SAUSALITO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 5, 2006 -- Red Mile Entertainment, a worldwide developer and publisher of interactive entertainment software, today announced that Glenn Wong has joined the Company as Executive Vice President of Operations.

Founded in August 2004, Red Mile has developed a number of innovative titles. In 2005, the Company successfully launched its first franchise game, "Heroes of the Pacific," for multiple platforms including the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and the PC. The popular game is also being developed for the PSP® portable entertainment system, and a sequel to the franchise is being developed for the next generation of consoles and PC platforms. Red Mile's most highly anticipated title, "Jackass: The Game," which is based on the extremely successful MTV series, is expected to be published in March 2007. A publicly reporting company, Red Mile is also working towards the listing of its common shares for trading on the OTC Bulletin Board and the TSX Venture Exchange in Canada.

During his tenure, this studio dramatically grew its revenue base and tripled to over 700 employees. He was also a Senior Vice President of Electronic Arts Inc., the dominant player in the interactive electronic entertainment landscape with nearly $3 billion in revenue as of fiscal 2006.

Before joining EA, Mr. Wong was President of Rogers Cable TV British Columbia and oversaw the first large-scale implementation of a 2-way fiber optic network for cable modems in Canada.
