D3Publisher of America Ships The Adventures Of Darwin (TM) To Retail Stores

LOS ANGELES - June 19, 2007 - The time for monkey business has arrived, as
> D3Publisher of America, Inc. (D3PA) announced today that The Adventures of
> DarwinT is shipping to retail stores across North America exclusively for
> the PlayStationR2 computer entertainment system from Sony at an SRP of
> $19.95. In The Adventures of Darwin, players take on the leadership role in
> a group of primitive, yet promising, primates. The game follows the
> evolution of group leader Darwin the monkey and his adorable companions as
> they grow from a small assembly of simple primates to a powerful,
> intelligent colony of human cavemen. This process is prompted as players
> learn about and interact with the vast prehistoric world around them. If
> gamers want to survive life in the hostile world, they must evolve!

> "Just as Darwin does in the game, the PlayStation 2 market is evolving-it's
> now ready to accommodate more games like The Adventures of Darwin that
> appeal to family-friendly audiences," said Sam Guilloud, brand manager,
> D3PA. "With such a large and loyal install base of over 38 million in the
> US (Source NPD), this is the perfect time in the PlayStation 2's life cycle
> to release such a unique title."

> The Adventures of Darwin utilizes innovative real-time strategy elements and
> a first-hand evolutionary gaming experience. Commanding up to 30 primates,
> gamers assign a variety of tasks to their primate companions and make
> real-time decisions to increase the chances for survival of the fittest.
> Tribe members become more intelligent as they evolve, improving survival
> skills and verbal communication as the level of civilization advances. The
> richly colored world is beautiful but dangerous, filled with lush jungles,
> volatile volcanoes, dark caverns and raging rapids. The group hunts wooly
> mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, ferocious dinosaurs and other foes for the
> safety and benefit of the village. Players can lead their tribe on
> adventures, teach them to hunt, collect raw materials to build with and use
> as tools and weapons, and encourage the use of increasingly civilized
> language. The weapons arsenal will advance as the village and its members
> progress. Players of The Adventures of Darwin will find out if they are
> capable of becoming a leader of evolution, or if they are doomed to a life
> of monkey business!
>
>
>
> The Adventures of Darwin was developed by Vingt-et-un-Systems Corporation
> and is rated "E 10+" ("Everyone 10 and older") by the ESRB.
