Big Fish Games Releases Unwell
Mel

Big Fish Games’ Vancouver Studio
Debuts First Game

Big Fish Games announced today the
release of Unwell Mel, an addictive puzzle game and the first title to come out
of Big Fish Games’ recently opened Vancouver, B.C. studio. The Vancouver team –
including artists and developers – allows Big Fish Games to more effectively
expand its genre expertise without sacrificing the depth, quality and creativity
that is the hallmark of Big Fish Games.

“Like all the games that we concept,
develop and release, Unwell Mel is an original in its genre. It’s a creative
twist on match-three games,” said Pat Wylie, vice president of Big Fish Games
Studios. “I’m excited about our Vancouver team; their talent strengthens
Studios, and as we grow the team we can ensure the continued production of great
games.”

“Unwell Mel is a fast-paced,
matching game that charges the player with the diagnosis and treatment of the
very unfortunate Mel,” commented Jake Birkett, game designer at Big Fish Games
Studios. “We’ve paired the game’s match-three mechanic with an assortment of
themed power-ups that give the player a variety of fun and creative ways to cure
Mel’s aliments.”

Unwell Mel is available exclusively
at www.bigfishgames.com.
The trial version can be downloaded for free; the full version of the game is
available for $19.99 (U.S.).
