retro-gaming titles to Joystick, a brand that reminds us of the simmering of video games at the end of the 80s. We are delighted to be able to offer modern versions of some titles that have accompanied our youth, at the same period as the legendary 250 issue French video game magazine.”

The "Joystick Replay" titles will be available at first on PC, Mac, iOS and Android on various associated downloading platforms.

Following this announcement, the first four official“Joystick Replay” labled titles will be revealed this week, marked by the San Francisco GDC.

Players will be able to follow the "Joystick Replay" on Facebook ( www.facebook.com/Joystick.replay) and Twitter ( http://twitter.com/Joystick_replay).

The two first titles to join "Joystick Replay" are the platformer "Prehistorik" and the shoot’em up "Fire and Forget : The Final Assault".
