OpenFeint to Launch Stand-Alone App in January 2010 Featuring a Free Game Every Single Day

OpenFeint App Will Include Direct Account Management, Community Access, and All the Latest Features of OpenFeint 2.4

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - January 6, 2010) - Aurora Feint Inc., developer of the series of award-winning social RPG puzzle games for the iPhone™, announced today that it will be releasing a stand-alone application for its OpenFeint social gaming network in mid-January.

"We've received many requests from players and developers alike, so we decided to release a stand-alone app on the heels of our OpenFeint 2.4 launch," said Eros Resmini, VP Marketing at Aurora Feint. "We hope the app provides our players with a simple way to access the OpenFeint community of 7M+ players and discover content in our catalog of 650+ games."

The landing page of the OpenFeint stand-alone app will have two great new ways to find games:

--  a new free game every single day: You'll be able to see which of your
    friends have it and if they've 'favorited' it. Their review will show up as
    well
--  a dynamic list of games your friends recently played that you may like
    

"We realized that finding good games to play is difficult," commented Jason Citron, CEO/Founder at Aurora Feint. "Unlike other app recommendation services that require you to type in apps or run 3rd party programs on your desktop, the OpenFeint discovery features work automatically."

The stand-alone application will also showcase the latest features of OpenFeint v2.4 (summary available at www.openfeint.com/developers):

--  Presence: See when your friends are online
--  IM: friend to friend IM style chat
--  Inbox: All your messages in one area
--  Forums: Players and Developers now have a place to meet and discuss the
    games they love
--  Developer Announcements: Developers can let players know about the latest
    with their games
--  Developer Newsletters: Traditional newsletter sign-up for developer 
    communications
--  Player Reviews: Players can now 'favorite' a game and review it for their
    friends to see
--  Geolocation Leaderboards: See how you stack up with people near you
--  Network Save Card: Save game data on OpenFeint servers for use with
    multiple devices
--  Game Discovery Enhancements: New ways to find games in OpenFeint
--  Developer Featured Games: Developers can promote content within OpenFeint
--  Simple Ticker: News ticker that displays information about the community
    and games
