Squirrels with Scythes, Evil
Pumpkins Galore Storm North America in Gamepot’s Bright Shadow

Answering the call for a unique take
on massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG), Gamepot (USA), Inc.
is proud to announce its second North American offering, Bright Shadow. Making
its way to North American gamers for the first time, Bright Shadow is currently
beloved by countless fans around the globe. While the adored MMORPG’s cute,
cartoon-like characters and novel monsters – known as “Umbra” – will remain as
found in other markets, Gamepot USA is localizing and adapting Bright Shadow
with updated storylines, unique new items, and new systems for nearly endless
character customization and imaginative new experiences.

“Bright Shadow lets players own
their adventure – placing great emphasis on personalized experiences for them
and their friends,” said Thomas Lee, director of business and marketing, Gamepot
(USA), Inc. “With a focus on creativity, finely-tuned social options and
easy-to-learn gameplay, we feel it’s the perfect online entertainment experience
to bring to North America as part of our growing roster of free-to-play games.”

The vast Bright Shadow game world –
complete with its own ever-changing weather system – places a high emphasis on
combat with a horde of unique, deadly monsters and social functions, featuring
vigorous guilds and 20 unique classes, a number almost unheard of in traditional
MMORPGs; making it ideal for both hardcore and casual audiences alike. Also
included in Bright Shadow are an innovative Monster Card system used for a
variety of abilities (including monster summons), a “Soul Power” collection
system to boost skills, tailored item crafting and original pet systems all
geared toward providing a truly customizable undertaking where no two players
will be alike.

Bright Shadow is scheduled for
release for online PC gaming in late 2009, with closed beta beginning this fall.
Like all Gamepot games, Bright Shadow will be a 100% free-to-play experience
with the option of purchasing “Pot Cash” for special in-game items further down
the line.
