LEGACY INTERACTIVE ANNOUNCES Q1 LINEUP OF RETAIL MAINSTREAM GAMES
New Retail Distribution, Marketing Agreements in Place with Navarre, SMP
Videogame developer and publisher Legacy Interactive announced their first quarter lineup of mainstream PC games for retail distribution in 2008. 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).
Legacy has signed a related agreement with Navarre Distribution Services, Inc. to distribute their lineup of mainstream PC games at retail in North America, beginning with The Tuttles. 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." Farm Vet is a simulation game that centers on real-life animal care situations scripted by real world veterinarians. Farm Vet is being distributed at retail by Vivendi Games and is expected to ship in February for a suggested retail price of U.S. $19.95. A downloadable version will soon be available at www.farmvetgame.com.
The Tuttles Madcap Misadventures: Starlight Charity Challenge, the first Legacy game to fall under the Navarre/SMP agreements, is a charity project with 75% of Legacy's proceeds being given back to benefit seriously ill children. The Tuttles (available now for PC download at www.tuttlesfamilygame.com ) is a classic animated platformer for all ages. Actors William Shatner, Bob Saget, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ashley Tisdale, Dominic Scott Kay, Dave Thomas and Dave Coulier contributed their voices. The Tuttles retail version is expected to ship in March for a suggested retail price of U.S. $19.95.
The highly addictive service style arcade game Fever Frenzy puts players in hospital settings while they attempt to cure patients of crazy ailments like mother goosebumps and third degree sideburns. The retail version of this casual game is also expected to ship in March for a suggested retail price of U.S. $9.95.
Appealing to animal lovers, Pet Pals: Animal Doctor, is a simulation game that puts the player in the role of pet doctor, diagnosing and treating the neighborhood's sick animals. The PC/Mac retail game will be distributed by Navarre in March. Majesco Entertainment just shipped a Nintendo DS(tm) version of the game.
All of Legacy's first quarter releases are rated E for Everyone. The company plans to launch additional games online this quarter.
