True Games Partners With Petroglyph Studios On
Micro-Transaction Based Game

The Two Companies Working on a Global
Free-to-Play, Micro-Transaction Based Online Game

True Games Interactive announced today that it is
partnering with award winning game developer Petroglyph. The two companies are
working together on an upcoming Free-to-Play micro-transaction based online game
for the Personal Computer. True Games will operate the Western version and
collaborate with foreign publishers for global publishing opportunities.

The Petroglyph team is best known for its award
winning Star Wars: Empire At War and Universe at War series, with members also
playing a key role in creating the original Command and Conquer series, while at
Westwood Studios. The founders of Petroglyph elected to break away from Westwood
and start the new development studio, utilizing their unique vision, when the
rest of the Westwood team was relocated by Electronic Arts.

"The Petroglyph founding team pioneered the
Real-Time Strategy genre and they continue to innovate in this segment. It is an
honor to partner with them for this game," said Jeff Lujan, Chief Publishing
Officer at True Games Interactive. "Petroglyph is known for high quality RTS
games that appeal on a global level, and when combined with True Games’
expertise in the micro-transaction arena we have the recipe for an international

"The management at True Games has a truly
impressive background and knowledge of the Free-to-Play and micro-transaction
based space on a global scale," said Chuck Kroegel, CEO and General Manager of
Petroglyph. "This partnership is a perfect match for us."

Unlike other worldwide products where publishing
partners in international markets are signed and added on late in development or
"licensed" after the product is available in one market, True Games and
Petroglyph will work with leading publishers in territories across the world to
adapt the game for cultural tastes in each territory for a true worldwide
launch. They are currently evaluating international partners in all major

"Many Free-to-Play games on the market today have
already launched in other territories giving the U.S. market little to no input
into the development and features," said Bob Drobish, Chief Operating Officer at
True Games Interactive. "This product will be a true cohesive effort between the
development and publishing teams and we have total faith it will produce a
high-quality product."
