Announces Fourth Quarter Releases
Franchise titles LUXOR and 7
Wonders among titles on horizon
MumboJumbo revealed what’s in store
for the fourth quarter of 2008 today at Casual Connect in Seattle.
Key to the lineup are the latest
installments in LUXOR and 7 Wonders, the company’s signature franchises. This
fall, LUXOR will venture out of Egypt in an engrossing adventure that takes the
player on a journey to reclaim the family’s stolen treasures. Exploring
intricately rendered settings in Persia, Syria and five other exotic lands, the
latest installment in LUXOR also will unveil a never-before-seen game play mode.
This fall also will introduce 7
Wonders III, the next chapter in the match-3 game that takes you through
magnificent wonders of the world. Along with new wonders to build, 7 Wonders III
will feature a fresh game-play mechanic that will engage players beyond the
typical matching gameplay. The new twist will be revealed in coming months.
“We’re very excited to bring two
completely innovative game mechanics to our franchise hits LUXOR and 7 Wonders,”
said Mark Cottam, CEO of MumboJumbo. “Taking LUXOR out of Egypt and adding a new
game play mode will only elevate the game that players have come to know and
love. And, the new mechanic we’ve developed for 7 Wonders is going to really
blow the fans away.”
New to the MumboJumbo catalog of
titles is Lost Secrets: A Samantha Stone Adventure. The mix of adventure, hidden
object and puzzle game play will appeal to a large number of casual gamers.
Players will follow Samantha Stone, a curious and daring archeologist, on the
verge of a great find in the new adventure series.
This strong fourth quarter line-up
will follow a number of casual hits on the release docket for retail release in
the third quarter. In September, MumboJumbo will release Cooking Academy from
Fugazo and Can You See What I See? by Freeze Tag, both of which performed

Sketch, the new adventure game based on the classic toy from Freeze Tag, and
Tumblebugs 2, the hit marble shooter game from Wildfire Studios in Australia.
These titles will join the previously announced release schedule that includes
Little Farm and Discovery!, both developed by MumboJumbo.
“We’ve had a great first half of the
year in terms of sales and digital releases, and we are looking forward to
finishing out 2008 with strong online and retail performances,” said Cottam. “We
