Big Daddy's Chicks Launches Beta Game Application for Facebook: "Cold War: Clambake"

Game Represents First Element in Entertainment Franchise

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) - Big Daddy's Chicks Productions, LLC today launched the official beta version of "Cold War: Clambake," a free role-playing game (RPG) available through an application on Facebook. More about the story, characters, and game is featured at

The Facebook application and Web site represent the first elements in a cross-platform entertainment franchise consisting of games, a virtual world, social media, animated shorts and films, comics, and other branded properties.

"Online games and social media sites serve as an entry point for character-driven narratives and entertainment content that can engage audiences across the world through different mediums," said Cheryl Ray, a partner with Big Daddy's Chicks. "We designed Clambake to span independent 'transmedia' channels that work collectively in a way that no entertainment franchise has yet done."

Big Daddy's Chicks developed "Cold War: Clambake" as an edgy, comedic adventure game of political espionage, in which fascism, femme fatales, and flatulence are on the march, and the intelligence community is running in circles. A covert elite spy organization, known as FROST, and its secret agents stand as America's best hope for averting crisis.

Players compete for good or evil in communist propaganda campaigns using ice cream trucks to target pets, subversive boy bands that use ultrasonic waves to drive American youth insane, and other deadly, outlandish scenarios.

Big Daddy's Chicks selected Facebook as the launchpad for "Cold War: Clambake" because of the social networking site's base of 150 million users, open source platform, and growing gaming environment. Millions of users currently play Facebook games such as Mafia Wars and Farmville. According to research firm DFC, the online casual games market will reach a $1.1 billion value by 2011.
