NCsoft and Ideazon Unveil the Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa® Limited Edition Keyset for Zboard™ and FragMat™ Mouse Pad

New Guild Wars® Keyset for Zboard also on the horizon

VAUGHAN, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 2, 2007) - Ideazon Inc. today announced its new custom Limited Edition Keyset and FragMat™ gaming mouse pad designed specifically for the highly anticipated NCsoft® PC title - Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa, which is set to launch in North America on October 19, 2007.

Ideazon, designer and developer of the Zboard™, the world's first keyboard designed for PC gamers, has partnered with NCsoft to bring gamers a custom keyset for Zboard and FragMat gaming mouse pad that will both enhance game play and immerse players into the epic sci-fi RPG game. Ideazon's Tabula Rasa keyset helps consumers focus on the game without having to memorize keys - unlike a regular keyboard. The Tabula Rasa keyset for Zboard has all major game functions clearly labeled and mapped out to allow players to focus on the in-game experience.

"This is the second title we have worked on with NCsoft and we expect the Tabula Rasa Limited Edition Keyset to be a popular weapon for gamers this Fall," said Chris Rathgeber, President, Ideazon Inc. "Offering all players a competitive advantage and easy access to game-play action out-of-the-box, Ideazon continues to innovate and change the way gamers experience their entertainment."

Set on the frontlines of an epic intergalactic war, Tabula Rasa is a massively multiplayer war game that combines the character growth of an RPG with action, skill, stealth, and strategy. The Tabula Rasa Limited Edition Keyset for Zboard will offer players:

- Clearly labeled commands against a backdrop of stunning official game graphics;

- 12 single-press emote keys including cheer, salute, push-ups and jumping jacks;

- 4 dedicated chat keys to organize in-game strategy; and,

- Quick and easy access to game dialog and menu commands.

In addition, the Tabula Rasa FragMat gaming mouse pad features: official game graphics, an oversized control landscape, an ultra thin 1/14 inch design and a reduced friction polymer surface.

On the heels of the new Guild Wars: Eye of the North™ expansion pack, gamers can also expect a new Guild Wars® keyset, which builds on the huge success of the Guild Wars Factions™ Keyset design. Offering dedicated action keys and fully labeled commands, easy access emote keys and colorful game graphics, the Guild Wars Keyset is compatible with all Guild Wars titles.

The Tabula Rasa Limited Edition Keyset for Zboard and FragMat mouse pad will be available in early October at all major retail and E tail outlets. The Guild Wars keyset for Zboard will be available in November. The suggested retail price for the Zboard is $49.99 (USD), the Tabula Rasa and Guild Wars keysets are $19.99 (USD) each and the Tabula Rasa FragMat is $14.99 (USD).
